The aim of the paper is to design and develop a dual side water pumping system using scotch yoke mechanism. The reciprocating motion of the plunger is utilized for the pumping action. The plunger is reciprocated with the help of a cam plate. By this action the water is pumped with very high pressure and to various heads. This can be utilized for various applications like lubrication in machines and water pumping in agriculture field. The cam plate gets the drive from the motor for its rotation and converts that rotary motion to useful dual side reciprocating motion. The motor is powered with the aid of electric power. Thus the water is pumped from source to various heads.
Keywords: Electric Power, Pumping Elements, Reciprocating Pump, Scotch Yoke
