Pumps are machines designed to move liquids from one location to another by converting energy from a power source to the liquid. The types of pumps used in different applications depend on the consistency and uniformity of the liquid being transferred.
There are several types of pumps, including compressors, blowers and fans, which increase the pressure of liquids in the gas phase. Positive displacement or volumetric pumps transfer liquids mechanically, while kinetic pumps charge energy to liquids through a twirling propeller. Commonly used types of pumps include centrifugal, piston, gear, screw, diaphragm, chamber and propeller pumps, which are used in various industries.
