Does your business or industry require access to top-quality piston pumps? First, let look at what a piston pump is. At Bestline Manufacturing, we are here to answer these questions for you and provide you with a range of best quality pumps: Cat Pumps. Piston pumps are a particular type of pump that transfers liquids by means of positive displacement. They do this by making use of a plunger or a diaphragm, which are referred to as pistons to move the liquid by simply displacing it. Check valves, which are the output and input valves of a piston pump, are used to ensure that the direction in which the liquid can flow is set or limited so that it only travels in one direction, and not back and forth at will.

While shopping around for piston pumps that are ideal for your particular application, you will find that there are two main types on the market. Both types of piston pumps come in two variations; manual and engine-operated. The two types of piston pumps that you will find are:

  • Lift piston pump – with this type of pump, the water is drawn through a valve by means of an upstroke movement. The liquid is sent into the lower section of the pump’s main cylinder. Liquid can then pass through the valves during a down-stroke movement and is sent into the upper part of the pump’s main cylinder. The liquid is then expressed through a spout from the pump, with the next upstroke movement.
  • Force piston pump – with this type of pump, liquid is drawn into the pump’s main cylinder through a valve with an upstroke movement. The liquid is then expressed through a valve into an outlet pipe with a down-stroke movement.

Both lift piston pumps and force piston pumps are effective in a variety of applications and can be trusted to work continuously, reliably. At Bestline Manufacturing, we strongly recommend that you give the Cat Pumps range first priority when shopping around for piston pumps for your application.
