The game must go on.
Nelson Big Gun sprinklers are ideal for sports field irrigation and sports turf cooling and cleaning. With a full range of models, flow rates of 30-1200 GPM (6.8-275 m3/hr) can be achieved with maximum uniformity to match a variety of field sizes.
There are several ways to install Big Gun sprinklers in sports field applications.
The QC Valve system is beneficial because it keeps sprinklers off the field where they may cause injuries. The quick-coupling key makes attaching the sprinkler to the valve effortless and it can be done on a pressurized system. Connecting the hydraulic assist smoothly opens the valve and starts the flow of water. Disconnection and moving the gun to the next valve location is just as quick and easy.
The system can also be equipped for automated or semi-automated operation to reduce time and labor. Wireless, battery operated controls like the Nelson TWIG wireless control system can be configured on the Big Gun Quick Coupling arrangement to automate watering times or remotely actuate individual sprinklers. Ideal applications include hard-to-reach areas such as parks, cemeteries, athletic fields and other spots where it is not practical or economical to install a hard-wired controller.
