How Vane Pumps Work
Hydraulic vane pumps are used to pump hydraulic fluid from a reservoir into a hydraulic motor. They are driven by an outside engine, such as a diesel engine, that rotates at a relatively high continuous speed of between 1,000 rpm and 3,000 rpm. They operate with low flow pulsation and produce very little noise.
Vane pumps are positive displacement pumps. They pump the same amount of fluid through with each rotation regardless of how much pressure there is in the system. External vane pumps can handle large solids. Flexible vane pumps can only handle small solids but create good vacuum. And sliding vane pumps can run dry for short periods of time and handle small amounts of vapor.
Vane pumps can handle a range of viscosities, and are widely used in road construction equipment, automobiles, lifts, and mobile equipment in medium-pressure industrial applications. They can also handle a wide range of fluid temperatures. -25°F to 500°F, which makes them useful in a variety of applications.
Common Problems with Vane Pumps
Excessive noise. There are typically two main reasons for this: the fuel volume is insufficient or the pump core is worn.
Oil temperature is too high. This could be caused by worn components, by undersized system piping, or improper adjustments of system pressure.
System pressure drop. This may be a result of main control valve leaks, excessive oil temperature, or worn upper and lower oil distribution plates.
No pressure. When there is no pressure in the system, check whether hydraulic oil was discharged, whether the working direction of the oil pump is correct, or whether the coupling between the vane pump and the motor is correct. This may also be caused by failure of the total pressure valve.
