Hydraulic pumps are used in hydraulic drive systems and can be hydrostatic or hydrodynamic. A hydraulic pump is a mechanical source of power that converts mechanical power into hydraulic energy (hydrostatic energy i.e. flow, pressure). It generates flow with enough power to overcome pressure induced by the load at the pump outlet. There are many types of hydraulic pumps, whether it be a gear, vane, piston, hydrostatic or other type, Sloan Fluid can help you select or crossover the right pump for your application.
