Housing: The pump housing is a robust, precision-machined component that encloses and protects the internal parts of the hydraulic pump.
It is typically made of high-strength cast iron or steel to withstand the demanding operating conditions.
Cylinder Block: The cylinder block is a critical part of the K3V Series pump. It contains multiple piston bores that reciprocate as hydraulic fluid is pumped through the system. The cylinder block is usually made of hardened steel or other wear-resistant materials to ensure long-lasting performance.
Pistons and Shoes: The K3V Series pump employs a piston and shoe design. Pistons are fitted within the cylinder block and move back and forth to generate hydraulic pressure. Shoes, typically made of high-strength steel, are attached to the pistons and make contact with the swash plate to convert the piston motion into fluid displacement.
Swash Plate: The swash plate is a tilted disc that connects to the drive shaft of the pump. As the drive shaft rotates, the swash plate angle changes, which in turn varies the displacement of the pistons. This design allows for the control of pump output and pressure based on the angle of the swash plate.
Valve Plate: The valve plate is positioned between the cylinder block and the swash plate. It contains various valve ports and passages that regulate the flow of hydraulic fluid. The valve plate directs the fluid to the appropriate areas within the pump, ensuring efficient operation.
Drive Shaft: The drive shaft transmits power from the prime mover, such as an engine or electric motor, to the pump. It is designed to withstand high torque and rotational forces. The drive shaft connects to the swash plate, enabling the conversion of rotary motion into reciprocating motion.
Bearings: The K3V Series pump incorporates high-quality bearings to support the rotating components and reduce friction. These bearings are typically made of hardened steel and are precision-engineered to provide smooth operation and extend the lifespan of the pump.
Seals and O-Rings: Sealing components, such as seals and O-rings, are used throughout the pump to prevent leakage and maintain hydraulic fluid integrity.
These seals are often made of durable materials, such as rubber or synthetic compounds, to withstand high pressures and temperature variations.
Control Options: The K3V Series pumps offer various control options to match different application requirements. These options may include manual control, hydraulic control, or electronic control, allowing for precise control of pump output and performance.
Mounting Options: The pumps in the K3V Series are designed with different mounting options to facilitate easy installation in diverse equipment configurations. Common mounting options include flange mounts, foot mounts, and face mounts, providing flexibility and compatibility with different machinery designs.
