Vickers®, part of the Eaton Corporation, is a respected name in the fluid power industry. The company’s vane and piston pumps, cylinders, valves, electro-hydraulic controls, and filtration products are used in a large number of applications and markets worldwide, such as industrial, mobile, aerospace, marine and defense.
Choosing the Right Hydraulic Pump
Choosing the right hydraulic pump is important. The three most common types are gear, piston and vane pumps.
- Gear pumps– The gear pump is the most common pump design used for truck-mounted hydraulic systems. The typical gear pump has a pair of intermeshing gears, one of which is connected to a drive shaft. As the shaft turns, the two gears are put into motion to pressurize the hydraulic fluid. They are available in several different classifications: external gear pumps, internal gear pumps, screw pumps and ring pumps.
- Piston pumps– Piston pumps are often used when high operating pressures are needed, such as with truck-mounted cranes. These pumps are characterized by the presence of one or more pistons, consisting of a cylinder inside a cylinder. Their up-and-down motion produces fluid flow and can maintain a large fluid flow at high temperature.
- Vane pumps – Vane pumps have a rotating shaft with a number of thin vanes that protrude from it. These vanes separate the housing into distinct compartments, each conveying fluid from the input to the output as the central rotor turns. Vane pumps excel at handling low viscosity liquids such as LP gas (propane), ammonia, solvents, alcohol, fuel oils, gasoline, and refrigerants, and are common in aviation and automotive applications.
Knowing exactly what the hydraulic pump is expected to do makes it much easier to narrow down your choices. When you choose a pump that’s too weak or not efficient enough, for example, it can lead to high viscosity. You’ll overwork the pump and reduce its lifespan.
It’s important to consider factors such as pump pressure, size, flow rate, speed rating, efficiency rating, fluid compatibility, and the normal operating temperature of the fluid, to ensure that you choose the right pump for the job.
