- ... Microirrigation is an irrigation technology with high potential water use efficiency. For preventing emitter clogging, which reduces the uniformity and can lead to inoperability of microirrigation systems, filtration is mandatory. Sand media filters are broadly used to protect microirrigation systems, but their manufacturer’s pressure requirements for backwashing are high and contribute to energy ...
