Uhing Rolling Ring Drive: Application for Drip Irrigation Systems

The Uhing rolling ring drive has been proving its application versatility for decades. And yet, new applications are constantly emerging. The linear drive now was found to be extremely useful in agriculture – in devices that lay out and retrieve tubes or flexible pipes for drip irrigation.

Usually, the crop on the field is irrigated with spray-irrigation systems covering large areas. But these systems are inefficient as only a small portion of the water reaches the crop. The major part of the water evaporates or seeps into the ground without being beneficial to the roots.

One option how to increase the efficiency of irrigation is to use tubes or flexible pipes dug into the ground. These tubes feature drippers through which the water escapes and directly reaches the plants in quantities exceeding those obtained by spray irrigation.
