Displacement Capacity: These pump cartridges come in various displacement options, allowing users to choose the one that best suits their hydraulic system requirements.
Displacement is typically measured in cubic centimeters per revolution (cc/rev). The PFE31, PFE41, and PFE51 series cartridges are available in a range of displacements to accommodate different flow rate and pressure needs.
Flow Rate: The flow rate, measured in liters per minute (LPM) or gallons per minute (GPM), is a crucial specification. The specific flow rate depends on the displacement capacity and the rotational speed of the pump. These pump cartridges are designed to deliver a precise and consistent flow of hydraulic fluid to meet the demands of various applications.
Pressure Rating: Hydraulic systems often require pumps that can handle high-pressure environments. The PFE31, PFE41, and PFE51 series pump cartridges are engineered to work efficiently at elevated pressures. They typically have a high-pressure rating, with some models capable of operating at pressures exceeding 350 bar (5076 psi). This makes them suitable for heavy-duty applications where high-pressure fluid delivery is necessary.
Efficiency: These pump cartridges are known for their high volumetric efficiency, which ensures that a large percentage of the input power is effectively converted into hydraulic power. This efficiency not only helps reduce energy consumption but also contributes to the overall performance and cost-effectiveness of the hydraulic system.
Reliability: Parker Hannifin is renowned for its commitment to quality and durability.
The PFE31, PFE41, and PFE51 series cartridges are no exception. They are constructed with robust materials and components, including precision-machined pistons, cylinder blocks, and bearings. This results in a reliable and long-lasting component that can withstand harsh operating conditions and minimize maintenance requirements.
Fluid Compatibility: Hydraulic systems use various types of hydraulic fluids, including mineral oils, synthetic fluids, and environmentally friendly biodegradable options. These pump cartridges are designed to be compatible with a wide range of hydraulic fluids, making them versatile and suitable for different industries and applications.
Variable Displacement: Many models within these series feature a swashplate mechanism that allows for variable displacement. By adjusting the swashplate angle, users can control the pump's output flow. This feature is invaluable in applications where precise control of fluid flow is essential, such as in industrial presses or injection molding machines.
Noise Levels: The pump cartridges are designed with noise-reducing technologies to operate quietly. Reduced noise emissions contribute to operator comfort and safety, especially in applications where noise reduction is a priority.
