Stainless Steel Pumps for Sale

How Do Pumps Work?

Zwirner Equipment Company carries a large inventory of stainless steel pumps from a number of different manufacturers. A pump is a device that raises, compresses or moves fluids by mechanical action. Mechanical pumps can be submerged or placed external to the fluid they are pumping and have a wide variety of applications in several industries.

There are two basic types of pumps: centrifugal and positive displacement. Centrifugal pumps are relatively simple in their design and work by using the kinetic energy of a motor to move liquids. They have a high flow rate and mixing potential and are most suitable for low-viscosity products such as water, milk or juice. Centrifugal pumps are quite small compared to other types of pumps and provide more flexibility for industrial or household use.

Positive displacement pumps move fluids by repeatedly enclosing a fixed amount and displacing that trapped volume through the system into the discharge pipe. They can operate at high pressures and at relatively low flows more efficiently than other types of pumps and are most suitable for high-viscosity products such as cottage cheese, peanut butter or sour cream. Positive displacement pumps are typically more complex than other types of pumps, but they are better suited for applications that require high pressure outputs and accurate dosing.
