The V10 series vane pump is a positive displacement pump, meaning it delivers a consistent amount of fluid with each rotation.
It consists of a cylindrical rotor with multiple vanes that slide in and out of slots in the rotor. The vanes maintain contact with the pump's inner surface and create chambers where fluid is trapped and transported.
Flow and Pressure Ratings:
V10 series pumps are available in various models with different flow rates and pressure ratings. These pumps can typically handle flow rates from a few liters per minute to over 100 liters per minute, and pressures ranging from 1000 to 3000 psi (pounds per square inch), depending on the specific model.
The V10 series vane pump is versatile and can handle a wide range of fluids, from thin hydraulic oils to more viscous materials. This flexibility makes it suitable for various applications, including those with varying viscosity requirements.
These pumps are available in different mounting configurations, including flange, foot, and square mounts, allowing them to be easily integrated into different hydraulic systems.
Vane pumps are known for their high volumetric efficiency.
They provide a nearly constant flow rate regardless of the operating pressure, which can be advantageous in systems requiring a stable fluid flow. However, the overall efficiency in terms of energy conversion may not be as high as other types of hydraulic pumps like piston pumps.
Vane pumps are typically fixed displacement, meaning they provide a constant flow rate. To vary the flow, an external control mechanism like a flow control valve is often used in conjunction with the pump.
V10 series vane pumps are designed to operate within a specific temperature range, typically from -20°C to 100°C (-4°F to 212°F). This ensures they can perform effectively in a variety of industrial environments.
These pumps are known for their low maintenance requirements. The vanes and other wearing parts may need periodic replacement, but this is a relatively straightforward and cost-effective procedure. Regular inspection and maintenance can extend the pump's lifespan.
Compared to some other types of hydraulic pumps, vane pumps are generally quieter in operation. This can be important in applications where noise control is a consideration.
