In 1906, Mouvex’s founder Andre Petit identified the challenges that gear and lobe pump users were facing in optimizing their process and invented the eccentric disc pump as a result. Eccentric disc pumps consist of a cylinder and pumping element mounted on an eccentric shaft. As the eccentric shaft is rotated, the pumping element forms chambers within the cylinder, which increase in size at the intake port, drawing fluid into the pumping chamber. The fluid is transported to the discharge port where the pumping chamber size is decreased and squeezes the fluid out into the discharge piping. For over a century, Mouvex has provided premium performance and ultimate containment and safety earning a reputation as the ideal pumping solution for a multitude of applications worldwide.
