We are living in an age where everything and everyone is heavily dependent on machines. Automation and mechanization are realities that anyone can hardly deny. Whether we like it or not, there is no avoiding the fact that we have started relying more on technology than on ourselves. Everything, starting from something as simple like as an alarm clock, to something as complex a computer – bears the testament of the fact that we are almost dysfunctional without the help of some kind of technology. And when exactly did we become so dependent on technology. Actually this started a longs time back, from the moment man created fire by rubbing two stones together. Since then science has worked incessantly towards improving the ways and condition of human sustenance. It is the convenience that technology entails that has made our survival easier and luxury a possibility. Now, we have come a long way from being cave dwellers and are on our way to explore more and more mysteries of the universe. It has all been possible because of the scientific advancements. We are now living in a global village where every communication is facilitated by technology, where all industries are connected by it.
Whether it is mining or pharmaceutical industry, the agriculture or construction industry, the food industry or fashion industry – every sector has been revolutionized by the latest technological breakthroughs. Manufacturing and production works have become double in amount and ten times faster. Constructions that were previously thought to be a dreamer’s imagination are now realities! The cost of labor and the time required in different kinds of job have been cut down to half and the quality has also surpassed the quality of those that were produced before.
Among all the machines that are used by every industrial sector, pump has to be the one that gives the maximum output, and is thus understandably the most used one. Of course there are various kinds of these automations which function in different ways and are thus suitable for different industries. One of the most important of these kinds is the progressive cavity pumps. These are often referred to as the eccentric screw pumps or simply the cavity ones. It is actually a device which enables the movement of a fluid through a sequence of little chambers, otherwise known as cavities with the help of a moving rotor. Such machines make it possible for the liquid to be passed and discharged at a controlled pace and under constant pressure. These types of automations have a number of applications, but most importantly for drilling for oil, water, and natural gas.
Nowadays, the food grade pumps and the mag drive pumps are also used widely. These are generally self priming and dry running peristaltic machines and thus are very easy to use. The chances of downtime are also decreased and therefore losses are minimal. They are easy to maintain and are highly durable too. Efficiency, reliability and safety – these are the qualities that make these machines so widely popular.
