The VMQ series vane pump is built with a sturdy cast iron housing, ensuring durability and resistance to harsh operating conditions.
Its compact design makes it easy to integrate into hydraulic systems while maintaining high performance.
The heart of the VMQ pump lies in its vane technology. The pump features multiple vanes that are precisely machined and fitted into a rotor. These vanes slide in and out of slots in the rotor, creating chambers that change in volume as the rotor turns. This displacement action is what generates hydraulic flow.
Flow and Pressure Ratings:
The VMQ series offers a wide range of flow and pressure options to suit various applications. Flow rates typically range from 10 to 30 gallons per minute (GPM), while pressure ratings can go up to 3,000 psi, making it suitable for both low and high-pressure systems.
The pump is designed to operate within a broad temperature range, typically from -20°C (-4°F) to 120°C (248°F), making it suitable for applications in extreme environments.
The VMQ series is compatible with a variety of hydraulic fluids, including mineral-based oils, synthetic oils, and some water-based fluids. This versatility allows it to be used in diverse industrial settings.
Eaton Vickers offers a choice of sealing options for the VMQ series vane pump to ensure compatibility with different fluids and to minimize leakage.
Common seal materials include Buna-N, Viton, and EPR.
The VMQ pump can be mounted in different orientations to accommodate various installation requirements, providing flexibility in system design.
Noise and Vibration Control:
The design of the VMQ series includes features to minimize noise and vibration, ensuring a quieter and smoother operation, which can be crucial in noise-sensitive environments.
Vane pumps are known for their high volumetric efficiency, and the VMQ series is no exception. It delivers consistent and reliable hydraulic flow, contributing to energy efficiency in hydraulic systems.
Routine maintenance for the VMQ series vane pump is relatively simple and can be performed without extensive downtime. Maintenance tasks typically include changing seals, vanes, and filters as needed.
