To:Sudeep MandipalliFrom:Parker EvansSection:507Date:2/12/2019Re:Lab 3 ReportPurpose:The purpose of this lab was to gain a basic amount of understanding of the design, funciton,and characteristics of fluid power and fluid transfer pumps. This lab was focused on two types ofpumps: positive displacement and non-positive displacement. It will provide the understandingof the fundamentals of these pumps as well as teach how to calculate the flow rate of a pump.Procedure:We first began by discussing the functions of positive and non-positive displacement pumps andwhat the differences between them were. Then, using calipers, we took measurements ofdifferent areas of the pumps. These measurements will later be used to calculate both GPM andCIR of these gear, vane, and piston pumps.Results:Gear Pumps and Motors:GPM (1800 RPM) = 17.00 GPMCPI = 2.170 in3Vane Pumps and Motors:GPM (1800 RPM) = 26.52 GPMCPI = 3.386 in3Piston Pumps and Motors:GPM (1800 RPM) = 60.62 GPMCPI = 7.779 in3Conclusions/Recommendations:When comparing these three types of positive displacement pumps, you will notice that the
