When we spray sprinklers are used in irrigation systems, fast and easy installation are two of the most important concerns for the installer. Both of those concerns are put at ease when the choice is a Hunter Fixed Pattern nozzle. While there are many landscapes that require precise fine-tuning to achieve the optimum coverage, the vast majority of spray heads that install call for the use of standard angle nozzles…that is, full-circle half-circle and quarter-circle patterns. When installing nozzles along straight runs or in areas that require 360º arcs, labour will be saved by not having to adjust each nozzle to those common patterns. With patterns that feature precise edges, Hunter Fixed Pattern nozzles have been painstakingly designed to provide superior coverage and minimize wind drift. Eight different radius ranges are available, each able to be reduced if needed for fine-tuning and each colour-coded for quick and easy radius identification.
Full, Even Coverage Across Every Pattern
Every Hunter Fixed Pattern Nozzle has been precision engineered to ensure that the entire area of coverage receives its intended amount of water. Whether it is a quarter-, half- or full-circle pattern, the discharge from the nozzle features a consistent trajectory from all sides, which assures delivery at the same high level of performance in every direction. Hunter nozzles also are noted for emitting the optimum droplet size: large enough to avoid the problems of misting, small enough to provide nice, even distribution.
Any spray head body that uses female-threaded nozzles can have the ultimate in versatility with a aHunter nozzle. And the most versatile of the wide array of hunter nozlles is the Adjustable Arc nozzle. With an easy turn by hand – no tools for 25 to 360 degrees to keep the spray in the areas as designed. In addition, the radius can be reduced up to 25% without changing the pattern distribution. Thus, virtually any landscape needs can be met, including those areas that require custom arcs. Today, more and more landscapes are calling for a nozzle that can be precisely set to handle meandering walkways or atypical, hard-to-handle sharp angles. Why keep an inventory of the many different odd arc nozzles that you would seldom use? When you stock Hunter Adjustable Arc nozzles, you’ll always have just the right nozzle…no matter what the job is.
The Ideal Solution for Curving Landscapes
Most nozzles have been designed specifically to provide optimum efficiency at the standard angles of 90, 180 and 360 degrees. And while most expanses of turf call for the use of such nozzles, today more and more landscapes are requiring a nozzle that can deliver effective coverage to sites whose plot plans don’t fall into these standard angles. Irregularly shaped planter beds and meandering walkways create landscapes with odd angles that are in need of an irrigation solution that can provide effective coverage. Hunter Adjustable Arc nozzles can be set at any angle from 25 to 360 degrees, allowing sprinklers to be fine-tuned to exactly the precise pattern needed. You’ll never need worry about having to much coverage (eliminating the wasted water that would normally end up overshooting your lawn and land on the sidewalk) or too little (no more dry spots for those few extra degrees of grass that other nozzles can’t quite reach). Best of all, no tools are required to adjust the arc, it’s all done easily by hand.
Pop-up Micro Spray Nozzles
The unique pop-up design of the Hunter Micro-Spray Nozzle, coupled with the fact that it attaches directly to a pop-up sprinkler, makes this alternative to drip a winner. When not in use, both the nozzle and spray head body retract, so nothing sticks up above the surface.
Short Radius Nozzles
Hunter Short Radius Nozzles permit well-controlled easy watering of planter boxes and bed areas. These nozzles (in 2-, 4-, and 6-foot radius versions) are just the answer for small spaces that have longed for a better solution than trying to drastically reduce the radius range on a nozzle designed for longer throws.
Strip Pattern Nozzles
To accomodate the needs of the long narrow planting strips, Hunter has the industry’s first left and right 1.5 x 4.6m corner strip nozzles, and a 1.5 x 9.1m side strip nozzle. All three nozzles can be adjusted down 25% without the loss of efficient pattern distribution.
Stream Spray Nozzles – S-8A and S-16A
Combining the convenience of customised arc selection and a lower appliction rate, this dial-setting, adjustable arc nozzle offers a stream spray that throws as far out as 5.5m at 276kPA. An outstanding nozzle to use on slopes and ground cover areas with tight soils that require a low precipitation rate.
Hunter presents a way to meet your deep watering needs that offers considerably more efficiency than drip irrigation. With the ability to compensate for pressure differences, the Hunter PCB (and PCN, which attaches directly to pop-up spray bodies) allows the output of water to remain constant regardless of the input pressure, resulting in a precise application never before achieved in bubblers. The same holds true with the MSBN and 5-CST-B nozzles, designed for deep watering of larger planted areas. Now, every plant, shrub or tree can receive the same amount of water required with no excess runoff or waste. Best of all, because it’s so simple to install, you’ll have the perfect alternative to drip…no fancy filtration, no unsighlty above-ground tubes, and considerably less chance of damage. For a more attractive, more efficient way to deep water, let the idea of Hunter’s bubbler products to sink in.
With the pressure compensating nozzle (PCN), you get all the advantages over traditional drip irrigation plus a product that sits atop a riser that retracts into the ground when not in use. It’s the most tamper proof, eye appealing method of deep watering available today (attention specifiers…you’re going to like this).
Four different PCB models means that you can choose from colourcoded flow rates of either 0.91, 1.91, 3.81 or 7.61 litres per minute to eliminate guesswork and guarantee that all your greenery gets exactly the water it needs. Or choose the AFB model which pressure compensates to a 7.61 LPM flow and can be fine-tuned with a stainless steel screw adjustment.
A Hunter exclusive! Four streams on the half-circle, eight streams on the full-circle discharge water to more effectively cover a large area needed in many planted zones. And because it installs on a pop-up sprinkler, the bubbler retracts when not irrigating, which prevents damage (used on a 12′ pop-up, the sprinkler will clear the plants).
