Gear Pumps for Sale Online
A gear pump is designed to transport fluid through interlocking gears or cogs. It moves fluid smoothly, with the rate of movement dependent on the speed of the gears. The rotation of the gears creates a seal with the casing of the pump, causing suction to develop at the pump inlet. This fluid then moves through gears and out through the discharge.
There are two main types of gear pumps – external and internal. Here’s a quick look at each type.
- External gear pumps – This type of pump features two gears, one of which is attached to a motor, which drives the other gear. There are some pumps where both gears are driven by separate motors. Bearings on each side of the casing support the shafts. The gears trap incoming fluid, which then moves from the inlet into the discharge portion. Suction at the inlet keeps fluid from leaking from the discharge area. However, if low viscosity liquids are used, some leaking can occur. External gear pumps are typically used in tractors, dump trucks
- Internal gear pumps – While these operate on the same principle as external gear pumps, there are some differences. The gears are different sizes, and one gear rotates inside of the other one.
External gear pumps can handle pressures up to 3,000 PSI because their shafts are stronger. Internal gear pumps, on the other hand, are better suited for higher viscosity liquids because they have superior suctioning capabilities. Gear pumps in general do a better job of handling “aggressive,” or corrosive, liquids than other types of pumps.
