Toro has released the latest update to its AquaFlow drip irrigation design software, AquaFlow 4.0.
The design software can now be used online, and the program format includes expandable panels that automatically adjust to multiple screen and font sizes.
For example, pull-down menus allow users to create new Customers and Projects, as well as select program features such as Mainline Design, Custom Laterals and Pipes, Options, Common Formulas and Help.
Additionally, lateral quantity per block, number of laterals per block, submain and mainline irrigation travel time and submain velocity vs. distance are reported as well.
AquaFlow supports Toro’s Aqua-Traxx and Aqua-Traxx PC premium drip tape, Neptune flat emitter dripline, as well as BlueLine Classic and BlueLine PC premium dripline laterals.
In addition, multiple pipeline choices include Toro Oval Hose, Toro Layflat and PVC pipe. As in previous versions, multiple-slopes can still be entered for laterals, submains, and mainlines; and submains and mainlines may be telescoped with multiple pipe sizes.
Users can also compare between two lateral choices via both data and a Uniformity Map.
AquaFlow designs can be saved, exported and imported, as well as be printed or saved to a PDF. Additionally, users can select from English or Spanish languages, and Standard or Metric units.
Offline usage will still be supported if the program is downloaded, and a user manual is available in both English and Spanish.
