This air pump contains a glass or metal cylinder called the barrel, in which a piston works. The piston has an opening through it which is closed at the lower end by a valve S opening upwards. The barrel communicates with a passage leading to the centre of a brass surface

A pump is a device used to move fluids, such as liquids or slurries, or gases. A pump displaces a volume by physical or mechanical action. One common misconception about pumps is the thought that they create pressure. Pumps alone do not create pressure; they only displace fluid, causing a flow. Adding resistance to flow causes pressure. Pumps fall into five major groups: direct lift, displacement, velocity, buoyancy and gravity pumps, and their names describe the method for moving a fluid.

The hot air pumping engine is a technology that uses high amplitude sound waves in a pressurized gas to pump heat from one place to another, or uses a heat temperature difference to induce sound which can be converted to electricity with high efficiency.
