The large diameter 42 GPH, 360-degree micro sprinkler assembly with brown nozzle on ½” FNPT base is an insect proof rotary micro sprinkler with one stream pattern and coverage of up to 40’ @ 30 PSI. When the spinner mechanism is closed at the end of the irrigation cycle insects are prevented from entering the turbine. This micro sprinkler is suited for irrigation under tree canopies, and for seedlings, flowerbeds, groundcover, mature trees and nurseries. The fully assembled insect proof micro sprinkler comes with a ½” FNPT base.
The Drip Store’s line of insect proof single stream rotary micro sprinklers presents an advanced concept in micro irrigation systems. The micro sprinklers’ unique drive mechanism produce strong rotational propulsion at lowers pressure. A small backup filter ensures extra protection, and also serves as a secondary nozzle, keeping the droplet size even and providing excellent distribution uniformity. The micro sprinklers use interchangeable components with two nozzles suitable for applications in the irrigation of seedlings, young saplings and mature trees.
To install the 360-degree micro sprinkler use the complete assembly on 1/2" FNPT or with spike, micro tubing and barb. To replace the head of the micro sprinkler, pull the head with the nozzle out of the assembly and replace with a new head with the same color nozzle. Make sure to flush the line before inserting the new head with the nozzle. No tool or glue is required.
To install the micro sprinklers into a drip tubing lateral, first select the flow rate and the micro sprinkler diameter. Use the assembly with the spike and the micro tubing by first inserting the spike into the ground about 2-4”, then punch a hole into the side of the drip tubing using a punch, and then insert the barb on the micro tubing into the drip tubing.
