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. Aakash International hand water is so affordable, you can install it anywhere you need safe drinking water.


The afridev hand pump : New and improved

The pump division of Aakash International has introduced new and improved Afridev hand pump for export.  The company’s export branch also ensures that the new and improved

cropped-1.jpgAfridev pump can be made available though out African region. Our experience has shown that the failure of water-supply projects lays not so much in the implementation of these products, but in the subsequent maintenance of these water systems. Systems fail because maintenance needs cannot be met. The choice of technology often requires a highly- skilled maintenance team. However, as a result of financial constraints and lack of resources, the high costs of this type of maintenance are often not sustainable. What is needed is a technology that matches the resources to sustain it. Water-supply technologies that are designed around the Village Level Operation & Maintenance (Vlom) concept have the highest potential for sustainability. For many communities in Africa, hand pumps such as Afridev, India MKII and III and the Zimbabwean Bush pump are often the only source of potable water supply.

3The success of our hand pumps in remote and inaccessible parts of Africa is mainly attributed to the Vlom characteristics of these pumps. Aakash International manufactured afridev hand pumps are easy to operate and do not require a highly-skilled maintenance team to carry out routine repairs and maintenance. Aakash International produced hand pumps are also easy to install as heavy equipment and specialized tools are not required. The rising main of the Afridev hand pump is a belled uPVC column that is easily installed using two or three people. No tripod is required and, with the help of the guiding rope, the columns are installed without much fuss. The connecting hook and eye rods fit into each other and no spanner is required. Once the uPVC columns have been installed, it is no longer necessary to remove the columns when doing future maintenance. The cylinder has an open top through which the plunger rod is easily removed, allowing the hand pump technician to change the necessary seals. Aakash International hands pumps have extensive countrywide and international distribution network, which ensures that spares are readily available, thus ensuring the continued sustainability of the product.

Exceptional features of Afridev hand pump

Many operations in the industry involve the use of machines that will make the task easier for a person to manage. The Afridev hand pump is one such machinery that helps in easing out the hassles that were associated with the use of hand pumps. This is unlike the static hand pumps that are available for purchase in the market. It is designed for drawing water from the deep wells and works best for large communities that need water to serve an average of 300 people. The maximum amount of lift that is granted by the pump is 45 meters. The manufacturing details of the pump can be verified and seen at the dealer’s website. The material of this pump is entirely anti corrosive. It also helps in resisting the huge temperature variations in the surroundings. This pump is easy to install and can be maintained without any hassles by the community where it will be installed.

mike19This type of hand pump works on a lever action that expels the water from the mouth. The pulley exerts a peculiar amount of pressure, which will generate higher volume of water as the output. The pump has an open top cylinder which allows an easy piston removal. This saves a person from dismantling the entire cylinder from the rising main. The foot valve that is fitted onto the pump can be easily retracted using a fishing tool. Thus, a complete dismantling and assembling the parts become quite easier for one to handle. The pump also has exquisite features that renders it an unusual quality and worthy as well. The bearing bushes in the pump are made with a special type of plastic and are galvanized using special techniques as well. The handle settings of the pump can be changed as per the height of each person. This makes it entirely customizable and easy to use as well.

The Afridev hand pump has a larger stroke length, which determines that the output will be larger. The connecting rods are guarded with rubber sheaths that ensure the safety of the materials. It saves it from wearing out every time it is used for drawing the water. The pump also comes with a manual that makes it easy to install. There are special tools for maintaining and installing the pumps. It will also help in saving the time as well as the cost in buying intricate tools for installation.
