More information about piston pumps:

A piston pump moves fluid using reciprocating pistons. The pistons are most often driven by an electric motor.

They operate when the pistons moves back and forth in the cylinder, creating alternating displacement and suction, drawing the fluid into a chamber, then pushing it through the outlet.

Piston pumps are an integral component of many types of hydraulic pumps used to power heavy machinery, and they’re also useful in smaller machines such as paint sprayers. Axial and radial piston pumps, both of which consist of several pistons arrayed in a circular cylinder block, are useful in high-tech and advanced industrial applications.
