The mushrooming use of hydraulic power is resulting in demands for more flexibility and versatility in the power source. The radial piston pump is particularly well suited to meet present day demands as well as the needs of the future. It permits an unusual degree of flexibility in systems design.
This paper will show how this pump is being used as a source of power to operate either open or closed center systems using either open or closed loops.
It can be operated with controls which modulate pressure or flow or both, automatically, in response to load magnitude, speed, position, or temperature or in response to operator input and using a mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, sound, or light signal.
