Gear Pumps

Gear Pumps are versatile positive displacement pumps that use the meshing of internal and/or external gears to pump fluid. With a wide viscosity and temperature range, Gear Pumps excel in high efficiency pumping of thick liquids. Typical applications include oil, syrup, resin, glycol, chocolate and similar.

Gear pumps use the meshing of gears to displace fluids. As the gears rotate, they separate at the pump inlet to create a void and suction which is filled with the fluid to be pumped. The gears rotate and carry the fluid to the outlet / discharge of the pump where the fluid is displaced as the gears mesh.

The gears and pump casing are designed to allow for very high pressures and the ability to pump very thick, viscous fluids.
