Flow Profile for Reciprocating Pumps
By nature, reciprocating pumps generate pulsing flow, which, when plotted as a function of time, or of crank angle, produces a curve that resembles a sine wave to a first approximation. However, a closer examination of the flow profile for a piston-and-crank pump or compressor reveals the curve to be a significantly distorted sine wave because of the interaction between the crank and the connecting rod....
