Field Drainage Mains
The sizing and maintenance of agriculture mains is crucial for the performance of drainage systems. No matter how many acres need to be drained, ADS has a product to fit your specific installation needs. For agriculture mains, we offer both perforated and solid single wall corrugated pipe in sizes up to 24” (600mm). Maxi coils of large diameter pipe are available in sizes up to 12” (300mm). A maxi coil of 12” (300mm) pipe contains 330’ (100m), 10” (254mm) contains 520’ (158m), and 8” (203mm) contains 820’ (250m). The smooth interior of N-12® HDPE drainage pipe reduces friction, allowing water to flow smoothly, while its corrugated exterior allows for superior strength beneath farm equipment.
N-12 pipe is manufactured with integral bell couplers or plain end pipe with split couplers to make installation simple. N-12 pipe meets the standards of ASTM 2648, AASHTO M252 or AASHTO M294 depending on product type and diameter. For installation information, please refer to ADS IG1.03 and Plastic Pipe Institute TN-37/2006. ADS manufactures tees for all sizes of pipe that make it easy to connect the submains and laterals to the main line—saving time and money. Also available are 4” tap tees that allow the lateral to be connected to the agriculture main by drilling a hole and then inserting the tap tee.
Field drainage mains can also be used for culverts, grain aeration and animal feed operations for waste removal.
