What is difference between horizontal pump and vertical pump how we estimate which type of pump required?
hi I hope this will help you . this is some advantages for vertical pump over horizontal 1. Less floor space required. 2. Inline piping arrangement allows piping in any direction in most cases. 3. Elevated motor protects against potential flooding if the pump station is in a low area

pump is used to move liquid from one point to another, while compressor is used to compress and move gases from point to point.
Pump vs Turbine Pump and turbine are two devices that are widely used in many industries. The turbine is a device that is capable of gathering energy and converting it to w…ork. The pump is a device that is used to move fluids. Both of these devices are very important in fields such as electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, civil engineering, constructions, power generation, automobile engineering and numerous other fields. In this article, we are going to discuss what turbine and pump are, the operational principles behind turbine and pump, the types and variations of turbines and pumps, and finally the difference between turbine and pump. Pump A pump is a device that is used to move fluids. Pumps use mechanical energy to transfer these fluids. The most common example for the pump is the air compressor. It takes air from outside and transfer it to the inside overcoming the pressure of the gas inside. The pump is the device which does the work on the fluid in order to get it to a higher energy or entropy state. Most of the mechanical pumps are based on a rotary motion. There are pumps that operate on a linear motion too. Most pumps are driven by either electric motors or fuel engines. A pump does not convert energy to different forms; it rather directs the energy on a desired way. Some energy is always lost as sound, vibrations, and heat; therefore, a pump is not 100% efficient. The three main types of pumps are known as direct lift pumps, displacement pumps, and gravity pumps. Turbine A turbine is a device that is capable of absorbing energy from a given fluid stream and converting it to useful work. A turbine consists of a shaft or an axel which can be rotated around its own central cylindrical axis and blades attached to it. The blades of a turbine have the shape of the blades of a fan. An incoming fluid stream causes the axel to turn. This is the reverse process of a fan. This motion gives a uniform circular motion at the tip of the turbine. This end can be connected to a dynamo to produce energy. It can be connected to a pump to drive water from a deep well to a tank. Windmills and waterwheels are some of the oldest turbines. A turbine loses energy in the form of friction, sound, heat, and vibrations. This means the turbine is not a 100% efficient machine. What is the difference between Turbine and Pump? • A pump absorbs useful energy and converts it to kinetic energy and gives it to a fluid stream. • The turbine does the exact opposite as it absorbs energy from a fluid stream and converts it to work. • A pump increases the energy of the fluid stream whereas a turbine decreases the energy.
A centrifugal pump will typically give you a higher flow rate but a lower pressure, where a piston pump will give you more pressure but a lower flow rate.
Though these words may be used interchangeably, there is a difference. A pump is a motor designed to move fluids (whether gas or liquid). A compressor is a kind of pump that h…as a motor that forces air molecules closer together to pack more matter in a smaller volume. Gases are the only things that are compressable where pumps deal more with liquids (mainly water) although there are air pumps. More.. Pumps are used to move liquids of all kinds not just water. They can be driven by electric motors, steam turbines, wind power etc. Compressors move gasses. We sometimes use what is called a tire pump to inflate bicycle tires but it is actually a hand powered compressor.
A 'Motor' is a 'Driver'. The Electrical Energy supplied to a motor is converted to Mechanical Energy of rotation. This mechanical energy is Transferred by a shaft to Dri…ve another machine. (A vehicle engine is also called a 'Motor' as it's driving the wheels of a vehicle via a drive-shaft). A 'Pump' is a 'Driven Machine' as is a 'Compressor' or a Washing machine...etc. A Pump is also a mechanical device used to convert its Energy to that of Pressure in a liquid in order to move the liquid from a low elevation to a higher elevation or, from a low pressure system to a higher pressure system. Pumps move liquids, compressors move gases.
Pump is used to increase the pressure of incompressible fluids (i.e., density is constant for change in pressure) Compressor is used to compress the pressure of compressible… fluids (i.e.,density varies with pressure)
An axial piston pump is a positive displacement pump that has a number of pistons in a circular array within a cylinder block. It can be used as a stand-alone pump, a hydrauli…c motor or an automotive air conditioning compressor. A radial piston pump is a form of hydraulic pump. The working pistons extend in a radial direction symmetrically around the drive shaft, in contrast to the axial piston pump.
A monoblock pump is a small pump that has no base plates, couplings, or guards, which keeps it small. A centrifugal pump is larger, with added features and impellers to gi…ve the pump hydraulic lift.
it is one type of pump
Plungers and pistons for both pumps are moving inside cylinders. However, plunger pumps can handle higher pressures than piston pumps Plunger pumps more than 1000 psi.
The centrifugal pump is use to transfer a larger flow rate of liquid in a low pressure stage, while the booster pump is use to transmit less volume of liquid in a high pressur…e stage.
Based on type of working,we can define two types of pumps as below. 1. centrifugal pumps 2. piston type pumps Based on the type of casing, we can define the type of pumps as …below, 1.Horizontal casing split type 2.Vertical casing split type
The basic difference between a pump & compressor is : compressor is used to compress air at high pressure ,also when there is no load requirement .But in the other hand …pump is used to deliever fluid or water to high head or through long distance under high pressure.A pump can't be used to compress air...

TURBINES: generate electricity. use an input to obtain mechanical output. PUMPS: Basically create lift in water. Use mechanical input to create an out put
A sump pump is submerged in a pit. It keeps house from flooding. A utiliity pump is used to pump water out of already flooded house, boat, pool, tank, etc....
A major difference between lobe and gear pumps is that the rotors are designed to remain in close contact throughout rotation. By close contact, I mean that the lobes rotate a…bout one another at extremely close tolerances. Also, unlike the gear pump, the rotors of the lobe pump do not mesh
the main one is that the water pump, pumps water and the mud pump decides to pump mud.
