Construction: The GP2C18X is a gear pump, consisting of two meshing gears - an input gear (driven by a prime mover like an electric motor) and an output gear that rotates due to the movement of the input gear.
Size: This pump has a compact and lightweight design, making it suitable for various industrial and mobile applications.
Flow Rate: It can provide a variable flow rate depending on the size and speed of the gears. The GP2C18X offers a substantial flow rate suitable for many hydraulic systems.
Pressure Rating: It is designed to handle hydraulic pressures within a specified range, ensuring efficient operation and durability.
Materials: Typically, hydraulic gear pumps like the GP2C18X are constructed from high-quality materials, such as cast iron or aluminum, to withstand the demands of hydraulic fluid and environmental conditions.
Sealing: It features efficient sealing mechanisms to prevent fluid leakage and maintain system integrity.
The GP2C18X operates based on the principles of positive displacement.
As the input gear rotates, it creates a partial vacuum, drawing hydraulic fluid into the pump's inlet. As the gears continue to rotate, the fluid gets trapped between the gear teeth and is carried along the gears' meshing surfaces. This trapped fluid is then forced out through the outlet port, creating a continuous flow of hydraulic fluid.
Construction Machinery: It is used in hydraulic systems for excavators, loaders, and bulldozers to power functions like lifting, tilting, and steering.
Agriculture: Agricultural equipment, such as tractors and combines, rely on hydraulic gear pumps for tasks like raising and lowering attachments or controlling the flow of hydraulic fluids in different parts of the machinery.
Industrial Machinery: Manufacturing equipment often uses hydraulic gear pumps to operate functions like clamping, pressing, and material handling.
Material Handling: Forklifts and conveyor systems use these pumps for lifting, tilting, and transporting goods.
Automotive: Hydraulic gear pumps can be found in power steering systems, automatic transmissions, and suspension systems of vehicles.
Marine: Hydraulic gear pumps are essential in ship steering systems and hydraulic winches.
