Pump design offers big benefits in stationary hydraulic applications

Pump design offers big benefits in stationary hydraulic applications Described as the ultimate in drive technology for stationary hydraulics applications, the new RKP-II second-generation radial piston pump from Moog provides OEMs and end users with a number of important benefits. Of particular interest are those related to noise, durability, efficiency and service life. An increased number of pistons, modified suction porting and redesigned stroke ring enhances fluid delivery, decreases flow pulsation, increases life and significantly lowers noise levels. Initially available in 63, 80 and 100cc per revolution variants, its radial design offers many advantages compared to axial piston pumps such as low output pressure pulsation. In most model sizes, an increase in the number of pistons from seven to nine reduces the piston diameter lowering the affect of dynamic transverse forces on the housing. This means the RKP-II runs virtually stress free and is less subject to piston wear and detaching slipper pads. Volume, flow and pressure pulsations on the high-pressure side are also noticeably lower. The RKP-II with its completely re-engineered power train is ideally suited for integration into a wide variety of machines and installations. It is designed to be highly resistant to wear and, as a result, is more tolerant of negative suction pressure. This is due to all the parts associated with fluid flow dynamics being hardened - eliminating pitting caused by cavitation.
