EN VIDEO Different Types of Pump Different Types of Pump


A pump is a mechanical device that produces the flow of a fluid by transforming the energy supplied by a motor into hydraulic energy. The first criterion for choosing a pump is surely the type of fluid involved. The technical characteristics of the fluid must be taken into account as they will determine the choice of the pump.

Then, in order to properly size the machine and calculate the operating point of the pump, it is necessary to know the network parameters such as: flow rate, suction height, discharge height, pressure drops, etc.

This guide will give you an overview of the main types of pumps and typical cases of their use. On the other hand, in this section we will not deal with hydraulic pumps (in other words power pumps) nor vacuum pumps. These two products, which differ by application and technology, are presented and offered separately.
How to choose a pump?

In order to be able to choose a pump that meets your needs, you must determine its characteristics according to its use.

First of all, you must therefore consider the type of fluid that must be transferred in order to avoid corrosion phenomena and consequently the premature wear of your pump. It is therefore fundamental to know the chemical composition of the fluid to be pumped, its viscosity and the possible presence of solid components. A thorough knowledge of all the physical properties of the fluid being handled will allow you to choose the ideal technology for your application and the materials of construction compatible with the fluid being pumped. There are chemical compatibility tables to consult before choosing the body of your pump.
