The Uniram is the pressure-compensated and self-closing inline dripper hose from Netafim with the unique self-cleaning labyrinth. Thanks to the self-closing function, the dripper hose never runs dry and the pressure-compensated function ensures a uniform delivery, irrespective of differences in pressure due to long hose lengths, short dripper spacings and/or slopes in the ground. Short, uniform irrigation cycles are thus possible so that both soil-grown and substrate crops can be treated.
An optimum water distribution in the ground means minimum leaching and better growth, but also less dry patches and hence and improved soil cooling effect.
The Uniram can be used for underground dripping (Subsurface Drip: SDI). The self-closing effect prevents dirt from being drawn in and stops roots from growing into the hose. Uniram drippers have a large internal filter and are therefore very suitable for applications with contaminated water. The diaphragm is made of silicone so that cleaning with chlorine-based agents is possible. The Uniram is a completely smooth hose. Laying and removal of the hose is easy. The Uniram is frost-resistant.
Uniram dripper hoses are widely used in solid ground for alstroemeria, freesia and lycianthes; for amaryllis and anthurium the hose is laid in the substrate beds. Other common applications are other ornamental plants in solid ground, such as gypsophila, summer flowers and parent plants, but also for e.g. strawberries, berries and asparagus.
