Flow Rate: The PVB10 offers a wide range of flow rates, typically from 7.7 to 32.4 liters per minute (2 to 8.5 gallons per minute).
This variability makes it suitable for different hydraulic systems.
Pressure: The pump is capable of handling system pressures of up to 172 bar (2,500 psi). It operates effectively within this pressure range, making it suitable for numerous applications.
Construction: The PVB10 features a sturdy construction with a cast iron body, making it robust and capable of withstanding harsh operating conditions.
Vane Design: It utilizes a balanced vane design, ensuring smooth and efficient operation while minimizing noise and vibration.
Vane Kit: The vane kit includes vanes that are essential for the pump's operation. Over time, vanes can wear out, leading to decreased performance. Replacing them with genuine Eaton Vickers vanes ensures optimal pump efficiency.
Shaft Seal Kit: The shaft seal kit includes seals and gaskets necessary to prevent hydraulic fluid leakage from the pump. These seals play a crucial role in maintaining the pump's efficiency and preventing contamination.
Bearing Kit: The bearing kit comprises bearings that support the rotating components of the pump. Replacing worn bearings is essential to avoid pump failure and maintain smooth operation.
Casing O-Rings: These O-rings are crucial for sealing the pump's casing. Damaged or worn O-rings can result in leaks and decreased performance. Regular inspection and replacement are necessary to prevent such issues.
Drive Shaft: The drive shaft connects the pump to the prime mover (e.g., an electric motor or an engine).
In case of damage or wear, a replacement drive shaft may be required to ensure proper coupling and power transmission.
Casing Assembly: In some cases, a damaged casing may need to be replaced. The casing assembly includes the housing and internal components of the pump.
Pressure Relief Valve: The pressure relief valve is vital for controlling the pump's output pressure. If it malfunctions, it can lead to excessive pressure or poor performance. Replacing the relief valve with the correct specification is essential.
Coupling and Key: The coupling and key connect the pump to the prime mover's shaft. If the coupling or key is damaged, it can result in misalignment and reduced efficiency.
Filter Elements: Hydraulic systems often include filters to remove contaminants from the fluid. Regularly changing filter elements is essential to prevent damage to the pump and other system components.
