This section includes enterprises in Zambia that pumps powered by electricity, solar or wind. In general, these enterprises cater for both industrial and domestic water supply needs in Zambia. Find suppliers of a range of submersible borehole pumps that can be suitable for installation in wells. Borehole pumps can be used to extract water and other liquids from underground sources. While pump sizes may vary greatly depending on their purpose, each pump usually has a compact, cylindrical shape designed to fit inside a borehole. The pumps are operated using electric motors. Hand pumps can also be installed for communities.
Reciprocating Pumps: These pumps have a plunger that moves up and down within a cylinder to produce positive displacement of water.
Suction pumps: In this type, the plunger and the cylinder are located above the water level, usually within the pump itself.
Deep well pumps: In these pumps, plunger and cylinder sets are located below the water level.
Diaphragm pumps: Their main component is a diaphragm, a flexible disc normally made of rubber or metal.
Positive Displacement Pumps: These pumps lift water when their mechanisms rotate; due to that rotation, water is "picked" and forced up.
Axial Flow Pumps: In this type of pump, radial blades are mounted in an impeller (propeller type of wheel) which rotates in an enclosure (casing).
Centrifugal Pumps: These pumps are also made with an impeller within a casing. In these pumps, the impeller is a wheel with blades radiating from the centre to the periphery which, when rotated at high speed, impart movement to the water and produce an outward flow due to centrifugal forces; the angle between the direction of entry and exit of water flow is 90 degrees.
Hydraulic Rams: Basically, rams may be defined as hydraulically driven pumps; they require no fuel or electricity to operate.
