The progressive cavity pump is a volumetric, self-priming, rotary positive displacement device.The “pumping” part consists of two elements, the rotor and the stator.The rotor, typically metallic, is single or multiple screw with a rounded thread, extremely large pitch, considerable length and high eccentricity in relation to the core diameter.
The stator, typically elastomeric, is embedded with a cavity in the shape of a two or multiple screws, double threaded, compared to the rotor, and with the same eccentricity.
The rotor, rotating within the stator, is forced to perform a hypocycloid roto-translational movement that forces the fluid with a helical movement from the suction casing to the delivery casing.
Progressive Cavity Pump Characteristics
- Uniform flow proportional to the speed.
- Self-priming with a maximum suction lift capacity up to 8 mWC (NPSH), depending on the size, the number of stages and pump speed.
- Capacity to pump heterogeneous products, containing gases, solid, abrasive and fibrous materials in the liquid matrix.
- Pumping of liquids with low or high viscosity.
- Liquid dosing capacity.
- Pulse-free pumping with minimum tensile strain of the product being processed.
- High pumping pressure (6 bar per stage). Pumps are available with one to eight stages, depending on the required pressure.
