Orbit Deep Well Hand Pump

Designed to operate in remote rural area, the Franklin Electric rotary hand pump is capable of drawing potable water from boreholes or wells as deep as 120m.

Self compensating stator – low torque starting which allows the youngest and most infirm operator to turn the pump easily. As pressure increases the stator/rotor fit tightens to increase efficiency.

Hard chrome plated brass rotor which, combined with low rotational speeds, gives extremely long maintenance-free life.

Foot valve prevents water in the column from running back, so that the next person using the pump does not have to fill the rising main before obtaining water.

    Direct-Drive Head

    For shallow wells or boreholes of up to 60m.

    • Single operating in horizontal plane directly coupled to pump.
    • Robust construction incorporating angular contact bearings sealed for a long life.
    • Direct-drive principle eliminates gears and bushes, which reduces cost to make it an attractive option for shallow

    Geared Head

    For wells and boreholes of up to 120m.

    • A gear ratio of 1:1,33 for depths of up to 120m.
    • Forged gears for maintenance-free life.
    • Handle bearings as standard.
    • Forged double handles.
    • Shaft fixed within the gearbox for tamper proof operation.
    • The anti-reverse ratchet is manufactured from Cast SG42 iron and features eight stop positions.
