I Y Our invention relates to pumps, and will be discussed more particularly in connection with" pumps of the injector type.

, In pump systems of the injector type employed for pumping water from wells and the like, the injector assembly is customarily located in the well bore, and in the case of a deep Well, the assembly may be positioned a substantial distance below the pump unit, which is located usually at ground level. In such cases a considerable lift is involved in bringing the Water to within the influence of the pump unit. To assure eilicient functioning of the injector assembly, under such conditions, a portion of the pump output must be by-passed to the nozzle of the injector assembly at high pressure, thereby necessitating the designing of a pump unit for high pressure discharge. Consequently-in a conventional pump system of the above character, designed for deep well operation, the total output of the pump must be brought to a pressure determined primarily by the pressure requirements of the in- .lector assembly. Only that portion of the output necessary for operation of the injector assembly is by-passed down thepressure line to the injector nozzle, while the remainder is discharged from the pump unit, for use by the consumer. Usually, such discharge is directed into a pressure tank, where it is retained under pressure in readiness for subsequent use as desired.

The output pressure thus determined by the pressure requirements of the injector assembly is often much higher than what is customarily required for a pressure system, or for pumping directly into an overhead tank, as is sometimes the case. At such high pressures, the capacity output is necessarily limited, thus rendering such systems unsuited for low pressure uses, as for irrigation purposes, where large capacity output is of primary consideration.

Among the objects of our invention are- (1) To provide a novel and improved deep Well pump system, capable of discharging at lowv pressure;

(2) To provide a novel and improved deep well pump system having a selective low pressure or high pressure discharge;

(3) To provide an improved pump unit of increased output capacity for a -given energy input;

(4) To provide a novel and improved pump system of the injector type adapted for deep Well operation and capable of providing a discharge at low pressures;

(5) To provide an improved .pump system adapted to be readily converted from high pressure discharge to low pressure discharge to satisfy demand requirements of varying character;

(6) To extend the pressure range of a con- 18 Claims.

ventional relatively high pressure pump system, in the direction of lower pressures.

Additional objects of our invention will be brought out in the following description of the same, taken in conjunction with the accompanying drawings, wherein- Figure 1 is a conventionalized sectional View of a pump system embodying our invention, said view being split and displaced to conserve space on the drawing and permit of a showing on a larger scale;

Figure 2 is an enlarged portion of the conventionalized section view ofFigure 1;

Figure 3 is a sectional view taken along the line 3-3 of Figure 1, and partly broken away to expose underlying structure;

Figure 4 is a curve graph depictingoperating characteristics of our improved pump unit and system.

For purposes of description, the invention is shown adapted to a pump system of the type forming the subject matter of the patent' to Jacuzzi, No. 2,150,799, of March 14, 1939, although it is not necessarily limited to the particular structure of the patent referred to.

The pump system may be conveniently divided into two portions, that portion 5-l0cated in the Well casi-ng 6 below ground level, and the pump unit 'I located above ground. The portion below ground and located in the Well casing, is conventional structure and is not a part of the present invention, except in so far as it comprises an element of a new combination when considered in connection with the pump unit 'I above ground.

Such apparatus comprises a foot valve II disposed below the liquid level in the well, and forming the lower terminal of the suction line I3 which leads upward to the pump unit 1. Connected into the suction line is the injector unit assembly I5`comprising a venturi I1 and a nozzle I9. As is conventional, the venturi is disposed to receive water from -both the Well and the discharge end of the nozzle, the nozzle I9 being provided with a separate input passage 2| connecting to the pressure line 23, which in turn extends upwardly for connection to the pump unit.

'Ihe pump unit 'I which, in a conventional system, may straddle the upper end of the well casing 5, or as in some installations, may be located by the casing sections, and are accordingly adapted to rotate upon rotation of such shaft. This shaft extends through a suitable packing gland 4| in the end wall of the last stage, .and is connected for rotation to the shaft 43 of a driving motor 45, through a suitable coupling l1, the driving motor being mounted on a bracket l! formed integral with the upper casing section.

To provide for. smooth stream-lined ow of water through the various. stages in series, intermediate guide elements, or spiders 5| as they are sometimes termed, are provided, one for each stage. Each of said spiders is of star-shaped contour, having a plurality of ribs 53 across the upper surface, extending from the points of the star toward the center. The ribs are curved to define passages offering minimum resistance to flow of liquid from the outer edge inwardly toward the input end of the impeller of the next stage. These passages each receive the output of a preceding impeller, via a Venturi opening 55 in each alternate peripheral wall of the spider whereby the velocity of the impeller discharge is converted to pressure. Each guide element is press iitted or otherwise secured within its associated casing section and has an internal diameter permitting free rotation of the impeller therein. By reason of the presence of a plurality of guide opening in the transverse wall of the base section to which the pressure line 23 is connected.

the consumer.

We have found that, under certain conditions. the lower pressures of an intermediate stage in a high pressure system, can be availed of to advantage to moreclosely meet the pressure requirements of the consumer, and also that under channels distributed uniformly about the guide element or spider, it is well adapted to receive the discharge from an associated impeller during continuous rotation thereof and guide such discharge, with a minimum of loss, to the input of the impeller associated with the following stage in the series., This applies to all guide elements, except the guide element of the last stage, which is designed to receive the output of its associated impeller and direct the greater portion of the same into a discharge spout 51 conventionally formed in the casing section of the last stage.

The discharge spout 51 may be connected for open discharge or for discharge into the pressure tank 58 of a conventional pressure system, such, for example, as is illustrated in Jacuzzi Patent No. 2,205,121 of June 18, 1940. A manually adjustable control valve 59 is desirably placed in the discharge line, and the spout may carry a pressure gauge 6i for visually indicating existing pressure as the adjustments in the system are made. When connected to a pressure system, an automatic pressure switch 62 is conventionally included, its function being to start the pump when the air pressure in the tank falls to a certain minimum and stop the pump when maximum air pressure is restored in the tank.

Each of the casing sections 21, except the section of the last stage, is cast with an independent passage 63 longitudinally through the offset 29 of the casing section, which, upon assembling of all the sections of the pump unit, cooperate with the last stage, to provide a. 'by-pass channel 84 for a portion of the discharge from the last transverse wall 61 is provided with a threaded opening for receiving the upper end of the suction line I3. The other chamber, 13, connects with the by-pass 5I and terminates in a threaded such conditions, the output capacity of the pump system can be increased considerably, even to the extent of doubling the output capacity at Ythe lower pressures, which means a decided increase in the quantity of water obtained for a given power input. In other words, we have, through the establishment of certain conditions, been able to extend the pressure range of a pump system in the direction of lower pressures and increase the output accordingly. The pump characteristics are thereby altered from those of the conventional pump, all in favor of the consumer, as will be subsequently pointed out. As one step toward attaining these ends, we provide one ofthe intermediate stages with a low pressure discharge spout 15. This by itself, however, will not necessarily satisfy the conditions in question. We have found it to be quite an important factor, for one thing, to assure a full supply of by-pass liquid to the injector I5 at the higher pressure, for maintaining operation of such injector, without which the'pump system would cease pumping. The normal tendency of the low pressure spout 15 would be to divert the output from such intermediate stage and thus would naturally work against supplying the injector with its requirement of water. Therefore, the internal construction of the pump unit 1, and the particular intermediate stage in question, must be designed either to assure positive feed of liquid to the stages beyond, or to favor the flow of water into the upper stages to the extent of supplying the necessary volume to the injector, even under the extreme condition prevailing, with the low pressure discharge spout 15 wide open. At the same time, the intermediate stage must also satisfy the demands placed upon it by the low pressure discharge spout.

The stages of the pump unit under consideration, quite effectively lend themselves to such changes as are necessary to satisfy these conditions. In the absence of any further changes, and except for the relatively small angle bounded by the low pressure discharge spout, the discharge of the associated impeller, throughout a sub stantial portion of its rotational movement, is guided directly toward the many Venturi Aopenings in the spider, the output of which will be directed by the associated ribs 53 to the impeller of the next stage, thereby assuring positive feed of liquid to the subsequent stages, irrespective of the presence of the discharge spout 15.

To realize maximum free now oi' liquidV through the low pressure spoutsumcient to supply its demands, it has been found to be advantageous to construct the spider of the intermediate discharge stage with short ribs 11 over an extended angle greater than that angle normally subtended by the spout. This change in spider structure serves to expose the low pressure spout to the output from a plurality of the Venturi discharge openings 55 to one side of the spout, instead of conning it to the discharge from one suchvopen.. ing as would previously be the case; and the ability of the spider to fulfill the requirements of the subsequent stages is not thereby impaired.

Like with the high pressure end of the pump unit, the low pressure spout may carry a pressure gauge 19, and discharge either openly or through a pipe 8l. A control valve 83, in either case, may be provided to fix the low pressure range.

With an intermediate stage designed -along the lines described, the subsequent stages in the series may be formed on a smaller scale, or, as i1- lustrated in Figures 1 and 2, the passages there through may preferably be restricted in crosssection. By this change in relationship, an appreciable increase in efliclency of operation may be effected.

Although the conventional high pressure discharge spout 51 may be actually eliminated under the circumstances, such as by casting the section of the last stage Without such a spout, We prefer to retain the same, for in many installations, water at a wide range of pressures may be very desirable, and in the event the high pressure discharge is not needed, it may be shut off by the valve 59 or suitably plugged with a closure.

The invention is not limitedA to pumps of the deep well type, where the discharge pressure is so often far in excess of that required by the consumer, but may be adapted to pump systems of lower pressure characteristics. Thus, for example, where the pressure requirements of the injector unit may approximate the pressure desired in the tank of a pressure system, which may be of the order of to 40 lbs., the discharge spout 51 of the last stage will be connected to the pressure tank 58 in the customary manner, and a specially designed intermediate stage including a discharge spout 'l5 may be utilized for irrigation purposes, Where the volume requirement is large and the pressure requirement is practically nil. A higher eciency arrangement under the circumstances, is obtained by making the stages beyond the low pressure spout of smaller capacity per stage.

In installations embodying a discharge spout, both in the last stage of the series, and at an intermediate stage, the desired pressure range of the pump unit may be selected at will, merely by manipulating the control valve in each of the discharge lines until proper adjustment has been realized, and then leaving them undisturbed thereafter. These valves, thereby, determine the lowest pressure at which either discharge spout may deliver, and the maximum rate of discharge Which may be drawn therethrough. 'I'he vactual volume of pump delivery will be determined by the consumer when he manipulates one or more of the many taps or spigots customarily connected into such a system at conveniently located outlets.

In accordance with conventional practice, the valve 58 is customarily set at the lowest pressure value which will still permit operation of the injector. The control valve 83 is -not thusly limited as to adjustment as will be subsequently pointed out, and may preferably be left off altogether.

The general effect of the intermediate stage discharge on the pump system characteristics, is indicated in a rather striking manner, by the pressure-volume characteristic curves of a pump system embodying our invention. The curve A is representative of the variation in volume output with a lowering of discharge pressure in a conventional system, which in the pump system described, would be approximated with the valve 83 completely closed. Zero output at maximum pressure, namely lbs/sq. in. in the particular system under consideration, represents the condition when the discharge valve 59 is closed tight. As this valve is opened, the pressure as read on the gauge 6|, drops and the output will increase in accordance with the curve. It will be noted, however, that the curve A has a sharp cut-01T at 45 lbs./sq, in. This occurs at the pressure value, where the injector unit I5 can no longer function, and the pump ceases to operate. The pressure value at which cut-olf occurs, therefore, constitutes the lower limit of operation of the conventional pump system, and such pressure may still be well above the pressures one may ordinari-1y desire. In our improved system, a corresponding discharge characteristic at a low pressure spout, when connected in the rst stage of a pump unit, for example, will look like curve B. Under these conditions, the injector assembly l5 will function regardless of valve adjustments at the low pressure spout 15, by reason of the positive feed of water to the subsequent stages in the series. Consequently, the injector I5 no longer determines the minimum value of operating pressure in the system, which is now limited only by the full open discharge of the particular stage which carries the spout 15. It Will be apparent from this, therefore, that by operating along the curve B," not only can the pressure range of the pump system be extended from approximately the region of the cut-off pressure of the conventional system, to a value approaching zero, but in so doing, the output of the system can at the same time be increased to the extent of practically doubling the same. A large output at practically no pressure is ideal for irrigation purposes, whereby it will be appreciated that the utility of the pump system has been expanded by our invention to embrace regions of operation formerly delegatedto pump systems of diierent types entirely, whose inherent characteristics ideally adapted them for operation within such regions only. Thus, our improved system may be looked upon as a wide range system of many applications.

In using the term intermediate with reference to the low pressure discharge stage, we intend thereby to include any such stage up to but exclusive of the last stage. Therefore, the intermediate stage in accordance with the broad meaning given to the term, may evenconstitute the initial stage in the series.

Where no pressure system is tied in with the pump unit, starting and stopping ofthe pump operation may be effected manually as by the throwing of a switch if motor driven, or by the cranking of an engine if driven by a gas engine or the like. In installations, however, embodying a, pressure system, such pressure system customarily includes an automatic switch for controlling the starting and stopping of the pump operation. In this connection, it is of interest to note that without making any changes in the pressure system set-up, the automatic switch will also function to start the pump in response to opening of the petcock or spigot which controls the ow 7 i'rcm the low pressure irrigation discharge stage.

While we have described one embodiment of our invention in considerable detail, the principles thereof are applicable to structures of other types, without departing from the broad scope of our invention. We accordingly do not desire to be limited in our protection to the specitlc structure described and illustrated by us, except as may be necessitated by the prior art and the appended claims.
