Design Process

Zwart Systems will present your company with options on how to best achieve your production goals. Our product specialists will work with you through all phases of the project development process.

  • Conceptual Drawings

    Every Zwart Irrigation System begins with conceptual drawings. Drawings are typically hand sketched during client meetings to get a snapshot of the project overview and its  potential.

  • Estimate Preparation

    Our system designer will review flow rates, system pressure requirements, and specific details that are customized to each individual  farm.

    These details assist in generating  estimates for customers to review. The design and quoting process typically requires a few revisions before the final package and price is presented to the client for review approval. 

    Upon client approval, project development is  initiated. 

  • Process and Instrumentation Drawing

    The first drawing developed is a process and instrumentation drawing. This drawing is essential for all trades to review.

    It assists in understanding the control points for the environmental computer, the power loads requirements for the electricians, and the system flow pattern so that the grower has a complete understanding of how the system operates.

  • CAD Drawings

    Once the process drawing receives approval, the design team can proceed with  the complete CAD drawings for the project.  

    CAD drawings include complete irrigation room drawings, distribution piping, and zone plumbing details. At the completion of a project all drawings and manuals are submitted to the customer for their facility records. 

  • 2D Drawings

    Although Zwart Systems can prepare complete 3D design packages for every job, in many cases it is not required. For simple installations, a 2D line drawing is all that is necessary.

  • Zwart Systems flood floors are ideal for plant lay down using either robots or forklifts, and the concrete is a consistent surface for the crops. Coupled with an overhead boom and automated basket systems, the floor return system allows us to capture all of the excess water and filter it for reuse just as the floors do themselves. The return water system being filtered helps keep the floors clean and free of debris. We have connected the floors to our greenhouse environment control system which allows us to run them in an automated fashion. Zwart Systems flood floors are our preference to any other floors. We would not keep installing them if the growers and ownership did not see benefits regarding crop consistency and quality.
