    Yes this drawing would work well to show the centrifical water pump. What this one is trying to communicate is the idea of going much bigger then the current 2 1/2"-4" trash type of water pumps. A good engine size to start with will be 6 cylinders in size, go 8 cylinders if he can. Will have a hard time wearing out or keeping up with the water flow of this size pump on a trailer that can be dragged around with the back hoe. It the pump is to much to start with just run the engine a little above idle speed. As the operation grows the increment speed of the water pump goes up. Do not know about any regulations in Russia. Some one may need to take a look at that.

    Higher pressure then 150 PSI. may be needed. However try a water nozzle with more then one opening or nozzle first to help free up the rocks. The higher water flow will work well on the softer peat and smaller gravel for sure.
    The best way to get higher PSI pressure is to stack two pumps together for freeing up the harder layers of rocks.

    If one stacks inline two of these water pumps is how you get a higher PSI. working pressure for blasting. Still this only frees up rocks only water volume will move lots of yards of sand and rocks.

    The pumps up at my claim, next trip in a week or so I'll pull measurements and make a drawing for you.

    Thank you N-Lionberger for jumping in.
    Wonder if a simple water pipe probe can be made and just probe the pipe in and out of the different sand and gravel layers? The higher pressures may not be needed. Looks like the current trash pumps feed into one or more nozzles. Just weld up a long pipe probe with many holes in it. Heck the probe can be mounted to the back hoe tractor if needed more support. Some thing to work on over the winter.

    The pipe probe should have 1 - 2 small holes on the very end to help cut into the compressed sands and gravels. The rest of the probe pipe should have holes every 1 - 2 inches. Just put a shutoff valve on the prob so turn on and off the water flow. There are two pumps there already just make some pipe probes for these two pumps.

    I like this guy... I've had the good fortune to call a few (3-2) Russians " friends" in the last 40 years and I'll tell ya...they are a great and unique people.. If this guy says he wants to cast his own pump ...don't sell him short. Odds are he WILL do it.
    I don't have a Keene pump..but I will be watching this thread to see how it proceeds. Good luck Sasha!!!

    Мне нравится этот парень ... Мне повезло назвать несколько (3-2) русских друзей за последние 40 лет, и я скажу вам ... они великие и уникальные люди .. Если этот парень говорит, что хочет бросить свой собственный насос ... не продавай его коротким. Скорее всего, он это сделает.
    У меня нет насоса Keene ... но я буду следить за этой нитью, чтобы узнать, как это происходит. Удачи Саше !!!
