Ram pump how it works

Dec 17, 2019 A ram pump is essentially just two one-way check valves, one called the waste valve and the other called the delivery valve. To get it started, you just momentarily open the waste valve to allow water to flow. After that it’s working on its’ own to pump the water uphill above the elevation of the source. Pretty amazing, I think. Let’s walk through the path of the water to understand how it works

In 1996, English engineer, Frederick Philip Selwyn, patented a ‘ fluid pressure amplifier ’ which revolutionized ram pump technology with a new venturi effect valve. This Venturi Valve uses the low pressure generated by high velocity water flow around a curve-shaped elastomeric valve (with low pressure loss) enabling

    Apr 01, 2000 To use a ram pump, you must have a source of water situated above the pump. For example, you must have a pond on a hillside so that you can locate the pump below the pond. You run a pipe from the pond to the pump. The pump has a valve that allows water to flow through this pipe and build up speed

    A hydraulic ram (or water ram) pump is a simple, motorless device for pumping water at low flow rates. It uses the energy of flowing water to lift water from a stream, pond, or spring to an elevated storage tank or to a discharge point. It is suitable for use where small quantities of water are required and power supplies are limited, such as for household, garden, or livestock water supply

    How It Works - Operation. Water enters the ram pump through the supply port and flows around the main valve to the exhaust port. As the flow increases around the main valve, a differential pressure occurs causing the valve to suddenly close. The flow and mass of water is then directed through the non-return valve into the delivery port at a

    An RP150 Ram pump can lift water to a maximum height of 75-100m at 5-10 meters of FALL according to Table 4. This will be adequate since the lift to the top of the storage tank is only 45m. Thus, a RP150 Ram pump would be selected. Table 3 shows that for a RP150 Ram pump, the drive pipe diameter is 1 ‰ ˛ nominal. Table 2
