Fluidyne pump

Post by Nws » Fri Nov 01, 2019 10:13 am

Hi everyone,

I'm curious if anyone has experience with fluidine water piston pump. Please forgive me as I have a lot of questions.

Here is a link to one in operation

Can this be scaled up to pump water from a well?
What depth/head could be expected?
My current well is 11 meters down, but I could drill another that would be less shallow, about 3 meters.
Pipe diameter?

Heat would be provided by converting rice straw/husks into biochar or a solar freshnel lens when not available.

A little background, I have a small natural farm raising chickens, ducks, geese, and goats while growing bananas, papayas, pineapples and gardening in the tropics. The local rice farmers burn all their straw/husks to get rid of it but they let me get what I want and I use it for ground covering (really cuts down on the flies and smell) and nesting. I produce about 2 tons of compost every month. I'm swimming in It, lol. So I have started to charcoalize the excess bedding and spreading it all over. I would love for a way to use the heat produced for something productive.

Thank you in advance.
