The Internal Gear Pump
The internal gear pump uses two rotating gears which un-mesh at the suction side of the pump to create voids which allow atmospheric pressure to force fluid into the pump. The spaces between the gear teeth transport the fluid on either side of a crescent to the discharge side, and then the gears re-mesh to discharge the fluid. Viking's internal gear design has an outer drive gear (rotor- shown in orange) which turns the inner, driven gear (idler-shown in white).
Universal Seal Series Internal Gear Pump
The Universal Seal series pumps are similar to the Heavy Duty series, offering thrust control and adjustable rotor clearances to compensate for wear and viscosity.
An enlarged bearing housing at the rear of the pump provides easy drive-end access, and accepts various sealing options including:
- component mechanical seals
- cartridge single-mechanical seals
- cartridge double-mechanical seals, and
- cartridge triple-lip seals.
This allows drive-end access for maintenance or replacement of cartridge seals without opening the head and pulling the rotor/shaft. Some sizes also offer behind-the-rotor component mechanical seals.
Ports are available in a variety of 90- and 180-degree configurations. Integral pressure relief valves are standard.
External Gear Pumps
The external gear pumping principle uses two rotating gears which unmesh at the suction side of the pump to create voids which allow atmospheric pressure to force fluid into the pump. The spaces between the gear teeth transport the fluid along the outer perimeter of the housing to the discharge side, and then the gears re-mesh at the center to discharge the fluid. The gears are supported by bearings on both sides, which allows high discharge pressure capabilities.
