Numedic says its Adcam irrigators are spreading effluent on pastures all over the world.

The popular model is being used in England, the US, South America and South Africa as well as on farms throughout New Zealand.

“There are many thousands of our Adcam travelling irrigators all over the world and I would put that down to its great reputation for reliability and performance, it just does the job well for many years – decades actually,” says Numedic’s managing director Andrew Millar.

“Our Adcam 750 is by far the most popular model, it can run at low pressure if needed, even down to 20psi pressure at the irrigator. Virtually every part is hot dip galvanised or stainless steel, so durability and long life is second to none,” says Millar.

Application depths from 16mm down to 4mm are achieved via the Patented Adcam adjustable cam system so the speed of the irrigator can easily be altered to produce any of seven different application rates.

Numedic says its Evenspread design is achieved via a combination of the irrigator’s uneven boom lengths, the different return angles on each boom, and the orientation and design of the nozzles.

“Our Evenspread design makes good sense, aside from helping to ensure compliance with regulations, it also means better pasture growth and therefore better productivity,” says Millar.
