Fluids with low viscosity tend to have low resistance. They shear easily and their molecules flow quickly, which can make them easy to pump and process.

High viscosity fluids, on the other hand, are the opposite. They move slowly and don't deform easily. Some even tend to behave more like solids than liquids, which can become a problem for pumping.

When referring to flow rate in a pump, you are looking to find the volume of liquid that travels through the pump in a certain amount of time, often measured in milliliters per minute. Different applications will require different flow rates — and it's crucial to select a pump that can meet your specific needs. In this post, we'll take a closer look at how to select the right pump for flow rate, what to look for, mistakes to avoid, and more.

Frequent jams, busted pistons, blown seals and material degradation are all things to be avoided with any pump you purchase. But if you fail to ensure your pump is crafted from the right materials based on the chemicals and fluids it's intended to work with, that's exactly what might happen, halting productivity and incurring additional expenses. In this post, we'll take a closer look at just why pump materials are so important.
