Chapin BTF Drip Tape

Growers are increasingly challenged to deliver high quality, uniform crops, while obtaining the greatest return on investments in water, labor, management and materials. Chapin Tape has helped lead the way to achieve these goals.

Chapin Tape leads the industry in providing the largest flow path, best Cv’s and greatest strength in any wall thickness of tape. As the pioneer in drip irrigation, with 50 years experience making the highest quality drip irrigation tape, Chapin has the largest selection of flow rates, wall thicknesses and inlet filtration options available today. The extraordinary reliability and performance of Chapin Tape is attested to by long term Chapin Tape users world-wide.

Product Features

Largest selection of flow rates on the market from 0.20 gpm/100 feet to 1.8 gpm/100 feet—allowing the grower to utilize the precise amount of water for every application

Largest selection of wall thickness on the market from 4 mil to 25 mil—allowing the grower to select the durability level they need for their toughest growing environment

Exceptional Run Length. 7/8″ Chapin drip tape will cover 1/4 mile run lengths while maintaining high emission uniformity—saving installation time and money by reducing the number of submains to properly deliver water

Best engineered flow path design. Larger internal dimensions in the flow path provide extraordinary resistance to clogging

Unmatched uniformity—Chapin Tape consistently supplies the lowest manufacturer’s variations (Cv) in the industry

Make the right choice for your water conditions— BTF model features multiple inlet filters. Deluxe models feature continuous inlet filtration for superior resistance to clogging

Engineered extruded profile—extra thickness where it counts. Special cast extruded film pattern with rounded sides and more material on the edges reduces insect damage, mechanical abrasion and over pressurization

Unmatched variety of fittings and accessories— Jain offers the complete tape irrigation system

Easier to retrieve from field upon season completion due to cast extruded profile


Multiple inlet orifices ensure a continuous water flow to each dripper

Turbulent flow path design provides larger internal dimensions offering higher resistance to clogging

Largest selection of flow rates

Available in 5/8″ and 7/8″ diameters

Available wall thickness 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 13, and 15 mil

Engineered extruded high quality polyethylene film ensures round sides providing higher resistance to insect bites and field abrasion

Slit design outlet will help prevent root intrusion and soil ingestion

Longer flow path ensures true drip flow—no squirts

A low emitter exponent will ensure less flow and pressure variation on steep slopes to help increase emission uniformity

Lower winding tension to ensure less retraction in the field and avoid kinking and snaking during installation

Stringent quality checks at every stage of production will help ensure a high quality product

Reinforced packaging to ensure smooth handling in the field and during transportation
