Progressive Cavity

A Look at Progressive Cavity Pumps

In most businesses, pumps are essential. If you work in an industry that needs quality pumps, you may need a progressive cavity positive displacement pump. Before you decide to move in this direction, talk to us and learn more about how they work. Our team at Vissers Sales Corp will help you understand what fluids work well with them. You can then have confidence that your PC pumps will do an effective job.

A progressive cavity positive displacement pump uses a rotor and stator assembly a cavity that draws fluid into the pump. The fluid then moves through the pump as the geometry of the rotor and stator move that cavity, progressively, through the pump. Then, the fluid exits through the discharge port.

The rotor within the PC pumps is a vital component, typically made from stainless or chrome plated steel. It is helical-shaped and, as it rotates, it creates a cavity between it and the stator. The stator plays a key role as well. It is composed of a flexible, elastomeric materials, which lets it flex as the rotor turns. It allows for space to shift as the cavity moves through the pump.

Also known as Monyo pumps, these devices do well when working with high-viscosity liquids. You will find these most often with wastewater, dealing with soft solids and sludge. These pumps also commonly help in industries that use hygienics, drum-emptying, and dosing applications.
