Toro has announced the availability of Australian-made Aqua-Traxx PBX drip tape, building on recent expansion and investment in the Toro manufacturing facility in Beverley, South Australia.

Toro Aqua-Traxx PBX is a seamless extruded tube, with emitters integrated within the tube to allow for adding more slits, enabling closer spacing without the need for additional emitters.

This system allows growers to choose an outlet spacing from 10 to 90cm depending on their desired wetting pattern without facing additional cost.

This drip tape is available in a 5mm wall thickness, as well as a range of applications for tougher applications, including 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm and 15mm.

There are nine emitter flow rates available in the full family of Aqua-Traxx PBX products, producing total flow rates ranging from 65Lph per 100 metres to 1975Lph/100m.
