PC³ Compact Closed Circuit Pump

Not every closed circuit application needs a heavy duty C series or a Severe duty Gold Cup pump. The PC³ series pumps are a medium duty series that are designed to meet the needs of your application in a package that is compact in size, but big on performance. See how the PC³ line of medium duty hydrostatic pumps are the perfect fit for your application.

Gold Cup Hydrostatic Piston Pumps and Motors

Gold Cup piston pumps and motors set the bar for severe duty hydrostats, with design features that extend life, increase productivity, and reduce energy losses. Its robust barrel bearing design, hi-shock capabilities, precise controls, hi-flow ring checks, and auto regulating servo are just a few of the standard features that provide performance in this series up to 3600 rpm and 6000 psi (420 bar).  Gold Cup's high power-to-weight ratio and flexibility in control options deliver significant value-added benefits.

Selecting the Right Motor for your Hydraulic Application

The selection of a motor for a hydraulic application can be complicated. The ideal in hydraulic system design is to match overall efficiencies to the application performance expectation. This requires the designer to first match the motor, then the pump to a specific system performance expectation.  This Whitepaper will explain and assist in selecting between various types of hydraulic motors, namely: Gear, Vane, Piston, and Radial Piston.

Moving Millions with Hydraulics

Hydraulics & Pneumatics, July 2010 - The pumps used in Columbia's walking system drive are Parker Hannifin T6CC vane pumps, which provide a single inlet and two outlets. Designed to be self-wear compensating, these pumps tolerate contaminates and maintain high efficiency over their service life. High efficiency means an overall longer life for the hydraulic system. High lifetime efficiency ensures safe and reliable output from the pumps throughout their service.

Evaluating Hydrostatic Transmissions

Fluid Power Journal, January 2011 - Hydrostatic transmission drives have long been recognized for superior power transmission when variable output speed is required because they provide fast response, maintain precise speed under varying loads, and allow infinitely variable speed control from zero to maximum. Most important, they feature a continuous power curve without peaks and valleys and can increase available torque without having to shift gears as is necessary with mechanical gear transmissions.

Designing for Shock

Hydraulics & Pneumatics, October 2010 - The ultimate goal for a shredding system is to reduce the source material-appliances, tires, concrete, etc, - to smaller particles for recycling.  To transmit the kw-speed, high-torque power needed for these heavy-duty shredders, a gearbox could be used to reduce speed from an electric motor while multiplying torque.  However, hydraulics technology is a more practical solution both for systems driven through gearboxes and those that utilize low-speed, high torque motors in direct-drive systems.
