Working principle and structure of external gear pump

Working principle and structure of external gear pump

Answer:

The principle of the gear pump, gear pump structure consists of two gear mesh together with each other, and composed of pumps known as gear pumps. It relies on the gear teeth meshing space change in volume to transport the liquid, it belongs to the rotary pump, also can be considered as a volume pump. There are many kinds of gear pumps. According to the meshing mode, it can be divided into external gear pump and internal gear pump. According to the tooth shape of gear, it can be divided into positive gear pump, helical gear pump and herringbone gear pump.

External gear pump is the most widely used gear pump, the general gear pump usually refers to the external gear pump. Its structure as shown in the diagram, there are mainly driving gear, driven gear, pump body, pump cover and safety valve and so on. The seal space of pump body, pump cover and gear is the workshop of gear pump. The wheel shafts of the two gears are respectively arranged in the bearing holes on the two pump cover, and the driving gear shaft extends out of the pump body and is driven by the motor to rotate. The external gear pump is simple in structure, light in weight, low in cost, reliable in operation and wide in application. When the gear pump works, the driving wheel rotates with the motor and drives the driven wheel to rotate

When the meshing teeth on one side of the suction chamber are gradually separated, the volume of the suction chamber is increased, and the pressure is lowered, and the liquid in the suction pipe is sucked into the pump; the suction liquid is divided into two parts to be pushed into the discharge chamber by the gear in the alveolus. When the liquid enters the exhaust chamber, the liquid is squeezed and discharged from the exhaust chamber into the discharge pipe because the teeth of the two gears are continuously engaged. The driving gear and the driven gear keep rotating, and the pump can continuously inhale and discharge the liquid. The pump body is equipped with a safety valve, when the discharge pressure exceeds the required pressure, the delivery liquid can automatically open the safety valve, so that the high-pressure liquid returns to the suction pipe.
