Pumping Mechanism - Gear Pump vs Centrifugal Pump Top of Page
    A Gear Pump is a "positive displacement" pump, unlike a centrifugal pump which is a "velocity" type pump. As the term suggests, a "velocity" type pump generates pressure and flow from the tangential and angular velocities(kinetic energy) imparted to the liquid by the speed and shape of the impeller. In a "velocity" type pump, pressure and flow can be modulated by throttling a discharge valve.

    In a gear pump, a volume of liquid is isolated in each tooth cavity. As the gears mesh, that cavity is reduced in volume. Since liquid is virtually incompressible, the reduced cavity generates pressure nearly independently of the gear speed and forces the liquid out the discharge port. Therefore, with a gear pump flow is relatively constant over varying pressures and throttling a discharge valve will not appreciably affect flow rate. To alter the flowrate with a gear pump, the RPM of the pump must change.

    Since the means of generating pressure and flow in "positive displacement" pumps is by compressing a nearly incompressible liquid, extremely high pressures can be generated very rapidly in closed discharge piping. Therefore, it is highly recommended that a pressure relief valve be inserted in the discharge piping, upstream of the first potential blockage (closed valve, pipe obstruction).

Design Advantages of Dynaflow Engineering Alloy Gear 

Pumps

Top of Page
Our gear pumps incorporate design features that will extend their accuracy, reliability, and maintainability over many years of service.

FACT:  Our pump housings are machined from bar stock and are thick walled. Many competiitors use cast housings, which require thinner wall designs to minimize shrinkage and cracking upon cooling.

RESULT: Our pumps can handle higher system pressures. Additionally, they provide a greater safeguard against unforeseen pitting and general corrosive attack.

FACT: Our G3000 and higher series of gear pumps utilize two housings to retain the bearings, shafts, gears, and wearplates. Competitive pumps utilize three or more housings.

RESULT: With two precisely machined housings, the probability of bearing misalignment and accelerated wear is greatly reduced.   

 
G3000 & G6000 Series Housings

FACT: Our pumps utilize an integral, one piece drive shaft and drive gear machined from bar stock. Competitive pumps, employing an alloy drive gear, typically slide the gear onto the drive shaft.

RESULT: The one piece drive shaft and drive gear provide improved concentricity over the two piece assembly. This provides quieter running and extended gear life.

 
Integral Drive Shaft/Gear

FACT: Our plastic idler gear is thermally secured to the idler shaft without keying. It is then machined as an integral unit.

RESULT: This construction provides improved concentricity over keyed gearing. Additionally, stress risers, which are induced in keyed gearing and which may lead to fatigue failure, are substantially reduced in our design. RESULT

 
Integral Idler Shaft/Gear

FACT: Our typical configuration consists of an alloy drive gear mated to an engineered plastic idler gear.

RESULT: With two dissimilar gear materials exhibiting substantially different hardnesses, a non-lubricating liquid can be pumped at high speeds without galling or frictional drag. In utilizing  engineered plastics, wear of the idler gear is minimized. FF

 
Alloy Gear Mated to Plastic Gear

FACT: Our inner magnet assemblies (foreground) use high strength rare earth magnets, permitting compact designs that generate high torque.

RESULT: Our inner magnet assemblies minimize inertial loading on start up and loading on the bearings.

FACT: Our containment cans, which encompass the inner magnet assemblies, are compact as well. They are also relatively thick walled.

RESULT: As pressure vessels, our smaller containment cans will withstand higher internal pressures at lower stress levels than larger size cans. Additionally, they provide a greater safeguard against unforeseen pitting and general corrosive attack.

Metering With A Gear Pump Top of Page

     As "Positive Displacement" pumps, gear pumps can provide relatively constant flow over a wide range of pressures.

 

    When mounted to a variable speed motor and controller, a gear pump offers several advantages over "reciprocating type" metering pumps. Unlike the aforementioned pumps, gear pumps offer non-pulsating flow. Piping is simplified, because pulsation dampeners and back pressure valves are not required. Liquids, which have a tendency to "gas off", create priming difficulties with the "reciprocating type" pumps. Since gear pumps are inherently self priming and their non-pulsating flow does not agitate the liquid, they may be better choices for these applications.

 

Metering System: Ext. Signal Capable

 

 

    Metering with gear pumps can be adjusted by manual and by external means, such as a 4-20 mAmp signal.

 

    The simple construction of our gear pumps afford long term reliability. Additionally, our gear pumps with variable speed motors and controllers are very cost competitive.
