Use of Reciprocating pump in a different field

Mainly reciprocating pumps are mostly used where a precise amount of fluid needs to be delivered where the required delivery pressure can be obtained from many other types!


In a reciprocating pump, fluid or liquid is sent through a piston inside a cylinder. The piston moves the cylinder downwards after being drawn into the cylinder through the inlet valve in the pump. As the piston moves up the cylinder, this liquid is discharged at a pre-set pressure, which is controlled by the discharge valve.

The fluid or fluid is discharged from the cylinder to the pipe system that enters a suction pipe and delivery pipe, in which case some support may be required to hold down on the piping system above both the suction and discharge sides of the pump.


The three parts of reciprocating pumps are a piston second plunger and the third diaphragm. Typically piston pumps are used where moderate to high delivery pressures are required!


 Second plunger pump experiments are commonly used to measure a liquid or liquid substance. A variable speed drive or stroke adjustment mechanism is provided to change the speed of the fluid to the desired form!

 And the third diaphragm pumps which are always air-driven and very compact, with no one coming in contact with the seal or pumping of the packing fluid, make them ideal for handling hazardous or toxic liquids. ! They are sometimes used to pump sump out.


Reciprocating pumps choke and pump water or liquids in constant quantities. The continuous flow of the liquid does not affect the pressure. These pumps always provide the same capacitance due to which any attempt to throttle the pump casing and discharge pipe can put more pressure on the pump. In this way, no reciprocating pump should ever be started or operated by closing the discharge valve! Any flow is controlled by speed. In many cases where discharge throttle valves are required, an automatic bypass valve is provided which is piped back to the suction source or well.


Know about Reciprocating pump Flow characteristics

Any reciprocating pump has a vibratory discharge. This is the result of a piston motion piston turns upside down! At that time the speed from that piston becomes completely zero. Such are the subsistence curves as a function, having two or more pistons can smooth the pulsation of the discharge from the pump! But the magnitude of the pulsing decreases! These are for big pulsing pumps! The accumulator can be used in the delivery line to reduce or eliminate flutter!
