Irrigation Systems

Irrigation is an energy-intensive farming operation. Due to the substantial rise in the cost of gasoline and diesel in recent years, growers are exploring alternative fuels and taking steps to upgrade the overall efficiency of their irrigation systems.

A portable LP Gas engine is a convenient and economical way todrive irrigation pumps. These engines can also be disconnected from the pump and used for other power
needs such as generating electricity, powering mechanical grinding mills, and driving various types of manufacturing equipment.
Advanced propane-fuelled stationary irrigation engines offer increased efficiency and reliability with reduced maintenance requirements. 
 

Features

Supplied from manufacturers to meet various specifications.

Benefits

  • New research by the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC) shows that farmers who switched to new propane irrigation engines reduced fuel consumption per hour by 43 percent and lowered overall fuel costs per hour by 75 percent.
  • In addition, using propane frees farmers from the task of transporting the fuel while eliminating diesel thievery in isolated locations.
  • LPG produces 24 percent fewer emissions, on average than comparable gasoline irrigation engines and 11 percent fewer GHG emissions than diesel engines.
  • It reduces maintenance costs by decreasing deposits on engine components and thus extending engine life.
  • It ensures reliable irrigation without grid-related power interruptions.
  • EPA and CARB Certified.
