Abstract:

Pumping system powered by kinetic energy of water from nearby nallah can be a cheap, efficient and precise way of delivering water to nearby farm pond/open well. The pumping system is simple to develop, install, operate and very much cater to the need of rural remote area. It may be suitable for un-electrified as well as unreliable electric supply area provided suitable site conditions are available. The major components of spiral tube water wheel pumping system include rim, inlet valve, housing, flexible pipe, bearing, T-joint etc. The spiral type water wheel pumping system (STWWPS) was developed and tested. Water enters from the inlet into the spiral tube, which is under rotation because of the kinetic energy of flowing water. The water reaches to the centre of housing then the succeeding water pushes the preceding to go ahead and the water comes out from the housing, which is delivered towards the outlet. Under the operating condition of 0.30 to 0.46 m of water depth with flow velocity of 0.41 ms-1 to 0.54 ms-1and carrying distance of 1 m to 20 m, the discharge of 180 to 270lphwas obtained.
