These devices can be used directly, at pressures of 1.5 to 4 bars, or constitute one of the elements of a large capacity irrigation equipment; its range does not normally exceed 25 m.
The cannon designation is attributed to a large-scale boom that rotates slowly around a vertical axis and can distribute up to about 130 m3 / h of water, at a pressure of 3-6 bars and at a distance of ± 50 m, which corresponds to an area of more than 1 há
This system can present a hose up to 600 m in length and have two cannons, 20 m apart, mounted on a cross bar.
Considering the mobility of the cannon support and the winding coil of the hose (or cable) you have:
– Mobile irrigation cannon and frame with the fixed winding system
– Irrigation system mounted on a towed moving frame
– Mobile irrigation cannon mounted on a self-propelled frame
