Progressive Cavity Pumps

Progressive Cavity Pumps, also known as PCPs or eccentric screw pumps, are a type of positive displacement pump renowned for their ability to handle a wide range of viscous fluids with precision and efficiency. The design consists of a helical rotor that rotates within a resilient stator, creating a progressing cavity that gently moves fluid from the pump inlet to the discharge in a continuous, smooth flow. 

Applications Across Industries:

Discover the versatility of Progressive Cavity Pumps across various industries:

  • Oil and Gas: Ideal for pumping heavy crude oil, drilling mud, and other challenging substances encountered in the extraction and processing of oil and gas.

  • Wastewater Treatment: Efficiently handles sludge, sewage, and other viscous fluids in wastewater treatment plants, ensuring reliable and consistent pumping.

  • Food Processing: Well-suited for transferring viscous food products, such as sauces, creams, and pastes, maintaining product integrity and hygiene standards.

  • Chemical Processing: Handles abrasive and corrosive fluids with precision, making it a crucial component in chemical processing industries.

  • Mining: Used for transporting thick slurries and abrasive materials encountered in mining operations.

  • Biogas Production: Plays a vital role in pumping various organic materials in biogas production processes, contributing to sustainable energy solutions.

Advantages of Progressive Cavity Pumps:

  • Versatility: Capable of handling fluids with varying viscosities, from thin liquids to highly viscous substances.

  • Gentle Handling: The smooth, pulsation-free flow is ideal for shear-sensitive fluids, ensuring the integrity of the pumped material.

  • Efficiency: Provides a constant and non-pulsating flow, reducing the need for additional equipment and promoting energy efficiency.

  • Self-Priming: Capable of self-priming, eliminating the need for manual priming and making them suitable for applications with suction lift requirements.

  • Low Maintenance: With fewer moving parts and simple designs, PCPs are known for their reliability and ease of maintenance.
