Abstract:
Indian agriculture is the monsoon-dependent. Frequently, water flows near the fields or from the rooftop, but there is a lack of gadgets and power to lift it to the desired place. Under such circumstances, farmers are using some manually operated or animal-drawn devices to draw the water from the river, channel or naturally impounded water to irrigate their fields in tribal and undeveloped areas. But ithasalot of limitations which will cause loss of energy and time. Therefore, to provide relief and to save energy and time for the farmers, an energy-free water lifting device that will operate 24×7 with little head available was designed and developed. The performance of the designed and developed 32 mm size energy-free water lifting device was worked out by taking 27 combinations such as three supply heads, three diameters of delivery pipes, and three diameters of supply pipes. The supply and delivery combination used for the study was 40/12. 40/16, 40/25, 50/12, 50/16 and 50/25 respectively. It was found from the study that a maximum discharge rate of 2.40lpm was found with the 40/12 mm supply/delivery combination at 2.0 m supply head under 3 m delivery head. Similarly, a maximum discharge rate of 2.07 lpm was found with the 50/12 mm supply/delivery combination at 1.5 m supply head under 2.5 m delivery head. The maximum discharge rate of 1.67 lpm was found with the 50/12 mm supply/delivery combination at 1.0 m supply head under 2.0 m delivery head. The maximum delivery head achieved at supply head of 1.0 m, 1.5 m, and 2.0 m were 3.3, 3.9 and 4.0 m respectively. It was observed that the supply and delivery pipe diameters of 50 mm, 40 mm and 12 mm, 16 mm respectively were found best amongst all the three combinations of supply pipe. From the study, it was revealed that as the delivery head increases, delivery discharge gradually decreases. It was also observed that if the size of the supply pipe increases, discharge rates also increase up toa certain extent. The designed and developed energy-free water lifting device is found helpful for farmers for lifting water without power available.
