Otech originates from the south-west of France, where trying conditions will test any machine, and which has highly influenced the Otech Centre Pivot design to guarantee operation reliability and long life – making it a sure investment.
|Due to the coastal environment, it was a priority for Otech to select a hard wearing steel for the spans, capable of withstanding the sand abrasion channelled by the water. High tensile steel with a high carbon content provides hardness, and ensures a longer life than mild steel which is commonly used in the industry. The structure has been designed to withstand high winds of up to 140km/h, and to operate on undulating terrain up to 20 degrees elevation from one tower
to the next.
Center Pivot Irrigation Design
The Otech Electric Drive Centre Pivot is proven to be more cost effective to run than an oil hydraulic driven alternative, and also more respectful to the environment avoiding serious oil leaks or spills in the middle of a paddock.
|Otech span pipes are available in a multitude of lengths ranging from 32 to 62 metres.
With a range of 5 different span pipe diameters (from 5″ to 10″), Otech Centre Pivots are professionally custom designed for each application to be a low pressure irrigation system (down to 7 psi at the sprinkler head), reducing your pumping costs.
Otech componentry has been cleverly designed and standardised resulting in limited maintenance, saving you labour, and if required spare parts are very easy to source. The Otech Centre Pivot is available in low, standard and high clearance to suit your crop and application.
How Does Center Pivot Irrigation Work
But most importantly, Otech Centre Pivots are simple and easy to use. At the flick of a switch your machine will do the work for you, saving you labour and time. A control panel with synoptic view, LED lights and icons show the current operational settings of the machine. The tele-mechanic control components have been field tested for 50 million contacts in the harshest climate, and adhere to the strict Australian electrical standards.
As an upgrade from the standard control panel, the Dositech can offer you position and sectoral control, along with remote management control.
Otech Centre Pivots are fitted with the best sprinkler packages of the industry (Nelson and Senninger), to match your soil and crop requirements, and to guarantee a high watering uniformity of up to 98%. Otech Centre Pivots will save you water, and increase your yield.
