Efficient irrigation is one of the most important factors in crop production. A uniform water application within the wetted pattern, combined with proper overlap of the individual sprinkler patterns, distributes the water evenly across the crop area – thus giving the water the best opportunity to infiltrate into the root zone. In addition, a uniform water distribution over the entire wetted diameter of the sprinkler keeps the instantaneous application rate low, which reduces the chance of ponding and runoff.

Komet 3D Motion System

Komet 3D Motion System
  • Komet 3D Motion System - 2

    The deflector rotates around the central sprinkler axis as well as its own inclined axis.

Komet’s 3-D Motion System gives the best possible result of uniform water distribution within the whole distribution pattern. The capability of superior water distribution is derived from a combination of components working together, among them, the very responsive 3-D bearing built into the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) sprinkler. This bearing allows the movement of the deflector around the central axis of the sprinkler as well as the deflector’s own axis. As the water flows through the sprinkler in its central axis, the deflector oscillates around this central axis, diverting precise amounts of water radially into the air for effective droplet dispersion starting at very low pressures.

Large Wetted Diameter

Because of the 3-D motion of the deflector, the water is radially diverted into a sequence of effective, precise amounts of water. This gives the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) its impressive throw, while maintaining consistent distribution uniformity throughout its range of operation.

Reduced Dripping

The specially designed body legs of the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) provide minimal interference for the water streams as they exit the deflector grooves. This combined with the odd number of body legs and the even number of deflector grooves, a configuration unique to the industry, reduces dripping to a minimum.

  • Komet Precision Twister (KPT) - Reduced Dripping

    The even number of streams and odd number of specially designed body legs means that only one stream hits a body leg at any given time.

Komet Universal Pivot Sprinkler Komet Universal Pivot Sprinkler

Komet Universal Pivot Sprinkler

The superior operation of the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) sprinkler also at low pressures and flow rates, and its consistent distribution pattern from the pivot point to the end, allows the use of one sprinkler throughout the entire irrigation system. The sprinkler distributes the water effectively in a pressure range from 6 to 20 psi and a nozzle range from 10/128” up to 52/128”. This feature is unique to the industry making it unnecessary to use different sprinkler types on the same system. Different sprinklers along one system deliver different water distribution profiles contributing to an overall inferior system performance.

For the best irrigation performance two factors are crucial, reducing the kinetic energy of the water impact onto the soil and controlling wind drift. Delivering a consistent droplet size greatly reduces the loss from wind drift of the fine droplets/mist. In addition, a controlled consistent droplet size and uniform distribution of the droplets within the sprinkler pattern reduces the impact force typical of larger droplets on the soil. These kinds of droplets can cause soil sealing which in turn reduce the soil’s water intake rate, increasing the possibility of runoff and thus keeping the water from reaching the target root zone.

Komet Automatic Motion Control

  • Komet Automatic Motion Control - 1

    In addition to the 3-dimensional rotation around the central sprinkler axis, an elastic ring with a flexible inner wall controls the motion of the deflector around its own axis. This feature greatly supports the uniform water distribution of the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) throughout the entire range of pressure and flow conditions.

  • Komet Automatic Motion Control - 2

    In low flow conditions, friction is kept to a minimum for best performance with small nozzles.

  • Komet Automatic Motion Control - 3

    With increasing flows, the outer ring gradually adapts itself to the deflector for constant performance throughout the whole nozzle range.

and Groove Configuration

    Optimized flow of water through the groove from entrance to exit.

Intensive research and testing made it possible to achieve a droplet distribution pattern that is unique in the industry.

The special groove configuration and surface design of the deflector makes sure the water is channeled and properly broken up upon exiting the grooves, dispersing into consistent water droplets over the sprinkler’s entire wetted area throughout its range of operation. The Komet Precision Twister (KPT) groove design has been highly engineered to reduce very fine droplets and misting to a minimum in order to maximize the overall system performance.

Pressure is a major factor in determining the operating cost of an irrigation system. The higher the pressure required to operate it, the higher the operating cost will be. Finding a method to limit the operating pressure requirement without sacrificing the quality of the water distribution uniformity is ideal. Upgrading the efficiency of the irrigation system can help to increase yields while reducing the operating costs.

Komet - Operating Pressure

In today’s farming world, the input costs, such as energy, are closely considered. The design of the innovative Komet Precision Twister (KPT) focuses on efficiency in operation. This precision device has excellent performance at 10 psi and 15 psi and very good performance at 6 psi. Its operating range is the most extended in the industry in this class of device.

Komet Elements with Low Inertia

Komet has designed a sprinkler that can effectively help reduce energy inputs by allowing the irrigation system to operate at lower pressure while maintaining excellent water distribution uniformity. The Komet 3-dimensional motion system reacts very responsively to minimal pressure and flow levels making the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) sprinkler work more efficiently at lower pressures than other sprinklers. There is no need for additional starting devices built into the sprinkler and therefore no risk of wear of such critical parts that could cause start-up failures.

Intensive farming practices require that every irrigation system operates reliably in order to maximize crop potential. Timing of water application is critical to the potential yield of the crop, especially during dry conditions. Therefore it is essential for growers to use only highly reliable products.

Komet - Designed for Reliable Operation

  • Komet - Designed for Reliable Operation

    The down force of the water stream is concentrated onto the 3-D bearing situated along the central axis of the sprinkler. The force diagram shows the minimal force put on the elastic ring.

We believe that reliability needs to be strongly considered in the early stages of product design. The Komet 3-D motion system concentrates the water force onto the patented 3-D bearing situated along the central axis of the sprinkler, thus putting very little stress on the sprinkler assembly. For applications where in-canopy operation is required, a crop guard is built into the main body of the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) sprinkler. The crop guard prevents the deflector from stalling, adding reliability to the sprinkler.

  • Komet - Crop guard

    A crop guard keeps the deflector rotating also in tall crops.

Komet - Smooth Operation for more Reliability

The unique configuration of the odd number of the body legs in conjunction with the even number of deflector grooves further contribute to the very smooth operation of the Komet Precision Twister (KPT). The strategic positioning of the integrated weight allows it to keep vibration levels to the lowest in this class of device and helps to keep the sprinkler steady in windy conditions. All of the above factors contribute to the outstanding reliability of the Komet Precision Twister (KPT).

Komet - Quality and Materials

The precision manufacturing of every component includes strict quality controls during every manufacturing step and the utmost care in selecting the appropriate materials. The use of shock proof and UV resistant technical polymers, special fiber reinforced and high technology parts are key elements in making the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) a sprinkler of outstanding quality and reliability for most climatic and water conditions.

Komet - Field-Proven Technology

Because reliability is so important to us, we have tested the Komet Precision Twister (KPT) sprinklers over many irrigation seasons. Test sites included a variety of terrains, soils, water conditions, crop types and climatic conditions.

It is fundamental that a pivot sprinkler adapts to different application conditions while maintaining excellent performance. The sprinkler must be able to cope with a wide range of environmental factors such as soil type, terrain, atmospheric conditions, water quality as well as different crops. For optimal irrigation the grower must have the ability to adapt to its prevailing factors

Komet - Trajectory Angles

Working closely with growers allowed us to identify and develop four different deflectors to maximize the irrigation efficiency for different application requirements.

For use on drops: Standard angle suitable for most applications, low angle for applications in windy conditions or where higher ground clearance is required without water interfering with the pivot structure and ultra-low angle for extreme conditions such as high winds, high heat and/or low flow and where it is most important to get the water to the soil.

For use on top of pipe: Low profile trajectory suitable for all applications when sprinkler installation on top of pipe is required.
