In Hydraulic Pumps
Hagglunds Denison recently re- ported design improvements in the firm's World Cup line of axial pis- ton hydraulic pumps provide in- creased reliability and longer life under severe operating conditions.
The pumps, designated "B" mod, are used in a variety of marine applications.
Three different series of pumps are offered. Series 6, 7 and 8 units have displacements of 6.0,7.25, and 8.0 inches 3/rev. respectively. Con- tinuous pressure rating is 5,000 psi for the smaller displacement pumps and3,500psifortheSeries8. Maxi- mum speed is 3,000 rpm for the
Series 6 and 7 and 1,800 rpm for the
The standard control for the
World Cup pumps is a pressure compensator located in the cover assembly. Minimum compensat- ing pressure is approximately 180 psi. Five control options include an electrohydraulic stroker, hydraulic stroker, rotary servo, load-sensing compensator, and a torque limiter.
