Technology

IrriPro is the only irrigation software that allows you to design by drawing the elements thanks to the INDO technology (on Object) developed by Irriworks. Watch the video for seeing the great potential of this tool.

In this page it will be dealt with irrigation design software and other tools to design irrigation systems. Nowadays engineers involved in the design of irrigation systems make use of tools such as abacuses, graphs, tables provided by manufacturers of materials for irrigation in their catalogs. Are also developed spreadsheets and several companies offer software to design irrigation systems, but these are based on approximate algorithms. Typically, these software are created for small projects of irrigation systems for public parks and gardening, and make use of simplifying assumptions valid only for small plants for irrigation. Therefore, these instruments, and also the irrigation software proposed by third parties, are inadequate for professional use and for the design of irrigation systems of large dimensions. In summary, the design of irrigation systems is now based on:
 
  • Empirical methods, slow and laborious, which consist in testing, directly in the field, the material to be adopted in the irrigation system;
  • Abacuses/graphs or tables provided by manufacturers of materials for irrigation in their catalogs;
  • Tedious mathematical procedures that consider only standard and unrealistic through the use of simple or sophisticated spreadsheets;
  • Irrigation design software, based on approximate algorithms, usually born for small projects of public green and gardening, which are supported by simplifying assumptions valid for small irrigation systems but less suitable for professional use and for the design of large sizes irrigation systems. These software, based on inaccurate calculation criteria, are more dedicated to the CAD drawing of irrigation systems, rather than a professional complete project equipped with a reliable hydraulic calculation.
 
There are other methods that combine the classical equations of hydraulics, but do not consider the characteristics of hydraulic functioning of the emitter resulting in inaccurate or too expensive in terms of IT resources and difficult to implement in software for irrigation. The following table summarizes the comparison between the different design procedures:

Google Maps/Earth

In IrriPro the elements of a irrigation system, such as emitters and pipes contain hydraulic, physic and geometric characteristics and the terrain has GIS infos obtained by Google Maps/Google Earth.

Awards

Thanks to IrriPro's innovative technology, which has achieved some international awards, it's now possible to calculate all the hydraulic parameters and design correctly and efficiently any kind of irrigation system.
