Leach Line™ X

Leach Line™ X dripper’s flow path is the industry’s widest allowing particles to pass easily through the dripper, virtually eliminating plugging. Drippers are welded into a wall of seamless tubing, providing added strength and durability.

Leach Line™ X

Non-pressure Compensating for Heap Leaching in Mines

The Dripline is made with UV and acid resistant polyethylene tubing, the highest quality resins available.

Self Cleaning Mechanism - High Clogging Resistance

  • Industry’s widest and shortest dripper flow path:
    • Patented TurboNet technology allows for a wide labyrinth cross-section while keeping the labyrinth very short – these features are critical for the proper performance of a dripper
    • No laminar flow chambers in the dripper’s flow path that can encourage clogging
  • Specially-designed filter and its location away from the wall of the tubing allow for reduced filter-slot width and long-term operation. Dripper performs properly even if 90% of the filter is plugged.
  • Constructed of durable polyethylene – UV and acid resistant.
  • Five dripper flow rates – provides teh broadest range of flow rates available.
  • Lowest coefficient of manufacturing variability (Cv) in the industry: <0.03.
  • No special storage requirements – does not degrade if stored outdoors.

Product Advantages

  • Wider cross-section allows large particles through short flow path.
  • Full length filter maintains the essential supply of water to the dripper delivering a consistent output of flow.
  • Injection molded drippers welded inot a seamless wall of tubing for added strength, durability and long-term performance.
  • Increased flow path velocity - commonly used turbulent drippers have overlapping tooth patterns, easily catching debris.
  • Improves dripper performance by widening the tooth pattern, maximizing flow path velocity, allowing contaminants to pass easily through the dripper, virtually eliminated plugging.
  • Anit-migration drip line clip and pre-installed leach line ring prevents solution migration on uneven surfaces and slopes, economical - saves labor costs. Available for .540", .620" and .690" I.D. and is pre-installed at Netafim USA.
