Linears

Valley linear machines are a highly efficient form of irrigation designed to irrigate up to 98% of your square or rectangular field by tracking back and forth as opposed to around a centre point. The increased coverage results in maximum yields for our growers and farmers and offers choices to fit your farm and needs.

The Valley Rainger Linear

This is Valley’s premier linear irrigator suited to larger fields with versatile water sources. It is a one cart platform with two water feed options either ditch or hose and fully customisable to your needs.

It has a high flow capability, on board tanks for chemigation and a swing around option to rotate 180 degrees on the cart to irrigate those odd shaped fields.

Two Wheel Linear

A great all round irrigation solution for smaller fields with the options for either ditch or hose water sources and the versatility of being a standard linear, swing around or towable irrigator.

Universal Linear

Designed for swing around applications, the Valley Universal can automatically switch between linear and pivot modes allowing increased irrigation of your crop. A highly versatile machine suited to smaller fields and also offers towing capabilities.

Corners, Benders & Dropspan

Get the most out of your field with the use of Valley Corners, Benders and Dropspan when an existing structure or trees are in the way!

Valley Corners

From the affordable simple stop start controls of the VFlex Corner, it offers the most features and options in the market today to fully customise your growing needs!

Moving to the high tech Valley Precision Corner, this provides extreme precision where every last inch counts, even the corners!

Valley Benders

Valley Benders are designed as an inexpensive add on to your existing or new centre pivot to gain those extra acres of crop irrigation.

How does it work?

Firstly, two barriers are put into place either side of the area you want to ‘wrap around’. When the pivot reaches the first barrier, the pivot stops while the bending tower keeps irrigating until it reaches the second barrier. It auto reverses until in line with the stopped portion of pivot and then resumes its normal pivot irrigation path.

  • Bender30:
    • Automatically bends up to 30 degrees in either or both directions
    • Multiple bender units can be added using existing structural components
    • Available on Model 8120 Centre Pivots with span dimensions of 168, 219, 254mm and Polyspan.
  • Bender160
    • Bends up to 160 degrees in either or both directions
    • Multiple bender units can be added with custom structural components
    • Available on Model 8120 Centre Pivots with 168mm span dimensions.

Valley Dropspan

A flexible solution for irrigating around obstructions, the Valley Dropspan literally drops the outer spans to continue irrigating.

How does it work?

Two barriers are installed at either side of the obstruction. When the pivot reaches the first barrier the machine will stop for you to detach the towers with Dropspan before the rest of the pivot continues to irrigate until it reaches the second barrier. It auto reverses until in line with the ‘dropped’ spans ready for reattachment before continuing on its normal irrigation path.

Can be detached and reattached in under 15 minutes by one person without the need for tools!

Stop switch automatically aligns machine with dropped spans for fast and simple reattachment.

Control Technology

Giving you full control and peace of mind, the new Valley ICON Smart Panels eliminate unnecessary checks with information available right at your fingertips. Whether your investing in a new pivot, upgrading your existing panel or from another brand, we have the right control for you!

All ICON Smart Panels are Base Station 3, AgSense and Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) compatible.

Base Station 3 is the most advanced irrigation control and management tool. Your irrigation equipment is remotely managed from a computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone using a combination of technologies available.

Ag Sense now comes built in with every Valley ICON Smart Panel. It is a real time remote irrigation and farm management solution that monitors and controls irrigation equipment. It captures data, aggregates it and sends it back to you in information you can actually use!

Standard with ICON, Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI) is ideal for areas under irrigation with varying soil types and topography. This allows customisation of water application depth through:

  • VRI speed control – Speeds up / slows down the pivot allowed every 2 degrees
  • VRI zone control – On / off control for specific areas and adjusting sprinkler control valve pulse rates.

Just another of Valley’s advanced technology offering is GPS Solutions. GPS Positioning allows you to accurately pinpoint where your linear or centre pivot is located at all times. GPS Guidance is used to accurately steer your linear and corner spans hassle free.

Pumping

Home & Garden

Each pump has its own unique features, that’s why there are a couple of considerations to be made before selecting your pump!

Application: What is it being used for? Household water supply, boosting pressure, irrigation, drainage or water transfer.

Water Source: The style pump you require is determined by the water source. A water tank (above or below ground), bore or dam.

Power Supply: Is single or three phase power available?

Calculating flow rate for your consumption / use: Calculating pressure to allow for height differences, pressure already available, friction loss and pressure required for its intended use.

Please Enquire and let us do the hard work for you in selecting the right pump for your house and garden needs!

Irrigation & Agriculture

This forms part of Watertorque’s core capability, providing irrigation and water solutions for agricultural use. Modern agriculture is focused on efficiency with new pumping technology and techniques required to boost productivity, reduce energy costs and protect our water resource all at the same time.

No one project is ever alike and requires careful analysis of all contributing factors to determine the right pump for your growing needs. Key factors we consider when pumping for irrigation and agricultural applications:

  • Achieving performance requirements with maximum efficiency
  • Energy efficient solutions for long term cost effictiveness
  • Sufficient and reliable supply of water.
  • Safe and precise chemigation and fertigation when dosing.
  • Water management.

Solar Pumps

There is a growing and key demand for Solar pumping in Australia for very good reason. It is a clean, reliable and cost efficient solution to transfer water.

Grundfos solar pumps run on less energy input, allowing it to start earlier, run later and produce more water on cloudy days. Their control box includes generator back up capability as standard and the RSI large solar system inverter converts to 3 phase energy for larger pumping requirements.

Grundfos solar pumps are the market leader and well known for their reliability on stations and farms across Australia.

We offer a full range of solar array and performance options depending on your specifications and needs. Enquire Now!

Pump Servicing

At Watertorque, we service all model pumps including filtration, fertigation and chemigation systems to ensure they are operating to their full potential. We are also able to measure the performance of your bore with our test flow equipment, can produce a full report of your bores capability and offer water testing to determine the quality of water it is producing.

Solar Pumps - Yakka Munga Station

Watertorque recently designed and installed the Grundfos solar pumping solutions for Yakka Munga station located between Broome and Derby north west of Western Australia.

The initial installation included 3 new Grundfos SQF solar pump stations as well as ten 90kl Pioneer Water Tanks to supply various water points on the station.

Thank you to the team at Yakka Munga for your hospitality!

Pivot Irrigation - Pardoo Station

The Watertorque team has been servicing centre pivots at Pardoo station 120 km north of port hedland.

The overhaul on two of the original pivots has given them a new lease on life: servicing the gear boxes, repositioning and rewiring power packs, solenoid valve servicing, replaced drop hoses and installing flushing lines.

It is great to be involved in Pardoo’s pivot program and greatly appreciated the hospitality provided. Thank you all!
