One moving part accomplishes both the pumping and valveless functions within the pump, thereby eliminating valves present in other reciprocating pump designs.
Lime-scale build-up which can throw the rotor out of balance and lead to premature seal and bearings failure on a pitot-type rotary pump is never a problem with a Cat Pumps reciprocating pump as all the rotating parts are outside the liquid chamber.
