The Challenge

Secondary treated wastewater (the source used for the plantation) includes high levels of suspended particles, metal, salt, ions and biological communities, which cause the clogging of emitters. Using the right
filtration system to prevent irrigation emitter clogging is absolutely essential to ensure consistent flow
rates and uniform distribution of water to crops. To tackle this issue, the plantation’s owners originally
installed semi-automatic screen filters on each secondary head control. Although the semi-automatic screen filters
were successfully preventing emitter clogging, a new problem emerged; the plantation’s owners had to
constantly work at cleaning and preventing the clogging of the filters themselves.


The Solution

After consulting with the irrigation team at Amiad, the solution was clear. For the plantation’s owners to be able to save on precious
time, money and manpower they would need to replace their manual filters with Mini Sigma automatic self-cleaning filters.
