More information about progressive cavity pumps:

A progressive cavity pump is considered a positive displacement type. They use a single screw rotor inside of a rubber stator to move liquid through a series of chambers. They are often used to handle liquids containing solids, abrasive liquid, and highly viscous liquids.

The pump’s rotor is shaped like a rounded screw, which, as it turns, creates a cavity that moves or progresses along the length of stator as the fluid is drawn through. The effect of this design is that the fluid is moved at a very predictable and steady rate, but it exits the pump with high pressure.

Progressive cavity pumps are useful in a wide variety of industrial and water management applications. Smaller versions are used to move food and drink in the service industry, and much larger types are used for pumping sewage, slurry, oil, and other viscous chemicals.
