A pump is a mechanical device that transports media by transforming the energy supplied by a motor into hydraulic energy.
The first criterion for choosing a pump is the type of media concerned. The technical characteristics of the media must be taken into account because they will determine the choice of pump.
Then, in order to properly dimension the machine and calculate the operating point of the pump, it is necessary to know the parameters of the network such as: flow rate, suction head, discharge head, head losses, etc.
This guide will give you an overview of the main types of pumps and the typical situations in which they are used.
We do not, however, deal with hydraulic pumps (also known as power pumps) or vacuum pumps in this section. These two products, which differ in application and technology, are presented and offered separately.
