Know the Benefits and Drawbacks of Pump & Pumping Systems

Table of Contents

A pump is a tool that moves liquid, especially water from underground storage or subsurface reserves to upper levels, surfaces, or even from one location to another. The pumps are widely used by Indian households and multinational companies for their daily use. But do you all know that there are various benefits and drawbacks of the pump and pumping system? Yes, this is true! Stay connected with us in this blog to know more about all the benefits and drawbacks of installing these pumps for your use. We will also guide you through various varieties of pumps and their specific uses. 

According to Arizton, the market size of pumps in India was USD 2.2 billion in the year 2020 and it is expected to increase up to 3.6 billion in the year 2026. The installation of these many pumps is maximum in the agriculture sector followed by industries and then households. But a many few of these owners have the knowledge of what kind of pump needs to be installed for what specific purpose. This is the reason we are here to clear your doubts on the same. 

Types of Pumps

The working of a pump is not very complex. A rotational and revolving system is used to power pumps, and this mechanism uses energy to move fluid from one location to another mechanically. It can be powered by a variety of renewable energy sources, including power, an engine, wind power, solar energy, etc. Depending on this there are various types of pumps. You can know about these different types and the benefits and drawbacks of pumps separately.

Submersible Pumps

Most household water wells in India and other financially prosperous nations have submersible pumps built. In domestic water wells, the pump combination drops and water is pumped through pipes to the surface or just beyond the freezing point. For use in the home, this water is typically piped to a pressure tank. Typically, electricity from the grid is used for running the submerged pump’s motor.

Lift Pumps

Lift pumps, also known as sucker-rod pumps, are typically controlled manually. These pumps function by sucking water out of a cylinder beneath the well’s fixed water level. A piston and a safety valve are present in the cylinder. Through a series of rods, a handle at the top is mechanically linked to the piston. The water is pumped by the piston as the handle is raised and lowered to the pump head at the surface through a network of pipelines.

Jet Pumps

The venturi effect is used by jet pumps to draw water from wells. There is a tiny centrifugal pump beside the well. A venturi nozzle in the pump suction line receives some of the liquid that was originally propelled by the centrifugal pump. Hence, water from the well is drawn out of the nozzle by creating a vacuum in the line of suction.

Suction Pumps

Suction pumps work similarly to jet pumps in that the pumping motion occurs outside the well, at the surface. Since they feature a handle that is raised and lowered to pump water, suction pumps typically resemble hand-operated lift pumps. However, in contrast to a lift pump, the piston is placed right beneath the handle. A vacuum produced by this piston draws water from the well to the pump head. Therefore, only shallow wells are suitable for these pumps.

Solar Pumps

In contrast to water pumps that are driven by grid electricity or diesel fuel, solar-powered pumps run on electricity produced by photovoltaic panels or the radiated thermal energy from captured sunshine. In comparison to pumps driven by internal combustion engines (ICEs), the operation of powered-by sunlight pumps is more cost-effective, primarily because of lower operating and maintenance expenses.

Benefits of Pump & Pumping System

If you are thinking of buying a new pump or replacing an old one, you must know about the benefits & drawbacks of the pumps. It will help you in deciding which pump to choose that will be suitable for your work. So, here are some of the benefits of the pumps that will help you in deciding what are the reasons to buy a pump. 

Increased Efficiency: By lowering the energy needed to transfer fluids, pumps can contribute to a system’s increased efficiency.

Enhanced Safety: Pumps can be utilized to transport harmful or hazardous substances, lowering the risk of worker exposure.

Productivity Gains: Pumps make it possible to transfer fluids fast and effectively, which can help to enhance productivity.

Cost Saving: Pumps can assist in cutting expenses by minimizing the demand for manual labor and lowering waste generation.

Drawbacks of Pumps & Pumping System 

As far as we have known the benefits of installing a pump we must also know the drawbacks of installing the pump that will help you to avoid the mistakes that most people do. So, here are some of the most common drawbacks of pumps. 

High Initial Cost: Purchasing and installing pumps can be expensive, particularly in large-scale applications.

Maintenance: To keep pumps operating effectively, they need to receive periodic upkeep. Therefore, maintenance of the pump is costly and difficult to regularise. 

Energy Consumption: Pumps have a high potential for energy consumption, which might result in expensive operational expenses.

Noise: Pumps can generate a lot of noise, which can be annoying to adjacent households and employees.
