Advantages of Using Positive Displacement Pump

Across many industries, positive displacement pumps are utilized for their accuracy, reliability and versatility, Being able to handle a variety of liquids at different viscosities, it is no wonder that industries such as food and beverage, chemical processing, and pharmaceuticals all utilize positive displacement pumps in their manufacturing processes. These industries all rely on supreme accuracy and consistency in their dosing mechanisms, and a positive displacement pump allows for that in a reliable package.

Positive displacement pumps operate through the separation and enclosure of a fixed amount of liquid volume, which is then mechanically transported and pumped through an outlet valve. This operational design makes positive displacement pumps ideal for industries that rely on exact dosage, such as the pharmaceutical, food and beverage, and chemical processing industries mentioned above.

Another key advantage to the positive displacement pump design is its ability to produce the same flow speed no matter what level the discharge pressure is at, unlike centrifugal pumps that are designed to react to changes in pressure. Also, unlike centrifugal pumps, positive displacement pumps do not rely on specific levels of pressure for efficiency and peak operational success.
