PRINCIPLE: Reciprocating pump operates on the principle of pushing of liquid by a piston that executes a reciprocating motion in a closed fitting cylinder.
Components of reciprocating pumps:-
a) Piston or plunger: - a piston or plunger that reciprocates in a closely fitted cylinder.
b) Crank and Connecting rod: - crank and connecting rod mechanism operated by a power source. Power source gives rotary motion to crank. With the help of connecting rod we translate reciprocating motion to piston in the cylinder.
c) Suction pipe: - one end of suction pipe remains dip in the liquid and other end attached to the inlet of the cylinder.
d) Delivery pipe: - one end of delivery pipe attached with delivery part and other end at discharge point.
e) Suction and Delivery value: - suction and delivery values are provided at the suction end and delivery end respectively. These values are non-return values.
Pump : Double acting reciprocating pump of size 25 x 20mm with air vessel to discharge about 20LPM at 20 meters total head.
Motor : 1Hp, 1400RPM, Single phase, 200/220V, AC supply.
Speed Variation : Stepped pulley reduction "V" belt drive to run the pump at 3 different speeds.
Electrical Panel : Switch and Energy meter for the measurement of power input.
Sump Tank : M.S. Powder Coating/M.S. FRP Lining/S.S Unit of suitable size to store sufficient water for independent circulation through the unit.
Measuring Tank : M.S. Powder Coating/M.S.FRP Lining/S.S Unit suitable size capacity provided with standard fittings for measuring discharge of water.
Others : Piping system consisting of Pipes, Pressure relief valve, Gate valve and fitting with Pressure gauge.
