The Spiral Pump

A High Lift, Slow Turning Pump 


 
By Peter Tailer, TailerP@aol.com
80 Lyme Road, Apt 318
Hanover, NH 03755
 U.S.A.

Summary: A spiral pump, first invented in 1746, has been recreated and tested at Windfarm Museum using lightweight and inexpensive modern materials.

A 6 foot diameter wheel with 160 feet of 1-1/4 inch inside diameter flexible polyethylene pipe is able to pump 3,900 gallons of water per day to a 40 foot head with a peripheral speed of 3 feet per second. With its low torque requirements, the pump is particularly suited to be mounted on and driven by a paddle wheel in a current of two feet per second or greater.

This easily built, low maintenance spiral pump can be used to provide water without the need for fuel wherever there is a flowing stream or river. It can also be hand turned or otherwise driven to provide a low cost, efficient pump.

Another Renewable Energy Technology that needs NO fossil fuels and, now thanks to computers, this OVER A CENTURY OLD Renewable Energy Hydro Technology (that does not kill fish) is fantastically efficient at extracting power from low head hydro sites that the pelton wheels used in most dams cannot begin to compete with.   ;D
