What is an Industrial Pump? Industrial pumps are used to move fluid in an industrial application. There are dozens of different industrial applications a several types of industrial pump designs to fit the requirements.
Centrifugal pumps are used often in industrial applications. These pumps use a rotating impeller to accelerate a fluid and increase its pressure. There are dozens of industrial centrifugal pumps including slurry pumps, chopper pumps, sewage pumps, vertical turbine pumps, axial flow pumps and more.
In addition, rotary and reciprocating positive displacement pumps are often used in industrial applications to move fluids at steady flow rates with high pressure. Specifically, screw pumps, progressive cavity pumps, lobe pumps, gear pumps, diaphragm pumps, and peristaltic pumps are considered industrial PD pumps.
