Piston Pump Design

Product Announcement from Simerics, Inc.

Piston Pump Design-Image

PumpLinx, when used for designing piston pumps, addresses design issues with cylinder head design, inlet/outlet port design, and valve plate design.

The benefits from addressing these design issues are:

  • Leakage reduction
  • Reduce cavitation effects on efficiency and pump life
  • Reduce pressure ripple and noise

PumpLinx: Solve Flows, Pressures, Cavitation, and Loads:


  • Models cavitation
  • Able to accommodate very high pressures
  • Ability to model micron scale leak paths
  • Superior treatment of rotating-stationary interfaces
  • Ease-of-use
  • Fast turn-around
