The information provided in this handbook is given in good faith, but Alfa Laval is not able to accept any responsibility for the accuracy of its content, or any consequences that may arise from the use of the information supplied or materials described.

Alfa Laval is an acknowledged market leader in pumping technology, supplying Centrifugal and Positive Displacement Pumps world-wide to various key application areas such as food, brewery and pharmaceutical.
There are many different definitions of this but at Alfa Laval we believe this is best described as:
‘A machine used for the purpose of transferring quantities of fluids and/or gases, from one place to another’.
This is illustrated below transferring fluid from tank A to spray nozzles B.

This pump handbook has been produced to support pump users at all levels, providing an invaluable reference tool.

Section 15: Glossary of Terms
Explains the various terms found in this handbook.

Pump types generally fall into two main categories - Rotodynamic and Positive Displacement, of which there are many forms.

The Rotodynamic pump transfers rotating mechanical energy into kinetic energy in the form of fluid velocity and pressure. The Centrifugal and Liquid Ring pumps are types of rotodynamic pump, which utilise centrifugal force to transfer the fluid being pumped.

The Rotary Lobe pump is a type of positive displacement pump, which directly displaces the pumped fluid from pump inlet to outlet in discrete volumes.
