Housing: The pump's housing is typically made of high-quality cast iron or aluminum alloy.
This housing provides structural integrity and helps contain the hydraulic fluid.
Gears: This pump operates on the principle of positive displacement. It features a pair of interlocking gears, typically made of hardened steel, which rotate within the housing. As the gears rotate, they create chambers of varying volume that draw in and expel hydraulic fluid.
Shafts: The pump is driven by a shaft connected to an external power source, such as an electric motor or an engine. The rotational energy from the shaft is transmitted to the gears, initiating the hydraulic pumping action.
Flow and Pressure Specifications:
The 5C1 24406LAA hydraulic gear pump is known for its reliable performance in delivering hydraulic fluid at specified flow rates and pressures. Its specifications may vary depending on the manufacturer and model, but typical performance characteristics include:
