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 … Continue reading

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 … Continue reading

Hydraulic Vane Pump

A vane pump (Fig. 4.7) has a series of vanes that slide back and forth in slots. There are springs in these slots that push the vanes out until the tip contacts the cam ring. (Some designs port pressurized fluid … Continue reading

Hydraulic Variable Displacement Pump Circuits

Variable displacement pump circuits are called demand flow circuits. A simple example is shown in Fig. 4.6. (The astute reader will quickly observe that this circuit is the first circuit we have studied with no relief valve. Although no relief … Continue reading

Hydraulic Fixed Displacement Pump Circuits

A simple circuit with fixed displacement pump is shown in Fig. 4.3. Circuits with fixed displacement pumps are called constant-flow circuits. The key concept is stated below. Each revolution of a fixed displacement pump delivers a certain volume of fluid … Continue reading

Hydraulic Fixed Displacement Pumps

Vane and piston pumps are available as fixed or variable displacement pumps. If the cam ring is fixed in position (vane pump), or the swashplate is fixed in position (piston pump), the displacement is fixed. Gear pumps, however, are available … Continue reading

Basic Concept of Hydraulic Cylinder

Suppose a flow of fluid is delivered to a hydraulic cylinder, causing it to extend. The cylinder has a cross-sectional area A and delivers a force F while moving a distance x (Fig. 1.2). The distance moved is related to … Continue reading

Hydraulic Positive Displacement Pump, Gear Pump

The simplest and most robust positive displacement pump, having just two moving parts, is the gear pump. Its parts are non-reciprocating, move at constant speed and experience a uniform force. Internal construction, shown in Figure 2.7, consists of just two … Continue reading

Hydraulics Pneumatics Pressure regulation

Figure 2.5a shows the by now familiar system where a load is raised or lowered by a hydraulic cylinder. With valve V1 open, fluid flows from the pump to the cylinder, with both pressure gauges P1 and P2 indicating a … Continue reading
