Pumps are used for irrigation, water supply, gasoline supply, air conditioning systems, refrigeration, sewage movement, flood control, marine services, etc. pumps come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from very large to very small, from handling gas to handling liquid, from high pressure to low pressure, and from high volume to low volume.
