External Gear Pump Manufacturer

An external gear pump is composed of two interlocking identical gears. These gears are supported by different shafts. Typically, one gear is motor-driven which in turn drives the other gear, known as the idler gear. Some external gear pumps have shafts both driven independently by motors. The bearing support the shafts on each side of the casing, ensuring smooth operation of the pump.

External gear pumps are widely used for conveying low-viscosity, toxic, and aggressive liquids. These pumps operate in a simple principle. A rotor on the driven shaft transfers rotary motion to a second rotor. Thus, displacing a volume of liquid proportional to the speed. This design allows the pump to both suction liquids and pump them at high pressure. Thanks to their low friction and high efficiency, external gear pumps are known for their durability and minimal wear.

At Target Hydraulics, we offer external gear pumps for different hydraulic systems. We designed these pumps with rich characteristics to achieve low noise levels to promote a friendly working environment and reducing energy consumption for environmental and cost-saving benefits. Target Hydraulics also offers assembly and selection services. As a leading supplier, we are committed to providing complete hydraulic solutions at a competitive price.

Why Choose Our External Gear Pump

High Pressure

Our external gear pump can handle high pressure. Thus, you can be assured that it can pump high-viscosity fluids at a long distance.


We offer external gear pumps that are designed with rotating gears to ensure self-priming capabilities. Thus, making them ideal for applications with suction difficulties.


Target Hydraulics designed external gear pumps with spur or herringbone gears. These allow them to provide both single or bi-directional hydraulic fluid flow.

Pulseless Flow

Rest assured that our external gear pumps can offer a constant and smooth flow while the gears rotate without obstruction, ensuring reliability.

The Working Principle of Our External Gear Pump

The external gear pump works in three different cycles including the following:

  1. The pump forms an expanded volume as the gear disengages on the inlet. Due to the expansion, the hydraulic liquid flows throughout the cavities. Then, the gear teeth traps the hydraulic liquid as it continue to rotate.
  2. The trapped hydraulic liquid is transferred from the pump inlet to the discharge side.
  3. When the pump gear teeth mesh together on the discharge side, it creates a smaller volume. This reduction in volume causes the fluid tapped between the gears to be pressurized and forced out of the pump.

Main Features of Our External Gear Pump

  • Up to 20 Bar high pressure rating
  • Heavy-duty design making it suitable for continuous applications
  • Gear tooth profile modification for prolonged life service
  • Provides even load distribution
  • Low leakage ensuring enhanced volumetric efficiency
  • Shorter bearing span

Different Gear Types

Spur. These are the most straightforward types of gear in terms of design. They can be produced through various techniques such as injection molding. Their design is also compatible with grinding or wire EDM processes, which allows for the use of hardened materials.

Helical. These gears are similar to spur gears but have teeth that twist around the gear axis. Due to its designs, it can operate with low noise and vibration because the teeth make contact gradually during rotation, which extends their lifespan.

Herringbone. Herringbone gears combine the advantages of helical gears, such as reduced noise and vibration, without generating axial force. This is achieved by having mirrored helical patterns that create a V-shape herringbone design.

External Gear Pump Construction Materials

Each component of our external gear pump is made from the finest-quality materials to ensure optimized cost, durability, and longevity.

What is the difference between internal and external gear pump?

Internal and external gear pumps are two types of displacement pumps, each with distinct characteristics and applications. Below are common differences between the two pumps.

  • External gear pump consists of two meshing gears, typically of the same size, that rotate within the housing. While internal gear pump features a rotor that meshes with an internal gear with teeth on the inside.
  • As the external gear pump rotates, they trap fluid between the gear teeth and the pump housing moving it from the inlet to outlet. Internal gear pump has rotors and internal gears that create a cavity to trap the fluid and moves it from the inlet to the outlet.
