To get you started on the right track, here are a few basic differences between a positive displacement pump and a centrifugal pump. These are the two main categories of pumps, in case you weren’t aware, and under these categories fall many types of pumps, including gear pumps, peristaltic pumps, reciprocating pumps, lobe pumps, and screw pumps.

A centrifugal pump works on the basis of centrifugal force, using the motion of an impeller to move fluid along. The impeller drives the fluid from one end of the pump through the discharge. There are numerous types of centrifugal pumps, and each has its own particular applications. The flow of a centrifugal pump will vary as the pressure changes, and efficiency will decrease as fluid viscosity increases. Additionally, a centrifugal pump will not prime on its own. There must be liquid in the pump to create a pressure differential.

A positive displacement pump, on the other hand, sucks a set amount of fluid into the inlet and out the discharge with each pump cycle. It works on a pulsating flow, which remains constant regardless of changing pressure. Unlike the centrifugal pump, the positive displacement pump actually increases in efficiency with higher viscosity and with higher pressures.
