Default BC for closed circuit with pump

crixman is on a distinguished road
I'm trying to simulate a closed water circuit with interFoam (a scheme is attached).
The question is: is there a boundary which can ideally replace a pump rotor, or should I make a new one? Do you have any recommendations?

I saw surfaceNormalFixedValue but I would like to impose pressure as well.

Thanks in advance!
