POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT MACHINES FOR LIQUIDS; PUMPS (machines for liquids, or pumps, of rotary piston or oscillating piston type F04C; non-positive displacement pumps F04D; pumping of fluid by direct contact of another fluid or by using inertia of fluid to be pumped F04F; crankshafts, crossheads, connecting-rods F16C; flywheels F16F; gearings for interconverting rotary motion and reciprocating motion in general F16H; pistons, piston-rods, cylinders, in general F16J)
NOTE
-
In this subclass, the following term is used with the meaning indicated:

- "piston" also covers a plunger.

Attention is drawn to the notes preceding class F01, especially as regards the definitions of "machines", "pumps", and "positive-displacement".
