External Gear Pump Design:
An external gear pump is a Positive Displacement Pump with 2 side-by-side interlocking gears sets. When the gears rotate, the diverging teeth create an expanding volume which draws in fluid. The fluid is then transported around the periphery and expelled as the teeth merge.
Positive displacement, High speed.
Transmissions, hydraulics, fluid transfer.
