The Series 45 product family

Basic units

The series 45 family of open circuit, variable piston pumps, offers a range of displacements from 25 to 147 cm³/rev [1.53 to 8.97 in3/rev]. With maximum speeds up to 3600 rpm and continuous operating pressures up to 310 bar [4495 psi], product selection is easily tailored to the flow and pressure requirements of individual applications.

Load sensing open circuit system

The pump receives fluid directly from the reservoir through the inlet line. A screen in the inlet line protects the pump from large contaminants. The pump outlet feeds directional control valves such as PVG-32’s, hydraulic integrated circuits (HIC), and other types of control valves. The PVG valve directs pump flow to cylinders, motors and other work functions. A heat exchanger cools the fluid returning from the valve. A filter cleans the fluid before it returns to the reservoir. Flow in the circuit determines the speed of the actuators. The position of the PVG valve determines the flow demand. A hydraulic pressure signal (LS signal) communicates demand to the pump control. The pump control monitors the pressure differential between pump outlet and the LS signal, and regulates servo pressure to control the swashplate angle. Swashplate angle determines pump flow. Actuator load determines system pressure. The pump control monitors system pressure and will decrease the swashplate angle to reduce flow if system pressure reaches the PC setting. A secondary system relief valve in the PVG valve acts as a back-up to control system pressure.
