Rotodynamic pump


Rotodynamic pump

A rotodynamic pump is a type of pump in which the dynamic motion of a fluid is increased by pump action, in contrast to a positive displacement pump in which a fluid is moved by trapping a fixed amount of fluid and forcing the trapped volume into the pump's discharge. Examples of rotodynamic pumps include adding kinetic energy to a fluid such as by using a centrifugal pump to increase fluid velocity or pressure.
