UNICEF Hand Pump R&D Project Concluding Report


The search for alternative components for India Mark II hand pumps started with the need to find non-corrodible below-ground assemblies for hand pumps installed in aggressive water conditions. Published data during 1985-92, on the performance of uPVC riser pipes in deep well hand pump applications in Sri Lanka and in shallow water table conditions in coastal Orissa provide some understanding of the behaviour of uPVC when used as riser pipes'. These and other experiences of that period recorded notch failure in threaded couplers and riser pipe ends; abrasion of external pipe surfaces against borewell walls, internal wear against connecting rod couplings and slippage of glued bell joints.

Meera & Ceiko Pumps Ltd., Hyderabad (M&C) offered to execute this work and it was accepted by UNICEF. Work started on the UNICEF Hand Pump R&D Project in Ranga Reddy District of Andhra Pradesh in September 1999. The project was extended once and came to a conclusion at the end of November 2000.
