Idex’s Rotary Gear Pumps: Ideal solution for Viscous Fluids

Centrifugal pumps are mostly suitable for low viscosity fluids as it suffers from friction losses when viscosity of the fluid increases. Rotary Gear Pumps are positive displacement pumps wherein the fluid displacement takes place in between the space between two gears due to meshing of gears and are ideal solution for displacement of highly viscous fluid. The two meshing gears are known as rotor and idler & rotor which is connected to the shaft rotates the idler. The liquid is drawn from the inlet port into the space between the two gears and as the gear mesh, the space between the two gears gets closed thereby discharging the fluid via discharge port. The gears can be arranged internally as well as externally in the pump.
