ORBIT IRRIGATION PRODUCTS, INC. INTRODUCES NEXT GENERATION IN THE FLEXIBLE PIPE IRRIGATION MARKET
Revolutionary Blu-Lock™ Technology Achieves Significant
Breakthrough in Underground Watering Systems
North Salt Lake, UT. March 1, 2004.
Orbit Irrigation Products, Inc., a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of irrigation and misting products for the commercial and residential markets, announced today the launch of Blu-Lock™ technology and systems, designed to make installation of often-complicated irrigation products a snap for the irrigation professional. Blu-Lock™ uses a revolutionary stainless steel retaining ring that grips the flexible pipe from the outside, adding a stronger and easier-to-install fitting that improves flexible pipe irrigation.
By eliminating the hand-straining, time-consuming installation of traditional barb fittings, Blu-Lock™ reduces labor costs by as much as 80 percent in timesaving. Compared to conventional fittings, Blu-Lock™ is up to 26 percent stronger with the capacity to increase flow rate as high as 25 percent. Primary applications include the construction of swing-joints and lateral sprinkler lines as well as the installation of additional sprinkler heads.
"With its innovative design and multiple advantages of increased strength, flow rate, reduced labor costs, ease-of-assembly, ease-of-use and flexibility, Blu-Lock™ marks a significant breakthrough in underground watering systems," noted Orbit President K.C. Ericksen. "We know this industry. Blu-Lock™ highlights Orbit's leadership as a pioneering innovator creating new frontiers for the irrigation industry."
