Definitions for "Gear pump"
A positive-displacement pump that uses an inner drive gear and an outer driven gear, separated on one side by a crescent, to produce oil flow. Gear pumps may use either helical or spur gears and are sometimes called gear-and-crescent pumps.
Positive displacement pump which uses closely meshed gears to propel water when high pressures and low volumes are desired; can be used safely only with clear water-- suspended particles of soil or rocks can quickly wear the gears and reduce pressure and volume of water.
