Gear Pump

Gear Pump in Louisiana, Georgia, Florida, Ohio, the Caribbean & More

Gear PumpA gear pump is unique for its ability to pump high-viscosity substances at high temperatures and at high pressures. Any combination of these conditions can cause centrifugal pumps to fail, but gear pumps are built with special materials and designs to overcome these extreme applications. A gear pump moves fluid by displacement using a consistent rotation of meshing gears for an effect not unlike a water wheel. The rotations of the gears and their tight clearances prevent leaks while keeping substances moving forward.
Gear pumps are often used to lubricate machine tools and pump oil through engines. Different models of gear pumps can handle various capacities of fluid, and these pumps are also available with single or double gear configurations. They can’t handle solids, but they’ll effectively pump a wide range of substances such as:

  • Mixed chemicals
  • Petrochemicals
  • Adhesives
  • Pulp and paper
  • Paint and ink
  • Some types of food ingredients
