duplex pump

1. n. [Well Workover and Intervention]
A type of fluid pump, commonly used on workover rigs, that has two plungers or pistons. As a positive-reciprocating pump, the fluid flow rate is typically calculated from the number of strokes per minute that the pump makes and the displacement volume per stroke. Such a level of accuracy usually is sufficient for general workover purposes.
