Reciprocating pump is a positive displacement pump with plunger pump, diaphragm pump, and piston pump where certain volume of liquid is collected in enclosed volume and is discharged using pressure to the required application. These pumps are most suitable for low volumes of flow at high pressures. Reciprocating pump is also known as constant volume pump.
The working principle of Reciprocating pumps that when vacuum is created then the piston moves left at the time of suction stroke and due to increase pressure in cylinder, suction valve get close and through delivery pipe water is delivered. Reciprocating pump is widely used for the pneumatic pressure systems, light oil pumping, feeding small boilers, and oil drilling operations, salt water disposal.
- Reciprocating pumps have high efficiency as compared to other pump.
- Reciprocating pump have optimum flow with smooth movement.
- These pumps are with high pressure and low flow applications.
- Pumps are durable and rugged design.
Reciprocating Pumps are suitable for Pharmaceutical, Chemical, Food and beverage, Oil and gas, Cosmetic industries.
