About Rotary and Positive Displacement Pumps
The method of operation for a Rotary / Positive Displacement pumps is also straightforward. An increasing volume is opened to suction‚ filled‚ closed‚ moved to discharge and displaced. The delivered capacity is nearly constant throughout the discharge pressure range. This constant capacity or flow will intersect a system curve at a defined point‚ allowing a high degree of system control.
Colfax offers different types of positive displacement pumps within our product portfolio including:
- 2 Screw
- 3 Screw (with seal and magnetic coupling)
- Progressive Cavity
- Peristaltic or Hose
