FRESNO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Netafim USA, the leading provider of innovative drip irrigation solutions for landscape and agriculture applications, announced today that its industry-leading Techline HCVXR landscape dripline has won the 2016 Irrigation Show People’s Choice Award in the Landscape Irrigation category of the New Product Contest. The People's Choice award, given annually since 2012, recognizes the most innovative products released in the last 12 months and is voted on by attendees at the Irrigation Association Show and Education Conference, which was held this year in Las Vegas from December 5-8, 2016.
The latest addition to the best-selling line of landscape dripline, Netafim’s Techline HCVXR is the only landscape dripline that infuses Cupron® copper oxide directly into the mold of each emitter to provide a long lasting root barrier for subsurface drip irrigation systems. By embedding copper oxide into the material used to create each emitter during the manufacturing process, the dripline’s root resistant properties will not wash off or migrate out of the emitter after years of use.
"We're delighted to be recognized by the Irrigation Association and industry colleagues for HCVXR, as it sets a new standard for innovation with its unparalleled features, functions, and attributes, many of which are found in Netafim's agricultural-grade driplines," said Mauricio Troche, Director of Sales and Marketing for Netafim USA's Landscape Division.
"The result is a solution that professionals and end-users can trust to endure the challenges of today's diverse and dynamic landscapes," added Troche.
The only dripline with a 15-year warranty against root intrusion, the HCVXR emitters are engineered with a physical root barrier, extra large bath area, continuous self-flushing mechanisms and raised outlets to prevent fine feeder roots or sediment from inhibiting water flow in the dripline.
Techline HCVXR also features a high check valve to ensure that each emitter turns on and off at the same time, maximizing application uniformity and holding back up to 8.5’ of water when installed on sloping landscapes. Each emitter is also equipped with a built-in anti-siphon feature that seals the emitter outlet during system shutdown, preventing debris from entering the dripline after irrigation. Available in four different flow rates to accommodate any application, Techline HCVXR is pressure-compensating, flexible and UV-resistant, and laser-etched for easy identification of model, flow rate and emitter spacing.
