Reciprocating Pump Parts
The reciprocating cylinder is a hollow tube that houses the plunger as it moves back and forth.
The pump cylinder is a primary part of a reciprocating pump. A cylindrical chamber houses the plunger, which moves back and forth to generate the pumping action. The pump stuffing box is made of high-strength steel or materials that can operate at high pressures and temperatures.
In a reciprocating pump, the plunger is the main moving component. Visually it looks like a cylinder, it fits inside the pump stuffing box and is attached to the piston rod. As the piston rod moves back and forth, the plunger moves along with it, generating the pumping action. Plunger are constructed from durable materials like high-strength steel.
The connecting rod is a piece that links the piston rod to the crankshaft.
The piston rod is a long, cylindrical piece that connects the plunger to the crankshaft. As the crankshaft rotates, the piston rod moves back and forth, causing the piston to move inside the pump stuffing box.
The crankshaft is a central component of a reciprocating pump. It is a long, shaft-like piece that rotates to provide the driving force for the piston rod. The crankshaft is made of high-strength steel and is a part that needs to withstand the extreme forces generated by the pumping process.
The suction and discharge valves at the top and bottom of the cylinder open and close to allow fluid to enter and exit the cylinder.
A RECIPROCATING PUMP IS A MECHANICAL PUMP THAT USES A
RECIPROCATING MOTION TO MOVE FLUIDS OR GASSES.
Deciding between a cartridge seal and a standard OEM component seal comes down to cost and the skills of the seal installer. Installation is usually not a concern if a trained and knowledgeable technician services a pump with stable operating conditions. However, emergencies can occur and seal replacement under those conditions becomes more challenging and costly.
