Low stand pump - NP

The hand operated stand pumps of the NP type with a low discharge stand are distinguished by having the work piston located directly in the discharge stand above the well. They are used mainly for dug, bored and driven wells of a depth of not more than 7 metres. They are the smallest and cheapest kind of household well pumps.

- Capable of pumping water from a depth to 7m

- Both functional and decorative

Cast iron body

Mode of application of N-P pumps:
a) Dug well and driven well
b) Location of the pump beyond well

Technical description

The pumping set consists of a stand with an outlet, a suction pipe and a suction strainer. The whole pumping unit is assembled according to the depth of the well and the overall length of the suction pipe from the plate to the bottom of the suction trainer is supplied in a length which is 30 cms shorter than the depth of the well. Suction of stirred turbid water and sand is thus prevented.


During one stroke, the pump sucks and lifts the water, during the other stroke it idles. This means that by one upwar stroke of the piston, the water is sucked under the piston. During the other movement of the piston into the bottom position, the water gets above the piston by lifting of a valve and flows out through an outlet from the pump.
