uPVC Column Pipes
High Impact, High Tensile uPVC Column Pipes for Submersible Pumps.
ABOUT uPVC COLUMN PIPES
Magnum Pumps vast experience & successful track record in pump industry spanning 23 years facilitate not only to enhance the range of pumps & motors, but also to produce and supply quality pumping accessories. uPVC pipes are one among such accessories produced with specially designed formulation under integrated quality control systems, right from sourcing raw materials. Also adequate safety factors has been considered in designing the pipes to have maximum weight carrying capacity.
These pipes are specially designed for submersible pumps, capable of handling both internal hydro static pressure as well as high tensile load caused by the pump weight & column water pressure and weight . In general the first pipe fitted with the pump will be subjected to high hydro static pressure and the top most one has to withstand the entire weight of the column water & pump.
The unique formulation used in the manufacture of these borehole pipes ensures that the threads do not turn brittle, break or chip during the entire life cycle. The threading & dimension standards maintained make these pipes ideally suitable for using as column borehole pipes for submersible pumps worldwide. These pipes are produced in difference types which can be selected according to the installation requirements.
SELECTION OF BOREHOLE PIPES
The column pipes must be selected from the types available, so that the pump delivery pressure does not exceed the permissible hydrostatic pressure. In the column, for every 10m above the pump, there is a pressure drop of 1 kg/cm². If the pump delivery pressure is high, two different class pipes of the same size can be used, instead of using same type of pipes alone for the entire depth, to make it cost effective. Heavy type pipes can be used up to required length starting from pump and medium plus / standard type pipes can be used for the remaining length. An illustration is given below.
As per above illustration 40m of Heavy class pipes must be used starting from the pump, even for the lower depth installations since the pump delivery pressure is 24kg/cm². While selecting the pipe it must be ensured that the total load is very well within the recommended ultimate breaking load.
