New Pressure Range for Pivot Orbitor

February 6, 2016

Nelson Irrigation is pleased to announce an expanded pressure range for the O3000 and O3030 Orbitor sprinklers. Testing concludes that pressures as low as 6 psi (0.4 bar) are sufficient for proper water application (not to be used at 6 psi with nozzles smaller than #16). The recommended pressure range is now 6-20 psi (0.4-1.4 bar) for the weighted version and 6-10 psi (0.4-0.7 bar) for the plastic-cover version. This applies to all plate options (blue, black and purple). The throw diameter at 6’ (1.8 m) mounting height at 6psi with #36 nozzle is 46’ for the black plate.The Pivot Orbitor with its unique bracketless design prevents debris hang-up and water pattern misting common to conventional sprinklers and provides outstanding uniformity.
