Learn about the different types of barrel pumps, including electric barrel pumps and air piston barrel pumps, and how they can be used for various applications.
Barrel pumps can be used for many different materials such as chemicals, oils, fuels, foodstuffs and other liquids.
Barrel pumps have a moving part, such as a piston, diaphragm, or rotor, to remove the fluid. By turning a lever or mechanism located at the top of the pump, the moving parts absorb the liquid in the barrel and transfer it to the outside.
Types of barrel pumps include:
- Lever Pumps: Lever pumps use a piston system to draw fluid. To operate the pump, it is necessary to turn a lever and this action draws the liquid into the chamber inside the piston. Then the liquid is transferred through the pipe or hose.
- Diaphragm Pumps: Diaphragm pumps use a diaphragm to suck up liquid. The diaphragm is located inside a pump body and is moved up and down by a mechanism. This action allows the diaphragm to absorb fluid and then expel it.
- Rotor Pumps: Rotor pumps use a rotating rotor to suck up liquid. The impellers of the rotor act to absorb the liquid and then transfer it to the outside via pipe or hose.
- Electric Drum Pumps: Electric drum pumps are powered by electric motors to suck up and transfer fluid to the outside. These pumps work faster and more efficiently than other types of drum pumps.
Barrel pumps are used in many different industrial applications. For example, they are used in the chemical industry, food industries, automotive industries, mining industries, petrochemical industries, garden irrigation systems and many more.
