centrifugal pump uses centrifugal action while reciprocati pump operates on resiprocating motion of piston
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.
Thanks for the feedback!

What is the differences between positive displacement pump and centrifugal pump?

Pumps -- Centrifugal vs. Positive Displacemen    Two Categories -- Kinetic (Centrifugal) and Positive Displacement   There are two main categories of pumps - kinetic a

If you closed the outlet valve of centrifugal pump not damage pump but why damage reciprocating pump.?

When you close the outlet valve of the centrifugal pump, you stop the flow out of the pump, which causes the measurable pressure in parts of the pump volute to go up. However

Difference between single stage and multi stage centrifugal pump?

You should think of a multistage pump as a series of single stage pumps all mounted on one shaft with a single large case that holds all of them. As with all centrifugal pum

Difference between centrifugal compressor and reciprocating compressor?

Reciprocating and centrifugal pumps serve different purposes and operate with separate functions. Centrifugal pumps transport huge amounts of liquid at a time, but the level a

Comparison between centrifugal compressor and reciprocating compressor?

A compressor is a piece of equipment that compresses gas either to transfer to a specific location or for a certain process requirement. Compressor are manufactured depending

What is difference between centrifuge and ultra-centrifuge?

centrifugation machines spin a sample at up to somewhere around the 2000g mark. Some go much higher, some much lower. An ultracentrifuge kicks *** compared to this though. run
