Fluid Technology

Applications

 
 

Pumps move liquids,

  • causing a transition from a state of lower pressure to a state of higher pressure
  • causing a transition from a state of a low geodetic level to a state of a higher geodetic level (geodetic pressure = gravity force)
  • causing a transition from a lower flow rate to a higher flow rate.

Pumps operate on one of two basic principles: the positive displacement principle and the centrifugal principle. The liquid flows axially into centrifugal pumps and is set into motion by a high-speed vane wheel. In piston pumps the liquid in the cylinder is compressed by a piston moving back and forth.
