india Mark III hand pumpINDIA MARK III VLOM deep well hand pump design uses and open top cylinder, which allows servicing and replacing the cylindrical components without taking out riser pipes from a bore well. Use of VLOM pump thus reduces requirements of heavy tools, skilled hands and time required for breakfast down repair. Since the cylinder can be serviced using simple tools, users including women can be trained for the repairs. Hence the pump is naked as Village Level Operator.

extra deep wellThe main feature of the hand pump is the open top cylinder Monolithic piston and check valves Interchangeable Nitride bobbin Nitride cup washers. Development of the India Mark III Hand Pump arose out of the community-level experiences of those who produced, installed, and distributed the India Mark II pumps. It was developed in response to the technological problems presented by non-VLOM pumps. The India Mark III Water Hand pump can be used in deep well conditions up to 60 meters. The India Mark III pump is identical in design to the India Mark II deep well hand pump except for the open top cylinder, and the 2 1/2 riser main and a water tank holder suitable for the 65mm riser pipe.Of the above-ground parts, only the Mark III Water tank is different from the Mark II, but they have the same bolt spacing. Therefore, it is easy to convert an existing Mark II pump into a VLOM Mark III pump by replacing only the water tank and the riser main. I’m the India Mark III, the PVC riser main is attached to the pump head with an adaptor plate and rubber ring of the same type as that used on the Afridev PUMP.


Aakash International hand pumps promise cleaner water

The solution to change these desperate conditions that exist in many regions of Africa and India must be mulch-faceted to accommodate a variety of conditions.

 3Aakash International provides Afridev Hand Pumps and India Mark II hand pumps to withstand drought. We wish to prevent the water drought, not react to it. It’s the only way to actually prevent the drought cycle from occurring when regional weather patterns change periodically. And it has been suggested by many scientists that as global warming evolves, drought cycles will become more common and for longer durations in many regions of the world that are currently in a water-stressed condition.

In reference, in 2001, the United Nations Environmental Program (UNEP) asked various organizations to perform an investigation of groundwater availability in water-short regions of the world. That investigation was documented in a report entitled: Groundwater Availability Study for Water-Short Developing Countries, where it was shown there are significant groundwater assets available even in some of the most drought-prone areas of the world. Although available, these groundwater assets are not being used today because often the leaders of drought-prone countries do not possess the political will to drill water wells for their own people.

Right now, countless communities in over 50 nations are suffering needlessly because water is scarce, contaminated, or non-existent. The sad irony is this:

mike19Often there is enough water to save thousands of lives just 100 to 300 feet away. Where? Underground. Therefore we bring Afridev hand pumps and India Mark II hand pump and equipment to rural areas in order to provide life-giving sources of water.

Hand pumps are used primarily in developing nations as a manually powered means of bringing water to the surface from a borehole, rainwater tank or well.

The main types of hand pumps we offer are the India Mark II, the India Mark III, and the Afridev deep-well (30 – 40 m deep) pumps. Village Level Operation and Maintenance (VLOM) refer to low maintenance hand pumps which can be maintained at a village level, intended to provide reliable long-term service.

Some of the features of Aakash international manufactured hand pumps are: Aakash International hand pump so easy to use, a child can pump up to 5 gallons per minute. Aakash International hand water pump so durable, it has a 50-year lifespan.

1The India Mark II Extra Deep well hand pump is designed for lifting water from extra deep water sources and is therefore strongly built. The maximal lift recommended is 80 m. The India Mark II Extra Deep well hand pumps are public domain pump defined by Indian Standards or RWSN specifications. This hand pumps is not considered to be a VLOM pump.

  • Modified version of India Mark-II hand pump.

  • Suitable for lifting water from depths of 45m to 90m.

  • Stroke length 100mm

  • Discharge 12 liters/ 40 strokes/ minute

  • Handle of bigger cross section & tee-bar attachment with additional weight reduces pumping effort.

    3Counter Weights

The Extra Deepwell Hand pump has counter weights attached to the Handle to assist in the movement of the handle since the water is lifted from very a great depth ( upto 90 meters). The number of counter weights depends upon the exact depth at which cylinder is placed.

For e.g. from 50-60 meters : 0 weights, from 60 -70 meters :1 weight , from 70-80 meters : 2 weights and from 80-90 metrs : 3 weights.10d82c_cd010e5ac67b4a00a10a206dc81f4aa7
