Description:
A SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR UNDERGROUND FLUID ABSTRACTION TECHNICAL FIELD

The invention relates to a system and method allowing the abstraction of underground water and fluid resources to the ground surface without consuming any energy. STATE OF THE ART

Wind Rose Water Abstraction and Pumping System

The impeller (propeller) rotating over a 10-meter tower with the wind energy drives the mechanism and thus, said mechanism draws water from the well by means of the pump. A light wind suffices for the operation of the system. It is capable of drawing up to 25-30 tons of water daily in windy weather.

The Wind Rose is capable of drawing-pumping between 10 and 15 tons of water in a normal windy weather. On the other hand, it is capable of drawing-pumping 25-30 tons of water in above-normal windy weather.

It is of great advantage in irrigation of cultivated areas. One can meet his water demand using wind energy, without having to pay for electricity. It is possible to draw water up to a depth of 80 meters and deliver water up to 1000 meters. The impeller and tower systems varying in size according to need are available.

Suction and force pump

Suction pump is the type of pump that draws the fluid to be drawn only with the upward movement of the piston and drains the same. During upward movement of the piston, while the water in the cylinder is discharged, the cylinder is re-filled with water from the source at the same time.

In the suction and force pump, on the other hand, first water is drawn to the cylinder and it is pumped out through the outlet in the piston with the downward movement of the piston.

The valves in the pumps are openable in one direction only and they open/close according to the pressure and flowing direction of the water. Water Abstraction from Wells Using Solar Energy

It relates to drawing water from a well utilizing solar energy, which is one of the never-ending energy resources, in order to be able to draw water from a well without using any energy or consuming human energy. In order to draw water from a well, pumps or water pumps, or in some cases spinning wheels, are employed. Here, it is made possible to draw water from a well utilizing the solar pressure. The whole assembly is filled with water such that no air will be let therein. Since the storage is disposed under the sun, the internal pressure of the storage increases. The valve on the tube prevents the water from getting out of the barrel, and when the valve on the barrel is opened, the water flows under pressure. As long as the pressure is provided by the sun, water flow continues. After a water demand at a certain amount is met, the valve is closed. As the water vapors inside the barrel will condense due to the ambient temperature during the night and a certain amount of water is removed from the barrel within the day, vacuum effect will be created within the barrel. The thus formed vacuum effect will absorb the water in upward direction thanks to the atmosphere pressure, thereby re-filling the barrel. As a result, the water consumed during the day will be replaced and daily water demand will be met without any effort.

DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a system and method for underground fluid abstraction, which have been developed for overcoming the aforementioned disadvantages and providing additional advantages in the related technical field.

The product according to the invention relates to drawing water or fluid which is to be drawn from an underground well to the ground surface making use of open air pressure, and to the usage thereof in agricultural irrigation.

For example, it permits the use of water from a drilled well in agricultural irrigation without requiring any energy.

The system and method according to the invention makes use of the pressure of liquids principle in general. Drawings

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

In this detailed description, the preferred alternatives of the embodiment of the system and method for underground fluid abstraction according to the invention are described only for a better understanding of the subject matter, without any limitations. Solenoid valve (1) is the component which automatically controls the water entering/exiting the system.

Straight tube (2) is the waterway enabling the water withdrawn from the well to rise upwards.

Helical tube (3) is the component which ensures the flow of water reaching the peak point of the straight tube (2) at a certain speed.

Check valve (4) is the component which prevents return of the water inside the straight tube (2) to the well.

Open air pressure (Pa) is the atmosphere pressure.

Tube pressure (Pb) is the pressure of the water which is moved towards the straight tube (2) with the open air pressure (Pa), within the tube.

In the system according to the invention, the helical tube (3) is filled from above with water for once only, from a drilled well by opening the solenoid valve (1) on the tube. In the meantime, the solenoid valve ( b) engaged in the lower portion of the helical tube (3) is kept close. The water filling into the helical tube (3) will apply pressure towards the solenoid valve in the lower portion. The solenoid valve (1b) is opened in order to deflate the system and closed again after the air is removed from the system, and then continuing to supply the system with water by means of the solenoid valve (1a) in the upper portion. Upon filling of the helical tube (3) with water, the solenoid valve (1b) in the lower portion is opened and thus, the system is provided with enough water to irrigate the field.

Upon starting to carry water from the helical tube (3) to the irrigation area, water is drawn upwards from the well through the straight tube (2). And the water abstraction process will continue until any one of the solenoid valves ( a, 1b) is closed.

As for the pressure in the system, as long as the solenoid valves ( a, 1b) are kept close, the pressure in flow direction will be maintained. Once the solenoid valves (1a, 1b) are opened, flow will continue again.

The diameters of the helical tube (3) and the straight tube (2) are the same, wherein the length difference between the helical tube (3) and the straight tube (2) is at least twice (2 times) and/or above, and in accordance with this, the amount of water in the helical tube (3) is twice (2 times) as that of the straight tube (2).

The invention is a system and method for underground fluid abstraction, wherein it has been exemplified by drawing water, i.e. water abstraction, for an easy understanding thereof in a non-limiting way. With the invention, any kind of underground fluid is drawn.
