The Mechanical Amplifier that I designed on my own 4 months back, fabricated in Pune and sent across to My farm 800 kilometers away is finally working. The following are the advantages.
a) The ABS (Poldaw) windmill has a freedom of 10 cms (3.5 inches) verticle movement. This need to be amplified to exploit the foot valve cylinder that has over 20 inches freedom so that more water will come. This apparattus that I have designed works like a cantilever to expand this movement (energy). Presently we get 3000 to 5000 liters of water per day. This will become 20,000 to 30,000 liters per day. Already we are seeing early results even without adjusting further.
b) This will isolate windmill from underground pipe/rod assembly. So that we can work in deep well bore without stopping the windmill.
c) The twist and turn of the windpump rotor will not affect and unscrew the borewell rods anymore. Minimum repair and re-fix.
Kandhan and his friend Paramu could not think of an alternate solution. There were actually so many alternate solutions available. But they thought of the most difficult one, and kept postponing executing it because they have to carry the heavy frame to the welding machine in another town. I dismissed their ideas.
Finally I have to intervene and the provide a simple solution. Refer the photograph. I just ask them to put a strip of metal over the Bolt we keep the frame anchored to the ground and it worked.
They misplaced the video message in WhatsApp. Finally everything is in place. Minor adjustments here and there are still required. But water is coming. Subbu had taken pains in the last 2 days to mend the pipe, fittings and actually worked very hard. Only the counter weight is still not properly placed. Subbu was reluctant to add weight. When forced, he said he will hang a lorry tyre. I got wild and ridiculed his thinking process itself. Suggested him to hang sand bag.
