Netafim unveils Techline HCVXR

TLHCVXR_Coil_and_Dripper_ImageNetafim USA expanded its Techline landscape dripline product catalogue with the addition of Techline HCVXR, featuring built-in root intrusion protection technology.

Netafim’s Techline HCVXR infuses Cupron copper oxide directly into the mold of each emitter to provide a chemical-free, nontoxic root barrier for subsurface drip irrigation systems, the manufacturer said. Available in four flow rates and with a 15-year warranty against root intrusion, the HCVXR’s 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.

“Up until now, the industry standard has been to either use chemicals or a small copper chip at the entry point of each emitter as a defense against aggressive roots,” said Mauricio Troche, director of sales and marketing for Netafim USA’s Landscape Division. “But, chemicals are toxic, and the copper chips inevitably corrode and leach into the soil, leaving the emitters completely unprotected from root intrusion. The infusion of Cupron copper oxide into the mold of the emitter combined with the existing physical root barriers provides the industry’s best protection against root intrusion, while at the same time eliminating any risk to plants, soil or wildlife from chemicals or leached toxins.”

In addition, Techline HCVXR features a high check valve to ensure each emitter turns on and off at the same time, holding back up to 8.5’ of water when installed on sloping landscapes. Each emitter also is equipped with a built-in anti-siphon feature that seals the emitter outlet during system shutdown, preventing debris from entering the dripline after irrigation.
