What is a pump?


“A pump is a device that moves fluids (liquids or gases), or sometimes slurries, by mechanical action, typically converted from electrical energy into Hydraulic energy. It can expends energy in order to raise, transport, or compress fluids.

The earliest pumps were devices for raising water, such as the Persian and Roman waterwheels and the more sophisticated Archimedes screw ( q.v.).

Basic Types:

Pumps can be classified into three major groups according to the method they use to move the fluid: direct lift, displacement, and gravity pumps.

Pumps operate via many energy sources, including manual operation, electricity, engines, or wind power, etc.,


It is used to pick up water from low-pressure level to high-pressure level. The pump changes the energy flow from mechanical to the fluid. This can be used in process operations that need a high hydraulic force.” For more information regarding Pumps, it’s usages, and how to select which types of pumps for your requirements, you can ask experts at Tftpumps.com.
