Growers no longer need to spend time and labor assembling riser pipe in the field with the new Certa-Set preassembled riser from North American Specialty Products LLC (NASP).
The riser is designed to integrate with the company’s Certa-Set PVC irrigation system.
The Certa-Set preassembled riser from NASP (formerly CertainTeed Pipe and Foundations) eliminates the need for customers to source components from multiple suppliers and solvent-weld them together.
The riser now comes preassembled using state-of-the-art spin welding technology which creates a continuous plastic bond between pieces and a stronger riser assembly.
Made with NASP’s specially modified PVC pipe, the new riser rounds out the complete Certa-Set system and provides a single source for high-performance irrigation solutions.
Certa-Set’s specially modified PVC is designed to better withstand the potentially damaging effects of prolonged exposure to sunlight, will not pit or corrode, and will not deteriorate due to electrolysis or injection of fertilizers or chemicals.
Certa-Set sled couplings provide a hydraulic pressure seal which eliminates leaky joints, conserves water, and reduces the possibility of crop loss due to puddles.
Certa-Set operates at 20 percent less friction than aluminum which the company says lowers pumping costs. The distribution uniformity is 84 percent resulting in increased crop yield.
The new riser, along with the complete Certa-Set system, will be on exhibit at the 2015 World Ag Expo, Feb. 10-12, in Tulare, Calif. at booth number I35 and Pavilion B-2211-2212.
