Pumps & Pumping
Pumps come in a variety of sizes and designs for a broad spectrum of industrial applications. Pumps primarily convert the mechanical energy of a motor into fluid flow energy and are categorised as either dynamic or positive displacement pumps. Dynamic pumps include centrifugal and special effects pumps, while rotary and reciprocating pumps fall into the displacement pump category. Centrifugal pumps are generally the most economical option, followed by rotary and reciprocating pumps. Whilst positive displacement pumps offer superior efficiencies, these are generally offset by increased maintenance costs. Ultimately, the type of pump required will be largely dictated by your application requirements.
