Process fluid transfer
In process industries, fluid transfer systems play a critical role. Pump system design dictates the transfer performance which relies mainly on the fluid characteristics. Pumps come in a variety of sizes for a wide range of applications. They can be classified according to their basic operating principle as dynamic or displacement pumps. Dynamic pumps can be sub-classified as centrifugal and special effect pumps. Displacement pumps can be sub-classified as rotary or reciprocating pumps.
