Air Pumps

Welcome to High Quality Store Air Pumps Collection



If you were to start a survey on the subject of pumps, you would certainly already get the most diverse answers when it comes to the question of appearance. After all, there are so many variants that each of your participants would think of something else. The one may think of the bike, while the other comes to the other a football in mind. They all have one thing in common, they are manual. Finally, there is the pump but also in the electronic version. She is most certainly a household name in the context of air mattresses and the large guest beds. But there are also variants that have nothing to do with air. For example, the water pump with which you can empty the small pond in the garden or the pool. The pump is also used in completely different areas. For example, in the car or the aquarium. So it is not surprising that the word pump causes a variety of images and thoughts.


Where does the pump come from?

In the historical consideration, we turn now but once the air pump. This concept was valid until the 19th century in a pump that removed air from a container and not vice versa. For experimental purposes such a vacuum should be created. The first piston pump for this purpose dates from 1649. It is thus a direct forerunner of the models, as we know you today. Incidentally, it was invented by the then mayor of the city of Magdeburg. An inversion of the pump came some time later. In the year 1888 the bicycle pneumatic tire was developed and the air pump was modified accordingly. Incidentally, this invention goes back to a certain Mr. John Boyd Dunlop.


How does the pump work?

The functioning of a pump can be explained well using the example of a hand-operated air pump. It consists of a cylinder and a piston that can move in it. The latter is usually still connected to a rod with a handle, so that the induced movement is easier. The piston also has a compression which works in one direction only. So when pressed down, the seal works and the air can only escape through the valve. If it is pulled up again, the gasket wears off and the pump can fill with air again.


What do I have to consider when buying a pump?

Of course, when you need a pump, it's all about the purpose of the selection. To a water pump, you certainly have different expectations than an air pump. But also in the species within a category, there are relatively large differences. Since we have mainly devoted ourselves here to the air representatives, we also choose one for the purchase tip: the bicycle pump. Finding the right model here is initially limited to just one criterion - the valve. Inform yourself beforehand exactly which valve you have and accordingly choose the right pump. If this step is done, it is also the purpose here. The mini version, for example, is easy to stow away and therefore ideal for traveling, but it offers little comfort and with it must be pumped longer. The floor pump on the other hand makes wide tires quickly fit again and is therefore well suited for the hobbyist and the local garage. So if you do not need a pump for on the way, you are well served here. Finally, only pay attention to a stable base as possible. After all, the model should not wobble constantly while pumping.
