Irrigation System Design with Hydraulic Tool
Simplifying irrigation design through digital innovation.
The updated Rivulis Hydraulic Tool makes it easy for irrigation designers to easily, quickly and accurately plan irrigation systems that deliver optimum performance using the extended Rivulis and NaanDan product range.

With the Hydraulic Tool you can calculate hydraulic parameters for:
Instantly retrieve the hydraulic properties of Rivulis and NaanDan products from the extensive in-built database. Easily create your lateral design, including factoring in the impact of sloping ground and lateral length required. The Hydraulic Tool automatically calculates head loss, pressure required at the start of the lateral and other parameters to create a design that delivers optimum performance.
Sub-main and mainline calculations
The calculator can determine the optimum diameter and length configurations to meet the required flow rate, while also calculating head loss and velocity. It allows you to account for variables such as sloping ground and whether the sub-main is in the middle or at the end of the field.
Evaluate an overall system
Quickly get a picture of the overall system by using the Irrigation Design component. By entering the necessary information (water emission product, irrigation area, application rate, flow rate of water source and maximum available irrigation time) Rivulis Hydraulic Tool determines if your water source is sufficient for irrigation and shows necessary adjustments for desired applications.
Determine the best sprinkler design layout for your needs.
Every Drop Counts (EDC) is an inbuilt tool that evaluates sprinkler profiles and coverage. It calculates CU and DU based on your selected Rivulis or NaanDan sprinkler and layout configuration, providing a visual representation of water application rate.
