Types of Industrial Pumps
Due to the nature of the fluids that can be used in an industrial application, industrial pumps come in a large array of sizes and shapes. Many of these pumps are positive displacement pumps, including rotary pumps.
This is a vast range of pump types such as piston pumps, diaphragm pumps, screw pumps, gear pumps, peristaltic pumps, progressive cavity pumps, and many others.
There are also centrifugal pumps, which use a rotating impeller to accelerate a fluid and increase its pressure. There are many other types of pumps that are named based upon the functions they perform—including concrete pumps, slurry pumps, paint pumps, grinder pumps, and many others. The only types of pumps not used in for industrial purposes are those specifically designed for medical, scientific, or household usage, although many of the basic pumping mechanisms are the same.
