How India Plans to Reduce its Dependence on Middle East Oil

How India Plans to Reduce its Dependence on Middle East Oil

The sun never sets for Pravin Jamkhandi, a 49 year old farmer. He is the only one of the four brothers to continue farming and works on his 6.2-hectare land. He grows hybrid cucumber, often referred to as ‘Chinese kheera’ by city vendors and is a keen learner of new agricultural practices.

He realises that even when India is the largest segment of the Indian populace are farmers, they face endless occupational challenges everyday, often owing to flood, drought, productivity and irrigation. Irrespective of the rainfall received during a particular season or the presence of water bodies around, the crisis looms large on these agriculturists for whom water is nothing less than an elixir. And so, he puts his trust in innovative agro pumps that are designed to provide superior performance and reliability are ideal for all agricultural solutions, like the ones that Crompton makes.

Crompton’s extensive range of pumps expands through categories like household, Agriculture specialty, and solar. Over the years, its agricultural pumps specifically have become a megahit because they are sturdy and provide an unfailing and steadfast performance. Here are a few ways how Crompton has been silently allying with the farmers’ toil for decades:
Extensive range of pumps suitable for all your needs and applications
Agriculture pumps are used for irrigation of land by sprinkler, flood or micro-irrigation. Water is pulled out by pumps from reservoirs with the help of open well or monoblock pumps or with the help of borewell pumps from borewells that are up to 60 to 1500 feet deep!

An agro pump helps farmers transfer water from one source to another with ease. Whether the source is underground or situated on the surface, these pumps are powerful enough to draw water from just about any depth. For your farming and agricultural needs, these pumps use high pressure to transfer the water to your desired location. They help make the distribution of water more convenient with every pull. But before you buy a pump, you need to understand its specifications. Each pump has a different power range, stage, head range, discharge range, pipe size and supply phase. The higher the power, the greater will be the discharge from the pump.
Keeping this in mind, we have brought you information about the various types of agricultural pumps and their features.

Borewell Submersible Pump

Farmers are well aware that unpredictable rainfall leads to an uneven supply of water. To ensure uninterrupted water supply throughout the year, you can opt for a borewell submersible pump. This pump is entirely submerged in water. Lower HP variants are also used for supplying water to residential and industrial units. Borewell pumps come with many exciting features like better hydraulic and electrical design along with high-grade electrical stamping which make the pump highly efficient. The specially designed thrust bearing ensures reliability and its simple construction makes maintenance easy. It can also function effectively in a wide voltage band, protecting it from voltage fluctuations.

Open Well Submersible Pump

Used to extract water from reservoirs and transfer it to the storage in farms or directly to the farmland, this pump is also submerged in water. It can be used in irrigation, transferring water from canals, wells to farms etc. These pumps come under wide voltage range and with CED coated parts. Their ability to function effectively in a wide voltage range without damaging the pump makes them a safer and more durable option. The parts that are CED coated make the pump rust and stuck-free, giving it a longer life. If you are looking to buy open well pumps, you must consider factors like reservoir, storage tank size, pipe diameter, and material used in pumps before buying them. Also, there are two types – horizontal and vertical. It’s always better to talk to an expert before making a purchase.

Centrifugal Monoblock Pumps

When there is a need for vast quantities of fluids to be transferred from one location to the other, these pumps come in handy. They ensure that the flow rates are high. Monoblock Pumps find use in agriculture, industry, wastewater plants, mining, power generation plants and many more industries. Centrifugal pumps offer wide voltage bands like most agricultural pumps do but what sets it apart is the monoset construction. The monoset construction and high-quality mechanical seal prevents any leakage and prevent contaminants out.
Stress-free Solutions for Regular Water Supply
Crompton agriculture pumps ensure that you don’t miss out on your regular water supply, whether it is your overhead water tank, industrial applications or farming needs. They come with advanced technology and features like:

  • High Grade Electrical Stampings that ensure reduced power losses & lower the operating current of the pump.
  • Wide Voltage Application is designed to withstand wide voltage fluctuations from 250V-440V & provides consistent performance.
  • Lower Operating Current with robust electrical design leading to lower electricity bill.
  • High Thrust Capacity ensured by specially designed thrust bearing leading to highest reliability.
  • Long term maintenance with easily replaceable wear & tear parts, low maintenance cost.

Water pumps offer benefits to not just farmers but also crops and ecosystems on the whole. They are an essential to the modern irrigation system and should be invested in if not done already.
