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.

Non-pressure Compensating for Heap Leaching in Mines

Leach Line X is made with UV and acid resistant polyethylene tubing, the highest quality resins available. The dripper is specially designed with full lenth filter capacity, maintaining proper dripper performance for consistent output flow. 

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 essential supply of water for consistent output of flow.
  • Injection molded drippers add strength, durability for long-term performance.
  • Increased flow path velocity with a wide tooth pattern maximizes flow path velocity. Contaminants pass easily through the dripper, virtually eliminated plugging.
  • Anti-migration clips/ring (pre-installed) prevents solution migration on uneven surfaces and slopes, economical - saves labor costs.
