Jet pumps for wells
Water supply of country houses and garden plots confident steps goes from the category of problems in the category of issues to be resolved. Wells, buckets left in the past, and all thanks to vibration pumps domestic destinations. This compact, small size of the unit has become a real helper in matters of water supply to homes having no central water supply.
Since the middle of last century, jet pumps, appeared on the market and immediately had a competition to existing models of jet pumps for pumping water. Currently, jet pumps domestic destinations are out of competition. What caused such a success and popularity? Affordability, simplicity in operation, flexibility and mobility in the application of this is just a small list of all the virtues that have this type of jet pump.
Considering the composition of the pump to stay on these component parts are:
1. The jet pump casing. As a rule, the case is made from materials with corrosion-resistant coating. Inside the case are all the other components of the pump.
2. Electromagnet. Structurally, the electromagnet is made in the form of core and two coils are connected in series into a single circuit. The electromagnet is provided with insulation and heat dissipation.
3. Vibrator. This part of the convertible pump is separated from the electrical part of a special membrane and is exactly the structure with the aid, which is pumping water.
As you can see the technical performance of the shallow well jet pump is relatively simple, it does not contain an electric motor, complex rotary element. Due to this pump has a very small mass in the range of 4 kg, it is maintenance-free and fairly easy to repair. Due to technical idea, just to address the issue of energy conservation. The cost of electricity for the pump is negligible small.
Having examined the composition of the pump briefly on the principle of operation of the unit. As we have noted a vibrator is an element of the pump, which provides the pumping of water. We present it in place by an electromagnet. Frequency pulling armature is 100 times per second, respectively, with the same frequency jet piston in the hydraulic chamber of the vibrator. These provide the reciprocating motion of the suction process and the ejection of water. What would the water from the pump went out strongly in the discharge pipe, as part of the vibrator control valve is provided. On the compression stroke and the ejection of water, it covers the suction hole, and thus excess water sent to the discharge pipe.
Having considered the principle of the shallow well jet pump, it becomes clear prohibition of the pump to work without water. The high frequency vibrations, respectively, requires cooling pump, which provides the incoming water. Therefore, the work of the pump without cooling causes it to malfunction. Also, special attention to the operation of the pump vibration should be paid to the cable by which the pump is lowered into the well, or are assembling and mounting the shallow well jet pump. When selling jet pumps are equipped with nylon rope. Such equipment is due to precautionary measures in case of breakdown of insulation of the wire through which the pump power.
And so we met with a jet pump for domestic purposes. All of these advantages it seems, have convinced you that this is the single most correct choice. Buying a home jet pump, it is not necessary to dwell on what that one brand. Now on the market of the former Soviet Union there are about 20. They all have identical parameters and specifications.
We are offering the average consumer of vibration parameters of well jet pumps:
- Nominal pressure – 40m
- Performance 1 – 1.5 m3ch
- Power Consumption 180 – 300W
- Maximum current – 3.5 A
- The diameter of the outlet pipe – 19 mm (34 inches)
However, some structural differences still exist. This arrangement of suction holes. The most common design solution, when the suction holes located at the top. However, there are household jet pumps, in which the holes are located below. This construction is designed to pump water from a shallow reservoir, wells with low water levels. However, weaknesses such as the possibility of absorption from the bottom of impurities, poor cooling design make it less popular.
Recently, the market began to appear more and more examples of jet pumps of foreign manufacture. However, statistics show that such patterns as FloForce and Little Giant is much better and cheaper than their imported counterparts. But some China-made pumps are generally not recommended for water-supply houses. Therefore, selecting a pump for these warnings should also pay attention to.
