Drippers are used in a wide variety of applications, from irrigation to the mining industry. The basic concept is to pump water through a set of tubes, feeding the drippers. The drippers control the flow of water by forcing the water through a complex labyrinth, which reduces the pressure and controls the flow of water.
With the increased use of pressure compensating drippers, orifice diameters are often 80 micron (0.0035 inch) or less. With an opening this size, it is easy to see how the dripper can become clogged unless the water is properly filtered.
