The 5S2 46620MET hydraulic gear pump belongs to the category of positive displacement pumps.
It features a displacement of 2.2 cubic inches per revolution, which determines its capacity to move hydraulic fluid. This pump is designed to operate at a maximum pressure of 2500 PSI (pounds per square inch), making it suitable for applications that require moderate to high hydraulic pressure.
This hydraulic gear pump is meticulously engineered to ensure durability, reliability, and efficiency. Its core components consist of two meshing gears – a driving gear and a driven gear. These gears are precisely machined to minimize internal leakage and maximize volumetric efficiency.
The pump housing is typically made from high-strength materials like cast iron or aluminum alloy to withstand the rigors of hydraulic fluid pressure and temperature variations. Its compact design allows for easy integration into various hydraulic systems.
The primary function of the 5S2 46620MET hydraulic gear pump is to create a flow of hydraulic fluid within a system. Here's how it works:
Suction Phase: During the first half of a gear pump's revolution, hydraulic fluid is drawn into the pump inlet through a suction port. The space between the gear teeth and the pump housing increases, creating a vacuum that draws fluid from the reservoir or supply line.
Compression Phase: As the gears continue to rotate, the fluid is trapped in the spaces between the gear teeth and the housing.
The fluid is compressed as the gears mesh and move towards the discharge side of the pump.
Discharge Phase: When the gear teeth reach the discharge side, the pressurized hydraulic fluid is forced out through the pump outlet. This high-pressure fluid can then be directed to various hydraulic components such as cylinders, motors, or valves to perform work within a hydraulic system.
The 5S2 46620MET hydraulic gear pump offers several key features that make it a popular choice in the industry:
Efficiency: Its gear design minimizes internal leakage, resulting in high volumetric efficiency. This means more hydraulic fluid is delivered per revolution, improving overall system efficiency.
Compact Size: The pump's compact design allows for easy installation in tight spaces, making it suitable for mobile and industrial applications with limited room for hydraulic components.
Durable Construction: Constructed from robust materials, this pump can withstand high pressures and operate in challenging environments, ensuring longevity and reliability.
Versatility: Hydraulic gear pumps like the 5S2 46620MET can be used in a wide range of applications, including agricultural machinery, construction equipment, material handling, and more.
