Sprinkler comes from the Latin word aspersus, in turn derived from sprinkle (which can be translated as “spray”). It’s about a device which enables sprinkle: spread in small drops.
The sprinkler spreads Water or other liquid pressure. Its mechanism allows to convert the pressurized flow into Dew.
Sprinklers therefore generate a kind of curtain Thanks to the Pressure with which the fluid is expelled, to the nozzle that the liquid passes through and to the firing angle. Said curtain tends to be uniform.
There are the electric sprinklers and the mechanical rotating sprinklers. Typically, several sprinklers are installed, located at a certain distance from each other, to cover a larger area with their rain.
The sprinkler irrigation It is frequently used to supply water to plants. The effectiveness of its use in crops depends on the source of the water catchment (a lake, a river, a well, etc.), the system used to pressurize and the pipes, among other issues.
Among the benefits of water with sprinklers, the reduced consumption of water in comparison to other methods and the precise dosage of the irrigation from the pressure control appear. As a negative aspect, the specialists mention the humidity that is generated in the stem and in the leaves, which can promote the emergence of mushrooms.
It should be noted that sprinklers are not only used to spray water. There are also sprinkler equipment that is used to spray a herbicide, in such a way that a land receives the amount it needs of this substance to prevent the development of weeds.
