I am investigating the use of a gear pump to use as a metering pump. By sensing the drive motor revolutions, I'm hoping to deliver a preset quantity of fluid with constant repeatability. My question for anyone that knows is, what formula can I use to calculate the volume per pump rotation. I'm starting off with a 20DP/10tooth/.500" face spur gear pair.
