As a farmer, irrigator, or business who relies on turbine pumps for your operations, it can be challenging to find equipment designed to meet your specific needs. When it comes to keeping your pumps consistently and reliably well-lubricated, a lot of the standard resources come up short.
That’s why anyone using deep well turbine pumps should take advantage of the Drip-Well System, a product designed for farmers by farmers. Drip-Well takes the unique demands of turbine pump users into account to provide long lasting and dependable oiling solutions.
Here are just a few of the ways farmers and irrigators can benefit from using Drip-Well:
Drip-Well will save you time and money.
Inadequate oiling is the primary contributing factor to turbine pump failure. That’s why it is crucial for those in the agricultural industry who rely on them to ensure their pumps are always properly lubricated, in order to keep them working efficiently and prevent costly damage.
With most oiling systems, this means constant trips to the field to check on oil levels and remembering to manually turn them on and off with your pump. With the Drip-Well system, however, this time and labor is no longer necessary. Drip-Well functions automatically based on water pressure, shutting off with your turbine pump to prevent excess oil build up and turning on with it to maintain adequate lubrication.
Not only will this save you time and energy, but it will save you money as well. The Drip-Well system is inexpensive to install and, because it minimizes excess oil, makes the most out of every dollar you spend on your oil supply.
The Drip-Well system is designed for long-term operation.
The large oil reservoir in this automatic system can hold enough oil to keep your pumps well-lubricated for an entire irrigation season. In comparison, standard equipment holds only enough to last you a few days! Our large poly tanks are available in three different sizes—4, 7, and 11 gallons—based on the needs of your farm or company.
If you forget to refill the oil in a typical size tank, you risk causing damage to the bearings in your pumps. With this system, you can feel confident that your pumps will never run dry and preserve their high quality for years to come.
Keep your oil pure using the Drip-Well system.
Most standard lubrication systems draw oil from the bottom of the reservoir, where rust, sediment, and condensation accumulate and decrease the quality of the oil. The innovative Drip-Well system, however, draws oil from the side of the tank.
The cone-shaped bottom of the Drip-Well reservoir collects the impurities that can pollute your oil supply and plug the needle valve. This means your pumps are always being lubricated with the best-quality oil, which is better for your equipment and saves you money in the long run.
Drip-Well helps you maintain a clean and healthy water supply.
Standard lubrication systems draw oil continuously, which can lead to excess buildup that leaks into your water supply. By limiting a surplus of dripping oil, Drip-Well lowers the chances for water contamination and oil leakage. This leaves you with more usable water and less waste—results that are better for your business and the environment.
For over 26 years, the Drip-Well System has been making the work of turbine pump users easier, more efficient, and less expensive. Prevent the leading cause of pump failure when you invest in equipment that guarantees your pumps are always well-lubricated and functioning properly.
