Plunger Pumps Introduction

  • In a plunger pump (also known as a positive displacement pump) a smooth cylindrical plunger slides through the seal and high pressure seal is stationary.
  • Seals are an essential part of plunger pumps to separate the power fluid from the media that is being pumped.
  • Plunger pumps are used in those industries where pressure on liquid is very high. This characteristic makes plunger pumps different from piston pumps. Plunger pumps are essentially used to transfer industrial and municipal sewage.
  • The global plunger pumps market is predicted to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period owing to increased demand for plunger pumps in different industries such as paper and pulp, water treatment, and marine.
  • The plunger pump generates maximum pressure of 3500 bar and flow rates up to 209 m3/h per pump. Performance range for plunger pumps is 0.13 gpm to 240 gpm (0.49 to 908 lpm) and 100 psi to 10,000 psi (6.9 bars to 689 bars).
  • In plunger pumps, the component materials are available in iron, nickel, aluminum, bronze, 316 and 304 stainless steel, brass, duplex stainless steel, and nickel alloy.
  • In terms of application of plunger pumps, water treatment, construction, and power generation are projected to register highest growth during the forecast period.
