In piston pump, the motion and pressure are applied to the fluid by a reciprocating piston in a cylinder. It is also known as reciprocating pump. There are two types of piston pump design: the axial piston pump and the radial piston pump. The basic piston pump is very simple having just two valves and one stuffing box. This piston pump uses suction to raise water into the chamber. The piston must be within about 25 feet of the water level, but the water can then be raised quite high.
Piston Ring is an open-ended ring that fits into a groove on the outer diameter of a piston in an internal combustion engine. The three main functions of piston rings in internal combustion engines are sealing the combustion chamber, supporting heat transfer from the piston to the cylinder wall and regulating motor oil consumption. Piston pins are made of alloy steel with a precision finish and are case hardened & chromium plated to increase the wearing qualities.
Piston seals are used for linear and reciprocating dynamic sealing applications. Its design ensures a high static seal force on the inside diameter of the seal, which adds stability and helps to limit the rocking motion of the seal as the piston cycles, and in turn, can reduce fluid seepage.
