Types of pumps
Pumps are used in different circumstances to exert pressure or provide force that is required to
move fluids either gases or liquids. Pumps can be used in various ways and places for instance in
industries, agriculture and machinery. Specific brands exist for specific jobs hence others can only
be used in agricultural purposes and not in industries but then other common brands like the
hydraulic pumps can be used in various occasions in agriculture; the most common types of
pumps used are semi rotary, reciprocating and hydraulic pumps among others. These pumps are
used in lifting water from one point to another. For lifting water purposes, the mode of existence
can be either lift pumps or force pumps.
Generally, some pumps are versatile and will be included in one category while others are
designed for a specific purpose hence is also grouped in other Categories. These categories
include; air conditioning, bilge, centrifugal, hand, drum, flexible impeller, fire control, water
circulating, metering, engine cooling, utility! General use, sanitary, stainless steel, water pressure
and submersible pumps. Example of brands in these pump categories are: proven, rule,
Shenivood, shurflo, cal, detroit diesel, flojet, flotec, globe impellers, onan, oberdorfer, northern
lights, and Johnson pumps among others. Operation of pumps is by some mechanisms typically
reciprocating or rotary. They consume energy in performing this mechanical work of moving
fluids and other slurries. By methods used in movement of these fluids, pumps can be classified
in three broad categories as gravity, displacement and direct lift pumps. Energy sources essential
in operation of pumps are electric power, wind power, energy generated by engines and also
In agriculture, mechanical pumps are used in pumping water from wells for use for irrigation
purposes, aeration and filtering of ponds in aquaculture (may also include aeration of aquarium
where ponds are not involved). Operation of farm machines and feeding and handling of farm
animals where water is required can involve use of pumps. Pumps can also be used in medical
industries in developing and manufacturing medicines. Only pumps of specific brands are
recommended for these biochemical procedures. Other general functions of pumps include
pumping oil, cooling towers, pumping natural gas, and fuel injection. Where no specificity is
required utility or general use pumps are applicable but for other specific reasons a brand
suitable for a given purpose is recommended. One can therefore purchase a pump of choice by
first regarding the category for that specific pump and then narrowing down to a given brand.
