Technology at Work
Nelson Irrigation Corporation – a world leader in pivot sprinkler technology – continues to focus on developing state-of-the-art products that save water, save energy and do a better job of irrigating.
THE R3000 ROTATOR®
The R3000 Rotator is the ultimate sprinkler for mechanized irrigation, featuring unmatched performance in throw distance and overlap. Designed specifically for providing the very best water application on center pivots, the controlled rotation of engineered streams provides superior throw and superior uniformity — unmatched in creating the best available conditions for getting the water into the ground.
GREATEST THROW ON DROP TUBES. The R3000 Rotator applies water further ahead of the machine than any other pivot sprinkler and wets the field with intermittent applications of target droplets for optimal soil infiltration conditions.
MOUNT UP TOP OR ON ANY DROP TUBE. With operating performance over the widest pressure range and on any mounting configuration, the R3000 Rotator can be configured to the perfect match for specific crop and agronomic needs.
DRY WHEEL PACKAGES. The PC-R3000 Part Circle Rotator can now be on “boombacks” with IACO’s 15’ Hose Boom! To learn more go to: www.boombacks.com.
THE O3000 ORBITOR
Featuring technology that eliminates the struts of a sprinkler body, Nelson’s new Pivot Orbitor provides outstanding uniformity and optimal droplets at low pressures (10-20 psi). The streamlined design allows for excellent movement through canopy and over field obstacles lending to less debris hang-up.
THE GOLD PLATE FOR THE A3000 ACCELERATOR
The new gold plate for the A3000 Accelerator provides the option of superior throw diameter, providing a lower application rate and longer soak time for better infiltration and reduced runoff. Choose the maroon plate for a low stream height and maximum wind-fighting performance. For ultimate versatility - Nelson has added the new Sprinkler Converter. This adapter allows quick in-field changes from various modes —Irrigate, Spray, Bubble & Chemigate — all with one sprinkler!
