Gear pump specifications
Gear pumps are compact and simple pumps with a limited number of moving parts. Although they do not match the pressure produced by reciprocating pumps or the flow rates of centrifugal pumps, they offer higher pressure and efficiency than valve pumps. Gear pumps are specially designed for pumping oils and other high viscosity liquids. Gear pumps are generally used for metering and mixing operations. They can be designed to handle aggressive fluids. They are usually made of cast iron or stainless steel.
What are the uses of gear pumps?
Gear pumps are commonly used to pump high viscosity liquids such as oil, paints, resins or foodstuffs. They can be preferred in any application where accurate dosing or high pressure output is required. The output of a gear pump is largely unaffected by pressure; therefore, they can be preferred in every situation where the feeding is irregular.
