The K3VG series pumps are built with a robust and compact design.
They are axial piston pumps, which means that the hydraulic fluid is pressurized by pistons moving in an axial (up and down) motion within a cylinder block. This design allows for high-pressure operation and excellent performance.
Flow and Pressure Range:
The K3VG series offers a wide range of flow and pressure options to suit different application requirements. These pumps can provide flow rates ranging from approximately 20 to 200 liters per minute (LPM) and operate at pressures up to 35 MPa (5,000 psi). This versatility makes them suitable for various hydraulic systems, from small-scale applications to heavy-duty machinery.
Efficiency is a crucial factor in hydraulic systems to minimize energy consumption and reduce operating costs. The K3VG pumps are designed for high efficiency, thanks to features such as precise control of the swash plate angle and low-friction components. This design ensures that a significant portion of the input power is converted into useful hydraulic power, leading to reduced energy wastage and improved system performance.
K3VG pumps offer various control options to match the specific needs of your application.
These control options include pressure compensator control, load-sensing control, and electric proportional control. Pressure compensator control helps maintain a consistent pressure, load-sensing control adjusts the flow based on the system's demands, and electric proportional control allows for precise and dynamic control of flow and pressure.
The K3VG series is highly versatile and can be used in a wide range of applications, including construction equipment, industrial machinery, mobile cranes, and more. Their adaptability makes them suitable for both open and closed-loop hydraulic systems.
Kawasaki is known for producing durable and reliable hydraulic components, and the K3VG series is no exception. These pumps are designed to withstand harsh operating conditions and provide long-lasting performance. They are built with high-quality materials and undergo rigorous testing to ensure their durability.
Maintenance and Serviceability:
These pumps are designed with ease of maintenance in mind. They are equipped with replaceable cartridge-type components, making it convenient to service and replace parts when necessary. This feature helps reduce downtime and ensures a longer lifespan for the hydraulic system.
In addition to performance, the K3VG series takes environmental factors into account. They are designed to be more eco-friendly by minimizing oil leakage and reducing noise levels. This helps in meeting environmental regulations and creating a safer and more pleasant working environment.
