A distributor pump head is used to direct the flow of fluid in any type of industrial pump or machine. This type of pump head has a tapered inner wall that is made of cylindrical material, and it has two flat outer walls that taper to a point at the inner edge. The inner wall of the housing has a number of holes or ports that are there to enable the discharge of any kind of fluid as required. There is a port for each and every hole. The large number of ports permits the flow of almost all types of fluid, with the exception of water. All kinds of liquid can be discharged through these ports and hence, the name "Distributor Pump Head".

In order to understand the working of the type of pump head you will require to know a little bit about pressure. Every kind of pump has the characteristic of creating a certain pressure depending upon the amount of pressure that is there in the working chamber. When this pressure is high, the liquid is allowed to move from the lower region into the upper region. This movement of the liquid can be very easily observed with the help of a thermometer. If you have a small pressure variation in the working chamber, you will observe that liquid behaves as if it is being buoyed up and expelled from the same region, which is known as "high pressure".

Now, if you want to understand what happens when you introduce another type of pressure, say low pressure, into the working chamber, you will have to use a different type of thermometer to measure the variation. This will allow you to determine what kind of action is going on under the hood. Generally speaking, there are two types of pumps positive displacement and rotary vane. Positive displacement pumps have an inner spring that acts as a pressure absorber and it works by allowing the liquid to be expelled from the upper part while the rotary vane performs the function of pushing the liquid out of the tank or reservoir by means of a rotor. Both these types of pumps have their own advantages and disadvantages, which is why you should learn about them before you start using them.

As discussed earlier, the operation of a pump usually requires the presence of a distributor. If the rotor does not have a good seal, the flow will be diminished. The flow of the fluid is also affected by the design and performance characteristics of the pump itself. A poorly designed pump can experience the phenomenon of "wet fly" wherein the liquid may flow very fast down its discharge line but then drips very slowly on the surface. On the other hand, a pump having good sealing capability can prevent such phenomenon because it can keep the discharge of the fluid at its proper place and speed. However, proper performance of the pump requires that it should have sufficient enough pressure so that it can prevent any occurrence of "wet fly".

Sometimes, the size of the pump can be an issue and this may require the use of custom-made distributor pump head. In this case, it would be a better choice to look for alternative ways in order to make the product more affordable. In fact, there are already a lot of manufacturers that offer different sizes of pumps which you can select from. What you need to do is to know the correct measurement of the pump so that you can make a cost-effective decision.

Finally, the type of the pump head should also be given careful consideration. For instance, the most common type of this product is the centrifugal pump. Centrifugal pumps are commonly used in applications where high pressure is required. This means that you have to be very sure that the pump head you are going to use has the ability to withstand the high pressure produced by these types of pumps.
