ST Pivot Sector
The angular-sector pivot involves an automatic inversion of the spans at the end of the parcel.
It enables to cover an irrigated area despite a fragmented parcel.
The pivot point is the center of the irrigated circle. Its function is to keep the span in the parcel center. Hence, it must withstand two main forces: a traction force of the moving spans and the weight of the first span. Besides the single resistance of each element of the pivot point, the global structural resistance of the assembly is essential. For this reason, Otech uses S275 top-quality steel and a NF EN ISO 1461 galvanisation to get a tried and tested structure, composed of an electric management system in compliance with the NF EN909 February 2009 + A1.
As standard, coupling with the first IP233 anti-UV watertight, span relieve pressures on the upper elbow for tough grounds. Galvanised steel coupler to protect two low-pressure lip seals against environmental threats (UV, sandstorms, etc.).
