    Glockemann Water Pumps Pty Ltd.

     

    To help Owners and Prospective Owners understand the Performance of the 320 Glockemann Water, I thought that I would explain how to get the best performance from the 320 Water Pump.

     

     Before I explain my experiences, I would to point out what you should have received when you purchased your 320 Pump.

     

    1. A Glockemann Water Pump.

    2. Site and Installation Guide, as well as a Glockemann Site plan. ( You  MUST read these two Guides till you know and understand how to install the 320 pump. )

    3. A Rubber Drive Pipe Coupling.

    4. Two one way valves, one inlet valve and one outlet valve.

     

    This is the standard equipment that is supplied when purchasing a Glockemann 320 Water Pump.

     

    I have just installed a 320 pump in North Queensland and these are the requirements that the owner wanted.

     

    To pump water to a height of 150meters using a 50mm poly pipe over a distance of 500meters

     

    To do this I selected the following.

     

    1. A Bore Size of 35mm. this would give me water to the distance that is required.

    2. Two lengths of 100mm poly pipe for the drive line.

    3. A drop from the intake to the pump of 1.3meters.

     

    I soon found out that there is much to learn when installing a 320 pump.

     

    Starting from the intake or drive line.

     

    1. You must install a good screen to stop sticks or leaves interferring with the drive line. You must make sure that the screen is well below the water, so no AIR can get into the DRIVE LINE.

    2. The Drive Line has to be as straight as possible. GLUE the MALE and the FEAMAIL ends together with Blew Plumbers Glue. 45degree bends can be fitted if required. When this is done and you have water flowing down the drive tube, look along the pipe to see if there are no leaks.

    3. If there are water leaks then you also have air entering into your drive line. This will stop the pump from working.

     

     

    1. By looking at the User Guide you will find on page 15 that you have several BORE SIZES from which to choose for your application. You will also look at your PERFORMANCE STATISTIC as this will explain the Delivery Head VS OUTPUTS in Litres  Per DAY. In this you will see two Diameter Drive Tubes, one is the 100mm tube and the other is 150mm tube.

    2. In my case I used the 100mm drive tube.

    3. If you do not understand this information, you will not get the pump to perform as it should.

    4. The One Way Valve, that I have supplied  is only suited to low head heights.  If  you are pumping to heights over 50 meters, than you should change the ones that have been supplied and install full BRASS type valves.

    5. Before having the water flow down the drive tube, you must screw the Throttle out to the maximum. When the water is flowing, screw the Throttle inwards for about five turns. With your hand, pull the Exhaust Valve closed and hold it closed for 30 seconds, then push the Valve inwards. This will get all the air out of the system.

    6. To get the  maximum  push of water up the line, first slowly fill the water line till there is about a 20ft  head of water in the line, then slowly screw the Throttle inwards every10 minutes till you have maximum power. This may mean that you don’t have to screw the Throttle all the way in to get the power that is required.

    7. Once you have done this, make SURE that the out let of the Exhaust is under the water, so no air can enter the pump.

     

    The Glockemann 320 Water Pump that I supplied to my customer, is pumping 2 litres of water every 90seconds 24hrs a day to a height of 150 meters at no cost. NO other pump on the market today will perform like a Glockemann 320 water pump.

     

    If I can be of help to owners or prospective  owners, please send me an email, I will try to help.
