Efficient irrigation is an important factor to support crop growth. A uniform water distribution helps the soil to evenly absorb the water, consequently avoiding water run-offs. This greatly promotes even plant growth throughout the field and at the same time can increase the yield and its quality. A fine water application also allows to grow sensitive crops.

Komet Automatic Brake System

Komet Automatic Brake System

This mechanism is designed to allow the gun to maintain a constant rotation speed in all arising operating conditions independently of the prevailing pressure and flow levels.

  • Komet Automatic Brake System - waiting to operate
    While waiting to operate, the brake disc of the gun rests on the lower brake pads.
  • Komet Automatic Brake System - increasing pressure
    While increasing operating pressure, the brake disc is pressed against the upper brake pads, generating a braking force.
  • Komet Automatic Brake System - high pressure
    A higher operating pressure generates a bigger braking force in order to compensate for the stronger rotational force generated by the drive system.
  • Self-adjusted brake force - ideal rotation speed at all pressures

Komet Deflector

This innovative device is capable of distributing the water uniformly, starting from the gun over its entire throw range. The technology and fluid dynamic elements designed into this component let the deflector adapt its operation to all pressure levels and upcoming changes.

The length of the throw determines the area being irrigated. A longer throw increases the area covered by the irrigation with the effect of making the irrigation more cost effective. At the same time a longer throw determines also a reduction of the instantaneous water application rate thus improving the water take-in of the soil.

Komet Fluid Dynamics

While in operation the deflector is designed to minimize the oscillation originating from the interaction with the water stream. This is fundamental in order to obtain a laminar water stream exiting the nozzle generating unrivaled throw values.

Komet Barrel

The configuration of the barrel and its internal straightening vanes has been optimized with the use of the most advanced hydraulic simulation software allowing the water to reach the nozzle with the least possible turbulences and pressure losses.

Komet Nozzle

The particular shape of the Komet nozzle, manufactured with technical polymers, allows the transition from the diameter of the barrel to the diameter defined for the irrigation with the water retaining the maximum velocity and exiting the nozzle with a perfectly round water stream to reach unrivaled throw values.

Pressure greatly determines the operating cost of an irrigation system: the higher the pressure required to operate it, the higher the operating cost will be. What makes the difference is to find a method to limit the operating pressure requirement without sacrificing the quality of the water distribution uniformity.

Komet Energy System

Due to the use of innovative materials with reduced specific weight and advanced tribological properties combined with the reciprocal calibration of the different components and respective systems, we were able to obtain the optimal performance from the automatic brake and the low inertia drive system. This allows for an efficient operation of the gun in all operating conditions including lower and variable pressure levels.

Komet Twin Ultra

Komet Balance System

The Komet Balance System is based on the interaction between the self-adjusting brake and deflector. The resulting balanced operating mode allows for an excellent performance at all pressure and flow levels. The interactive balancing between the two elements is continuous and automatic.

Return to the advantages

It is important that every irrigation system operates reliably in order to avoid yield losses, waste of energy with its associated costs but more than anything to optimize the soil potential. The gun not being continuously monitored, has to operate always at its best without the necessity of adjustments or maintenance.

bThe drive arm mechanism is made of technical polymers that ensure superior performance and excellent resistance to wear, superior to aluminum. The reduced weight of the parts allows for very good operation even at low pressures.

cThe Automatic Brake System is unique in its function due to the materials used. The internal parts are made of chemically treated stainless steel and inserted into an anodized aluminium housing to increase the resistance to corrosion and wear.

Komet Self Control

With changing operating conditions such as pressure and flow the gun self-adjusts all systems in order to allow always for an operation at best efficiency level.

Komet Design

Reliability is a main concern when designing our products. Each component is developed with the utmost care and the materials are selected to satisfy the requirements of the intended application environment.

Komet Quality

The precision tooling of every component, the strict quality control during every manufacturing step and the final water test of every single gun are our guarantee of a quality control at its best.

It is fundamental that a gun adapts to every situation while keeping excellent performance in all types of irrigation systems and environmental conditions, also extreme ones.

Komet Twin Inverter

Staying within the boundaries of your own field is important for efficient irrigation. This not only saves valuable resources that would otherwise be lost to adjacent areas, but also avoids unnecessary discussions with the neighbours. If the field borders roads or adjacent fields, it is common to start irrigation towards the traveller, and manually change the irrigation sector afterwards. This procedure can now be automated with the patented Komet Inverter.

CTimer

DInverter

The patented Komet Twin Inverter for travellers is a time-controlled device that changes the irrigation sector during operation. It allows to irrigate two completely independent sectors, which need to be set before operation. Starting from the first irrigation sector, the big volume gun automatically changes over to the second irrigation sector after a pre-set time has elapsed. If a subsequent full-circle operation is required, a full-circle adapter is available.

Komet Motion-Triggered Timer

The time for the first irrigation sector can be set to a maximum of 999 minutes. After activating the timer, it remains in standby mode for 36 hours. Within this period, the operation can be started at any time. The countdown starts as soon as water runs through the sprinkler, in other words the timer is activated by motion.

  • Komet Inverter

The Komet Twin Inverter is suitable for the following applications:

  • Application “A”

Komet Vari-Angle

The adjustment of the trajectory angle without internal flow restriction allows to adapt the irrigation to different climatic conditions including stronger winds. This capability to adjust is a real advantage also in cases where obstacles such as power lines need to be avoided.

  • Komet Vari-Angle

    The trajectory angle can be manually adjusted between 15° and 45°

Komet Dynamic Jet-Breaker

  • Komet Dynamic Jet-Breaker

The patented working principle of the dynamic jet-breaker allows to redistribute some of the excessive water from the end of the throw typical in low pressure conditions towards the gun. Another important advantage of this device is that it allows to adapt the water distribution profile to suit the requirement of solid-set systems.

Komet Transport Lock

If the big volume gun is not adequately secured while the irrigation machine is being relocated considerable damage to the gun may be caused. A suitable solution is to block the rotation of the big volume gun using the Komet Transport Lock.

aEasily installed on top of the big volume gun base, the two different settings of the Komet Transport Lock either permit or prevent the big volume gun from turning. This way it can remain installed also during operation.

Counterweight

The availability of model specific counterweights allows for smooth operation of the gun on sloping terrain as well as on steep slopes.
