Hydraulic Pump Mounts

Pump mounts are gearboxes that are designed to power hydraulic pumps. These gearboxes have one input and provisions for mounting one to four pumps on the output side (Fig. 4.30). Mounts are available with or without clutches, and different gear ratios are available. When an internal combustion engine is the prime mover, it is desirable …

Hydraulic Vane Pump Efficiency

The Vickers Model 25V (T) vane pump has a displacement (cam ring fixed for maximum displacement) of 4.81 in3/rev. The specifications are: Maximum speed 1800 rpm Maximum pressure 2500 psi As was done with the gerotor pump, performance at 1200 and 1800 rpm is compared. Volumetric efficiency at 1200 rpm decreases from 97.3% at 500 …

Hydraulic Servo Valves

Servo valves are a close relative of the proportional valve and are based on an electrical torque motor which produces a small deflection proportional to the electrical current through its coil. They commonly use feedback between the main and pilot spools to give precise control. A typical device is shown on Figure 4.40. This consists …

Hydraulic Radial Piston Pump

The principle of operation of the radial piston pump is shown in Fig. 4.16. In this case, the cylinders are positioned radially around the axis of rotation. As the shaft rotates, the connecting rods push the pistons back and forth in the cylinders to develop the pumping action. The design is used to pump both …

Hydraulic Axial Piston Pump

Hydraulic Axial Piston Pump

The axial piston pump has a series of cylinders (typically 7 or 9) mounted parallel to the axis of rotation. (The arrangement is similar to shell chambers in a revolver.) Pistons are installed in the cylinders. Each piston has a spherical end that mounts in a shoe (Fig. 4.12). The shoe is held against a …
