Nelson Irrigation Introduces New Orbitor Pivot Sprinkler
Nelson Irrigation Corporation – a world leader in sprinkler technology – is pleased to introduce the O3000 Orbitor for mechanized irrigation. The Orbitor features new technology that eliminates the struts of a sprinkler body to provide outstanding uniformity and optimal droplets at low operating pressures. Designed with an innovative bracketless assembly, debris hang-up and water-pattern misting common to conventional sprinklers are eliminated. Irrigators can expect long wear-life, reliable operation and durability even in the toughest water conditions. The Orbitor utilizes Nelson’s universal 3TN quick-change, color-coded plastic nozzle. The O3000 Orbitor offers an excellent water application solution from 10-20 PSI (.7-1.4 bar) operating pressure. This low pressure sprinkler is mounted on drop tubes and utilizes low trajectory angles to keep the water down out of the wind for maximum water and energy conservation. The O3000 is available with the choice of two plates to meet desired droplet configurations specific to site and soil requirements.
