Driptech Micro-Irrigation Kit
Driptech Micro-Irrigation Kit is a drip irrigation technology kit developed for smallholder farmers.
The Driptech Micro-Irrigation Kit or Instakit, is a one-acre drip irrigation kit with pre-assembled components packed in a box with a pictorial installation manual intended for small-plot farmers. The kit contains all of the components necessary for drip irrigation except a mainline.
Driptech InstaKit systems are distributed by The Global Green Company Limited.
Goal 2: Zero hunger
The product is manufactured in local production facilities.
The average depth of irrigation water applied minus the average absolute deviation from this depth
What is the maximum operating pressure?
What is the longest drip line?
Safest operating pressure
The Driptech Instakit includes drip tape, takeoff valves, rubber grommets, a filter, and a hand drill tool. Additional materials necessary include PVC pipe (40, 50 or 63mm diameters), PVC fittings, and connection to a water pump or water tank.
The system is comprised of a head unit that is connected to the water source and the sub-unit, which is the water transport system. The lateral rolls are the ‘at-the-plant’ water distributors. The head unit controls pressure as well as filtration. The Driptech system uses a mesh-type screen filter, which allows farmers to clean it by flushing it with water. The sub-unit delivers water to the drip tape lateral rolls.
Driptech staff and local dealers can provide technical support.
The Laser Drip, Laser Spray, DT-Thinwall, DT-Dripline, DT-Polytube, and DT-J Dripper can be purchased separately.
The manufacturer specifies that the InstaKit works with pumps and gravity pressure, is simple and quick to install, is easy to operate and maintain, and is low cost.
No known safety hazards are related to this product.
The InstaKit requires a mainline, a water source, and an irrigation pump or gravity-powered water source.
