irrigation system shall be shown as installed, with clear measurements from an identifiable reference point to the location of the controller and its circuit breaker, master valve, zone control valves, main water connection, blow out connection, pump and its electrical connections, and any other similar features. Please see Figure 7 for details.   Pump Discharge Rate, Q = gpm. Pumping Lift, L e = 70 ft. Discharge Pressure, P = 60 psi. Pump Speed = rpm. Pump Test Duration = hr. CheckPump Speed: Measure pump speed with a portable tachometer to ensure that the pump is operating according to its specifications. The pump operating speed should be stamped on a plate attached to the pump discharge head.

Irrigation Pumping Plant Safety. Agricultural irrigation systems move large quantities of water over short periods of time, consuming and creating a significant amount of energy in the process. So these systems require caution during operation and service. Irrigation Pumping Plants and Energy se 2 G Cooperative Extension ulletin 3 Information that must be obtained during the performance test includes: pumping rate, pumping lift, discharge pressure or head, and the amount of fuel or energy used per hour. Tests conducted in Georgia from to indicated very similar results.

Calculating Pumping Plant Performance An example set of field data (below) helps illustrate the procedure for calculating pumping plant performance. Pump Discharge Rate, Q = gpm Pumping Lift, L e = 70 ft Discharge Pressure, P = 60 psi Pump Speed = rpm Fuel Consumed (Diesel) = gal Pump Test Duration = hr. A pumping plant test requires the physical properties that determine pumping plant performance be measured. Pumping rate, pumping lift, pressure at the discharge outlet, and the amount of fuel consumed over a period of time must be measured while the pump is operating at its normal load. The engine and pump speed should also be measured to.

A pumping plant test requires measuring the physical properties related to the pump. Pumping rate (gpm), pumping lift, pressure at the discharge outlet, and the amount of fuel consumed over a period of time must be measured while Revised irrigation pumping plant test procedure manual pump is operating at its normal load.

Table 1. Nebraska Performance Standards for Irrigation Pumping Plants. inability to determine the season long efficiency of an irrigation pumping plant. A new approach to evaluating irrigation pumping plant performance is the use of pump monitoring systems which use high frequency, real-time data collection and telemetry to relay information directly from the pump to the user.

Irrigation Pumping Plant Efficiency by J.L. Chávez, D. Reich, J.C. Loftis, Revised 9/ than anticipated. In other cases, the Internal combustion engine driven plants are more difficult to test since both the engine and the pump should be evaluated.

Irrigation systems have several uses in addition to water delivery for crop ET. Water is required for a preseason operational test of the irrigation system to check for leaks and to ensure proper performance of the pump and power plant.

Irrigation water is also required for field preparation, crop establishment, crop growth and development, within. Pumps are therefore installed in different sections of a plant. The choice of the right pump at the right place is crucial and will be responsible for the success or failure of the process.

The following factors should be taken into consideration: 1. Installation of the pump 2. Suction and delivery pipes 3. Protects crops from frost damage: Irrigation water is commonly used to lower the freezing temperature in orchard systems during threats of damaging frost 7.

Reduces plant stress: By reducing stress on the plant, proper irrigation improves plants’ resistance to pest and disease damage and improves crop quality (see E, below).

HUNTER Handbook of Technical Information FORMULAS GENERAL 2 GENERAL SLOPE Slope, as used in irrigation, is a measure of the incline of an area. It can be described as (1) a percent, formula “A”, (2) a degree, formulas “B” and “C”, or (3) a ratio, formula “D”.

The Plumbing Code. The Code outlines the best and most modern methods to be used in plumbing installations. Since the plumbing in any private or public building is a part of the community water and sewage disposal system, it is vital that such installations should not be left to the discretion of irresponsible individuals.

For information on pumping plant selection and costs see Reference 1 and Texas AgriLife Extension publication L “Pumping Plant Efficiency and Irrigation Costs” (Reference 6). You should have a pumping plant efficiency test made at least every 5 to 8 years. Extension Circular discusses how it pays to test your irrigation pumping plant.
