It is often referred to as a “gear water pump” but a gear pump can transport a wide variety of viscous fluids, too. Gear pumps have one gear or a pair of gears that rotate, creating suction and transporting fluids into the intake part of the pump. The gears physically transport the fluids to the discharge end of the pump.
There are numerous tweaks and variations but these are the basics of how a gear pump works.
General applications of gear pumps include hydraulic pumps and petrochemical solutions for crude oil, lube oil, diesel oil, pitch and bitumen. Gear pumps are also used for chemicals such as acids, mixed chemicals, plastics, isocyanates and sodium silicate.
Gear pumps are also used for print, ink, adhesives, resins and many chemicals used for processing pulp and paper, including sludge, latex, lime, kaolin, black liquor, lye, acid and soap. In the food industry, they are used for cacao butter, chocolate, sugar, fillers, fats, vegetable oils, animal food, molasses and similar foods.
