Rotary vane pumps are a very popular form of positive displacement pump that have been used around the world for many decades. They consist of vanes mounted on to a rotor that rotates inside the pump chamber. In some cases these vanes can have variable length and/or be tensioned to maintain contact with the walls as the pump rotates.
