There's a lot of talk going around out there about different makes and models of irrigation systems - which systems last longer or are built better.
We think some of that talk might be more myth than fact. Here are some interesting facts about Reinke irrigation systems.
Let's bring the truth to light about strength
If you've heard that Reinke irrigation systems weigh less than competitive brands, we're here to tell you it's a fact. We don't dispute it at all. We learned a long time ago that strong does not have to equal weight or bulk. That's why we design and build our systems not only lighter than competitive systems, but also stronger.
The secret to this industry exclusive combination lies in innovative design and the use of superior quality, high strength materials that are low in weight. In fact, tests show that the "low alloy" high strength steel used throughout Reinke systems rates higher in yield strength than standard galvanized steel.
Stronger but lighter - we don't see a downside. With Reinke, you get an irrigation system that can stand up to the harshest conditions and yet, will tread lightly on your fields (in other words, we're less likely to be a "stick in the mud"). Less weight throughout the system means less wear-and-tear on the drive train, reduced wheel tracking, less maintenance costs, and increased system life. You also get a system that's backed by the finest dealer sales and service in the industry.
Lean and Mean
Reinke mainline pipe won't let you down, and it won't weigh your system down either. Yes, we admit it - Reinke pipe is lighter and uses a leaner wall than competitive brands. But we think you should also know that yield tests show our pipe is as much as 20% stronger than those other brands.
How can that be? It's all in the materials. Reinke pipe is made from the same type of high strength, lower weight materials used throughout our system structure. That means our pipe is lean, mean, and rock-solid.
Gauged for efficiency, durability
You might find this surprising, but there are some instances where we believe heavier is better - our span cable, for instance. The fact is, our heavy gauge cable minimizes voltage drop across the circuit and prevents damage to electrical components - extending component life and making more efficient use of energy.
Sealed for life
Because our unique V-Ring seal is secured inside metal-to-metal flanges and protected from deteriorating elements, it should never need to be replaced. The seal is watertight and does not impede water flow. The metal-to-metal connection creates strength at the joint without adding weight.
These are just a few of the Reinke advantages. Visit the Reinke website for more information www.reinke.com
