Modern agriculture faces many challenges: On the one hand, it must increase its productivity, and on the other hand, sustainability must be a guiding principle. Since 1918 Dorstener Drahtwerke has been a manufacturer of top-class drawn wire, wire cloth, and welded mesh. We develop resilient, functional wire cloth & welded wire mesh solutions for agriculture.

We support our customers with our broad product range, whether filters for irrigation systems, bee grids, or growing trays for hydroponics. Please feel free to contact us!

Filtration of irrigation systems

Water Filtration is a vital part of irrigation systems. The number one cause of irrigation system breakdowns is the tiny particles found in even clean appearing water. Irrigation System filtration will pay for itself many times in savings on repairs.

The most common problem with irrigation systems without a filter is sprinkler heads getting plugged with sediment, like sand, silt, debris, and organic matter. Even the smallest particles of sand, dirt, or organic matter can plug up a sprinkler head and then cause a dry or dead spot in the turf or field. The second problem is that sediment will eventually damage the components of the irrigation system.

Dorstener produces a wide range of sintered and non-sintered filter elements for all types of commercial irrigation systems in the irrigation filtration market.

  • Irrigation filter elements made from 316L stainless steel
  • High flow irrigation filters
  • Custom designed irrigation filters
  • From 5 micron to 1500 micron
