Axial Piston Pump Aims To Increase The Productivity Of Heavy-Duty Machines

Parker Hannifin Corp. has introduced the PV360 as a new addition to the PVplus axial piston pump family. The PV360 can address a wide range of heavy-duty mobile and industrial applications with operating pressures up to 5,000 psi (350 bar).
Featuring a large servo piston for exceptionally fast response, the PV360 is suited for cranes and lifting equipment, presses, metal-forming machines, hydraulic power units and marine use. In these applications, where the hydraulic system may already be subject to high impact forces, the PV360 produces between 40% and 60% less pressure and flow pulsation than comparable pumps. This means that fewer sine waves -- capable of loosening hydraulic connections and damaging downstream components -- are introduced into the system as added burden. Pump noise is also subdued.
A second potential advantage of the PV360 is its modular design. Parker offers a wide variety of compensator options, including standard pressure, remote pressure, load sensing and horsepower. Pilot valves also can be directly mounted without any piping. This permits in-field conversion, when necessary.
Metric and SAE-mounting interfaces are available, and threads/ports can be ordered metric or UNC/UNF, meaning connectors and mounting bolts -- even for body and compensator -- are available according to local standards around the world. For installation and maintenance, no special tools are needed to alter the pump's configuration.
