Vane pumps are designed with either constant displacement volumes or adjustable displacement volumes. These pumps consist of a housing, in which an eccentrically installed cylinder rotates (rotor). Rotary vanes are spring-mounted to radial guides inside the rotor. During operation, the spring-force ensures that the rotary vanes run along the inner wall of the housing and an enclosed space is formed between them. The pumping medium is transported between the rotary vanes and the housing wall.
It is a vane pump with adjustable displacement volume that is delivered ready for installation, mounted on a plate. The pump is installed in the supply unit with just a few simple steps and connected via hydraulic hoses. A safety valve protects the pump against positive pressure. If the pressure becomes too high, a bypass is opened and the pressure is released to the low pressure side. For power supply, the pump is connected to the drive unit with a V-belt.
