Steering india into 21 st century l.jpg

Steering India into 21st Century

  • Piped irrigation is very common in developed world

  • Probably the only way water is supplied for irrigation in most developed countries

  • Piped irrigation is long overdue in India

  • Wangana would be a role-model


Steering india into 21 st century5 l.jpg

Steering India into 21st Century

  • Traditional canal irrigation is highly inefficient

    • At most 50% efficiency

    • OK when water has little or no value

    • NOT acceptable when we add value to water by lifting it up several 10s of meters

Steering India into 21st Century

  • Piped Irrigation

    • Almost 100% efficiency

    • Highly suitable for hilly terrains

    • High residual pressures at several outlets

      • Direct connection to sprinkler or drip irrigation

    • Easy to measure water usage

    • NO loss of precious irrigable land

    • Fewer cross drainage works

    • No water logging and consequent reduction in agricultural yield


Will the piped irrigation be more costlier l.jpg

Will the piped irrigation be more costlier ?


Will the piped irrigation be more costlier8 l.jpg

Will the piped irrigation be more costlier ?

  • Not necessarily, when we look at the overall efficiency and benefits

    • Value added water

    • Life of the project

    • Cross drainage works

    • Maintenance costs

    • Savings in irrigable land

  • There may not be much difference in cost per hectare as more efficient use of water will help irrigate more land


Are there any problems with piped irrigation systems l.jpg

Are there any problems with piped irrigation systems ?

  • There are advantages and disadvantages to any system

    • Calls for more competent design engineers and contractors

    • Unsophisticated cheap designs may end up in more maintenance problems

    • Poor quality construction may lead to leakage, pipe breaks and failure of the entire project


Cost savings through efficient design and use of sophisticated pressure and flow control equipment l.jpg

Cost Savings through efficient design and use of sophisticated pressure and flow control equipment


Cost savings l.jpg

Cost Savings

  • Most pipeline failures are due to improper management of air in distribution networks

    • Air in pipes is a big problem

    • Proper management is essential


Cost savings13 l.jpg

Cost Savings

  • Large quantities of air enters and get trapped only if the pipes are allowed to drain

Entrained Air

Pump trip – water stops

Water drains

by gravity when

there is no control

by gravity when

there is no control


Cost savings14 l.jpg

Cost Savings

  • Large quantities of air CHOKES the pipes and reduce their carrying capacity.

  • This requires over sizing of pipes and increased costs.

Entrapped Air can Choke the pipe

and reduce its capacity


Cost savings15 l.jpg

Cost Savings

  • PFCMD (Pressure Flow Control Metering Device) prevents draining of pipes

No air entrainment !

PFCMD shuts

down when the

pressure goes down


Cost savings16 l.jpg

Cost Savings

  • Small quantities of entrained air will be removed through air valves


Cost savings17 l.jpg

Cost Savings

  • Little or no air in the pipes allow for most economical sizing of pipes

Pressure Flow Control Metering Device (PFCMD)

  • Maintains 10 L/s irrespective of pressure at each outlet

  • Will measure consumption

  • Shuts down when the pressure drops below the set value

  • Virtually maintenance free

  • Operates solely based on available pressure

  • No need for external power or electricity

  • No need for control systems like SCADA


Modern design tools l.jpg

Modern Design Tools

  • Pipe2000 Hydraulic Modeling Software

  • Allows for optimal diameter selection based on limits on velocities and pressures

  • Computes total cost of the project based on the unit cost of pipes

  • PFCMD can be included in the model

Summary l.jpg

Summary

  • Use of modern technology and good engineering helped us minimize the overall cost of the project while providing a state-of-the-art solution and maintenance free design
