Irrigation Water pumps
All irrigation water pumps are drive irrigation water under higher pressure. Grekkon Limited categorizes has these categories for them; by role, by placement and by power.
Categorization by role
High pressure pumps. These are water pumps with a head that exceeds 50M. The definition of head is how high that pump will push water vertically at a ninety degrees angle. They push water at high elevations or from a deep source such as a borehole or underground tank. There are high pressure, low water volume pumps and high pressure, high water volume variations.
The latter are the most expensive, be they generator, solar or electric powered.
Low pressure pumps. These are water pumps with a head that is below 50M. Here, there are low pressure, low water volume pumps and low pressure, high water volume ones. Low pressure pumps are the least expensive. They are deliver water over short elevations or as booster pumps- to provide additional pressure. Booster pumps are electric
Surface pumps. All generator pumps (petrol and diesel) are surface pumps. They work out of the water during operation. We have solar powered and electric powered surface pumps. They pump water in all directions; vertically, horizontally and diagonally
Submersible pumps. These work in the water during operation. They pump water vertically from a well, borehole, reservoir, lake, river or from an underground tank. All have stainless steel plates and are either solar or electric powered.
Solar pumps. They use energy from the sun converted into an electric current. This energy is provided by solar panels. The number of solar panels to use depends on the amount of power required by the pump.
Electric pumps. They use electric power from the grid. We have single phase and 3 phase pumps. The former will work with a single phase electric setting, and the latter will only work with a 3 phase electric setting.
