Facts About Pump Jacks and Reciprocating Pumps
  • Pump jack and reciprocating pumps are devices
    used in the oil and construction industries. Both
    pumps are effective for pumping oil and other
    liquids, but they operate and perform
    differently. The major difference is that pump
    jacks are used in applications where there isnt
    enough high pressure and reciprocating pumps are
    used in low flow, high pressure applications.
    Below are the specifics of both, which further
    show the difference between the two.

The Pump Jack
  • Commonly used in the petroleum industry, pump
    jacks extrude oil from wells where there isnt
    enough pressure to force oil to the surface. They
    do this by creating an artificial lift. This
    increases the pressure within the oil well, thus
    pulling the oil up to the surface. Artificial
    lifts from a pump jack can be used on their own
    or to increase production when other pumps
    experience drops in pressure.

  • The oil pump jack is the most common type of
    this lift system with equipment placed below and
    above ground to push the crude oil to the
  • Theyre composed of a long beam connected to an
    external power source. The power source allows
    the beam to move up and down. A series of sucker
    rods at the end of the beam dip in and out of the
    well during the pump action. These rods are
    connected to a sucker rod pump installed in the

  • The pump works like a piston increasing
    pressure inside the well and lifting the oil to
    the surface. The end of the pump thats above
    ground is connected to a pulley system that
    causes the jack to move continuously.

The Reciprocating Pump
  • Reciprocating pumps are positive displacement
    pumps that utilize a piston or plunger to
    increase pressure and the volume of a cavity. The
    pump operates by using the reciprocating motion
    of the pistons. Pumps can be designed with
    single, dual or multiple pistons or plungers.
    Theyre designed to be used in high pressure, low
    flow situations.

  • For example, when theres high pressure in a
    well but still only a few gallons of oil passes
    through the pump each minute. Reciprocating pumps
    are often used in situations like this because
    they are some of the oldest, most effective
    pumps. They also have a large range of power
    options from 1hpto 3,000 hp. In fact,
    reciprocating pumps are so effective, durable and
    strong that theyre used in the most corrosive
    and abrasive applications. Even in the most
    corrosive environments, reciprocating pumps can
    operate at as high as 90 capacity at any set

  • The pumps come in a variety of shapes, sizes
    and styles. Different pumps are used for
    different applications, and the pump used depends
    on the required flow rate, the rate of pressure,
    pipe material, corrosivity, fluid viscosity,
    measurement and control systems and pipe
    material. Keep in mind using the wrong pump can
    be dangerous and result in damage to piping,
    equipment and systems.
