a ram pump

Postby roosstoi » Sun Jun 03, 2012 12:55 pm

I think if someone likes to work with tools without any electricity could also have fun to see a
method to bring water out of a tiny creek up for 3 meters also without any electric power.
This ram pump, made out of an old vessel of an air kompressor and of some iron pipes and round steel
runs only by the power of water running down the difference in hight of ca. 70 cm. The pumping energy comes out of the hydraulic push when fast stopping a liquid.
We reached a hight of 3 meters and an amount of 3 litres per minute. You can see the pump working at the beginning of this blog and the result at the very end.
