Pumps, Valves & Accessories info:

A pump uses pressure differentials to transport various liquids and gases from one place to another. There are two major types of pump: positive displacement pumps, which force a specific volume of fluid through a pressurized discharge channel, and rotodynamic pumps, which use rotating blades to accelerate fluid and convert its kinetic energy into pressure. Positive displacement pumps can provide continuous material flow even at different pressures, and they are used in chemical processing, beverage and liquid production, and the pharmaceutical industry. Rotodynamic, or centrifugal, pumps are generally more powerful and can be found in a wide variety of applications, including irrigation networks and sewage systems.

A valve is a mechanism for regulating the flow of liquids and gases, and it is often found in pump systems. Valves manage material flow by opening, narrowing, or closing a pipe passage. They come in a wide range of physical dimensions and properties, such as gate, plug, butterfly, check, and ball valves. They are commonly used in plumbing, sewage systems, the oil and gas industries, and numerous residential applications.


Stainless Steel Pipe Types
Stainless steel pipe comes in a variety of grades, types and categories, each of which dictate conditions for use.
Centrifugal Pumping Principles
This article explains some of the basic principles involved in centrifugal pumping systems, with a focus on centrifugal force and rotary motion devices.
Hydraulic Hoses Applications
Hydraulic hoses allow hydraulic systems extra flexibility for operation while providing protection from increased wear and abrasion.
Common Heat Pumps
The difference between three common kinds of heat pumps, air-source heat pumps, ground-source heat pumps, and absorption heat pumps, is the focus of this article.
