The Moog Speed Controlled Pump System reduces energy usage by up to 30%—while also lowering the total cost of ownership. This article discusses our experience with testing this system on a customer’s hydraulic machine and the impressive energy savings experienced in the application. This test represented a good example of an application for hydraulic control where the need for energy efficiency is growing globally and the cost pressures are high.
Industrial pumps can be seen as the heart of any hydraulic system. Depending on the type of application and the expected performance different families of pumps should be considered. Examples of pump families used depending on the nature of the application are:
For high performance or high pressure applications, piston-based designs are the technology of choice. Piston pumps are belonging to the variable displacement pumps and offer long lifetime and high power efficiency.
Within piston-pumps there are two different types that are common in the industrial applications, namely the Axial Piston Pump (AKP) and the Radial Piston Pump (RKP). Each of these types has special characteristics that make it work better in certain cases than the other. However at large, the performance is comparable and the type of the piston pump does not determine the performance of the application rather than the design of the hydraulic circuits.
