1 Hydraulics Taking the Irritation out of Irrigation My plants are getting irrigated, so I m all set, right? Marcus Duck Academic Advisor, Instructor & Program Coordinator MSU s 2-year Horticulture Programs in East Lansing Hydraulics Hydraulics study of behavior of fluids at rest (static) and in motion (dynamic) Relationships between flow (gpm), velocity (fps), and pressure (psi) Crucial to determine pressure losses in pipe, fittings, valves, etc. Static Pressure water at rest Created by elevation change or pump A column of water 1 ft high = psi Every 1 ft elevation change = change of psi Pushing water up hill, subtract psi Water going downhill, add psi Dynamic Pressure water in motion Always find static psi losses or gains first Then dynamic psi losses due to movement Friction loss occurs due to turbulence created by moving water 4 factors affect friction losses in pipe Friction Loss in Pipe 1. Velocity 5fps in PE / PVC; 7fps in metal 2. Inside Diameter (i.d.) smaller creates more psi loss due to increased turbulence 3. Roughness C rating of pipe 4. Length 1

Wall Irrigation Association Friction Loss Chart 2008 CLASS 200 PVC IPS PLASTIC PIPE ASTM D-2241 (1120,1220) SDR 21 C=0 PSI Loss Per 100 Feet of Pipe Class 3 1/2" 3/4" 1" 1 1/4" 1 1/2" 2" 2 1/2" 3" 4" 6" Flow Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI Velocity PSI GPM FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS FPS LOSS Funny pipe don t use too much! Controllers Types of controllers: 1. Electromechanical 2. Hybrid 3. Central Control 4. Hydraulic (water tubes instead of wire) Tech. constantly changing; stay up-to-date Valves Used b/c not enough water to run everything at one time Open & close by signal from controller Valves buried under ground in plastic valve boxes USE THEM Valves Two Types 1. Hydraulic, Normally Open Small water tube from controller to valve Water under pressure = valve closed Controller allows psi to drop = valve open Good for dirty water systems Hole in tube = valve stays on 2

3 Valves Two Types 2. Electric, Normally Closed: Controller sends 24V to solenoid on valve lifts plunger off to open port. Water psi on top of diaphragm drops valve opens Wire problems = valve won t open Pipe PVC (main & laterals) Rigid, installed by trenching Slip fittings; primer + glue Pipe Polyethylene (small mains & laterals) Flexible, installed with a puller Barbed fittings; clamps Copper Service line; plumber install? 3

4 Spray Patterns (Arcs) Full circle (360 ) Half circle (180 ) edges, borders, etc. Quarter circle (90 ) Variable Arc Nozzles (VANs) - 1º to 360º Rotors use those that allow arc adjustments Spray Patterns (Trajectories) Standard 30º to 40º above horizontal Low or flat 10º to º High Greater than 40º Fixed / Sprays 75% DU = excellent; 60% DU = good 30 psi optimum psi for most heads High PR (1 2.5 /hr); use short cycles Strip nozzles narrow turf strips Flood heads small spaces, single plants Nozzles easily interchanged Fixed / Sprays Fixed Nozzles = to 17 max radius Fixed or Rotor? Rotating Nozzles = 8 to 30 radius Rotors 80% DU = excellent; 70% DU = good Mid-size Rotor = to 30 radius Rotor = 25 to 40 radius 4

5 Micro Irrigation Drip, micro sprays, bubblers FILTERS! Distribution Curves A = 314 ft 2 (6%) B = 942 ft 2 (19%) C = 71 ft 2 (31%) D = 2199 ft 2 (44%) Overlap Determination Most heads have triangular shaped distribution curves Head to Head = Even distribution of water (DU) & balanced precipitation rates (PR) Overlap Determination Manufacturer specs = max allowable spacing This is a reference number only It applies to dead calm situations & should not be used in an actual design Always anticipate a minimum 4 MPH wind when spacing heads Overlap Determination You can increase or decrease spacing of fixed heads 1 foot and rotors by 3 feet Distribution uniformity (DU) goal when performing head layout in design Don t want wet or dry spots 5

6 Precipitation Rates PR - speed at which an amount of water is Precipitation Rates Rates vary according to sprinkler type: applied Used to estimate run times Used to prevent wet or dry areas If not known usually over watering occurs Precipitation Rates High PR = runoff on soils with low IR Use shorter cycles Total run time limited by total GPM available at the source Low PR systems cost less: Fewer valves per acre Fewer controller stations per acre Water supply is 30 GPM 2 min ea 1 30 min Radius Adjustment and DU Distribution Uniformity (DU) measures how evenly water is applied Sprinkler designed to operate well at a given radius Adjust too much = DU reduced = dry spots PR is avg amount of water over an area Does not account for DU Radius Adjustment and DU Fixed Spray Heads: Adjustment screw changes radius and internally changes GPM Adjustment screw radius and GPM are adjusted here, before water leaves the nozzle 6

7 Radius Adjustment and DU Rotors and Impact Heads: Adjustment screw, flap, or pin externally disrupts spray radius w/o change in GPM Radius Adjustment and DU NEVER reduce radius of spray on rotors to less than 75% of manufacturer s radius Example: 33 ft. x 75% = ft.
