History

In a surface irrigation distribution network it is necessary to establish a command from which water may be discharged to the area where it will be applied to growing crops. Regulation of discharge, its distribution and disposal is carried out using a range of control structures selected to suit particular situations.

In order to familiarise technicians with the mode of operation of a variety of control structures, Armfield has designed and produced a range of demonstration units.
