Hydraulically Driven Pumps

Posted by & filed under Technical Papers.

Excessive torque, side thrust, and friction make crank-driven pumps cumbersome and expensive at high pressures. But in hydraulically driven pumps, these effects are eliminated or minimized and higher pressures can be attained. Also, longer strokes are characteristic; therefore, rates of stress buildup are reduced in such areas as check valves and packings, which result in […]
