Tips For Selecting The Valve For Smart Irrigation Industry
What Is The Smart Irrigation Industry?
Due to the artificial irrigation method used in the traditional irrigation industry, it will cause problems such as large water consumption, low efficiency, high labor cost and low planting effectiveness. With the needs of human development and the growth of science and technology, the current global agricultural irrigation technology has gradually upgraded from artificial irrigation to intelligent irrigation. Especially in Israel, the United States, the Netherlands, Australia, China and other countries, their smart irrigation technology has developed rapidly.
Intelligent irrigation realizes the intelligent management and control of farmland irrigation through the construction of a series of equipment and accessories, using sensing technology, artificial intelligence and other technologies, through the collection, analysis and processing of farmland soil, crop growth, weather and other data , Improve the efficiency of farmland irrigation, reduce the waste of water resources, and improve the yield and quality of crops.
Advantages Of Smart Irrigation Industry
Artificial Intelligence Technology Is Gradually Maturing
With the continuous development and application of big data and artificial intelligence technology, intelligent irrigation systems will be more precise and efficient, better able to meet the needs of different crops, and improve crop yield and quality.
● Application Of Cloud Computing And Internet Of Things Technology
The application of cloud computing and Internet of Things technology will realize remote monitoring and management of intelligent irrigation systems, improve the intelligence of irrigation systems, and reduce operation and maintenance costs.
● Save Water
With the increasing shortage of global water resources and the increasing awareness of water conservation and environmental protection, the application of intelligent irrigation systems will be more extensive and become an important means of sustainable agricultural development.
The Role Of Valves In The Smart Irrigation Industry
Valves are used to control the flow and direction of water, and are an important part of an intelligent irrigation system. The valve can irrigate efficiently and accurately according to the information fed back from the system. Helps improve precision irrigation rates, increase production efficiency and reduce water consumption.
Types Of Valves Used In Smart Irrigation Industry
Because the valve needs to be connected to the intelligent control system, electric actuator valves are generally selected. The electric actuator can be compatible with various control systems to realize remote control.
● Electric Ball Valve
Electric ball valve is one of the most commonly used valves in intelligent irrigation systems. It has the advantages of simple structure, convenient operation, and long service life. It can be used to control small and medium flow of water.
● Electric Butterfly Valve
The electric butterfly valve is generally used to control large flow of water. It has a simple structure, light weight, and easy installation. It can be used to control the main pipeline in the irrigation system.
● Electric Gate Valve
The electric gate valve is a linear motion valve, suitable for controlling high-pressure, large-flow water flow. It has the advantages of good sealing, simple structure, and long service life. It is often used to control the main pipeline in irrigation systems.
● Electric Regulating Valve
The electric regulating valve can realize the precise adjustment of the water flow according to the needs. It is suitable for the occasion of regulating the flow and pressure of the irrigation water flow. It is often used in the water separator and branch pipes in the irrigation system.
In practical applications, we need to choose different types of valves in combination according to the specific needs and working conditions of the irrigation system, such as the use of electric valves with manual valves, or the use of pneumatic valves with manual valves to achieve precise control of water flow and Maximize water saving effect.
Tips For Selecting The Valve For Smart Irrigation Industry
● Flow Rate Requirements
According to the flow requirements of the irrigation system, select the appropriate valve type and specification to ensure that the valve can meet the flow requirements of the water flow.
● Pressure Requirement
According to the pressure requirements of the irrigation system, select the appropriate valve type and specification to ensure that the valve can withstand the pressure of the water flow.
● Material Requirements
Because the water for irrigation will be pure water, water with chemical fertilizers or water with pesticides added. Therefore, we need to select valve materials according to the requirements of irrigation water quality and use environment to ensure that the valve can resist corrosion and wear.
● Control Method
According to the control requirements of the irrigation system, select the appropriate valve control method, such as manual, ectric or pneumatic, to meet the needs of the control system and realize intelligent irrigation.
● Automation Requirements
According to the automation requirements of the irrigation system, electric valves that can be connected to the intelligent control system are selected to realize automatic control and remote monitoring.
When selecting a valve, it is necessary to consider its ease of maintenance and replacement, so that it can be easily maintained and replaced when required.
Select the appropriate valve type and specification to ensure that the valve can meet the requirements of the irrigation system and maximize water saving.
