Product Announcement from GRI Pumps (Gorman-Rupp Industries)
Oscillating pumps are self-priming, corrosion resistant, have no dynamic seals and are constructed from FDA accepted materials.
Oscillating Pump Operation:
An elastomeric impeller extends through a spring and armature and into an electric coil. A diode in the circuit feeds impulses to the electrical coil 60 times per second. Each pulse draws the armature and impeller forward against the spring, causing the impeller to pump a volume of liquid out through the outlet port. The spring then returns the armature and impeller to their starting position, drawing liquid through the inlet. A valve in the impeller prevents backflow of liquid.
- Flow Rates — Generally range from 0.2 to 0.8 gpm. Flow rates may vary from pump to pump. Due to this inherent characteristic, these pumps are not normally intended for metering.
