Cutaway Gear Pumps
Gear pumps are a type of positive displacement pump that use two ether externally or internally interlocking gear which force fluid out of the pump outlet as the gears mesh. One of the gears is the drive gear and the second is known as the idler.
Gear pumps are commonly used in hydraulic power and chemical applications where fluids are highly viscous.
The CPU-IG and CPU-EG cutaway internal and external gear pumps use new industrial gear pumps, cut away to clearly show the inlet, outlet, gears and seals, allowing students to easily visualise pump operation and identify the main pump components.
