Gear pumps are positive displacement rotary pumps used to transport high pressure and high volume flows. They function through the use of two or more internal gears that create vacuum pressure, propelling the fluid media. Typically a rotating assembly includes a driving gear and a driven gear. As each tooth of the gear makes contact, the load moves to the next tooth and fluid moves with each contact. Internal gear pumps or “gear within a gear” pumps may have their smaller gear turning in the same direction as the larger gear, creating suction to move the pumped fluid media. At various points during the process of turning, the gears create a seal between the inlet and outlet sides of the rotation assembly chamber or body.
Gear pumps provide a comparably continuous, non-pulsating flow in relation to diaphragm pumps or peristaltic pumps. For this reason, gear pumps may be preferred in a number of applications from laboratory to petrochemical and marine applications, and processes involving hydraulic presses and dry pit steam power.
Gear pumps are reliable when using media with heavier viscosities, however, build up or interference within the internal mechanisms may cause the gears to rotate more slowly. The addition of a pressure relief valve to the system may help to alleviate some of this slow down, and provide a longer life cycle as well.
