The hydraulic system is of utmost importance in the overall performance of earthmoving machines. The heart of any hydraulic system is the pump. The modern gear pump is available in a wide range of flow rates and pressure ratings. This paper will deal with the major factors to be considered in the selection of a pump, including capacities and pressure ranges available, life, fluid compatability, efficiency, cleanliness requirements, etc.
A brief look at the future will show that gear pump technology is in a position to keep pace with the rapid advance in flow and pressure requirements of the earthmoving industry.
