Main Pumps used for irrigation in Kenya
- Petrol and diesel Centrifugal pumps
- Submersible pumps (Electric or Solar pumps)
- Electrical centrifugal pumps
High Pressure and Low Pressure Water Pumps
Petrol and diesel water pumps are mainly used to draw water from dams, reservoirs or rivers. They are surface pumps with suction head range of 6-7m. They are further categorized into high pressure or low pressure water pumps.
High pressure water pumps in Kenya are mainly used for pumping water uphill or for pumping water over long distances. They pump low volume of water but at very high pressure.
Low pressure pumps on the other hand pumps large water volumes, but cannot pump water uphill or over long distances
Factors to consider when selecting an irrigation water pump
Before selecting an irrigation pump in Kenya, you have to consider the following:
- The pump flow rate. This is indicated in m3.
- Total dynamic head. This takes into consideration the frictional loss as a result of the speed of water on the pipes. When selecting pumps and pipes, you should note that:
- The smoother the pipe, the less the frictional loss.
- The larger the pipe diameter, the less the frictional loss.
- Total head reduces as you go up the pipeline, and lighter duty pipes can used towards the delivery points.
- Total suction head. Which range between 6m-8m
- Water source. (Dam, well, river etc)
Irrigation water pumps brands in Kenya
- Honda Water Pumps
- AICO Water Pumps
- Grundfos Multistage Pumps
Irrigation pump pipes and classes
Once a pump has been selected, you need to match the pressure requirements of the pipe. Select heavy gauge pipes at the beginning and low gauge towards the end when total head reduces. You can select from PN6 to PN25 for both HDPE and PVC pipes.
