Oilgear's latest pump offers several mechanical, hydraulic and electrohydraulic servo valve controls. The pump can be interchanged in the field, needing no disconnection from the main drive or system piping. Users can choose one of three capacities per single frame size. It can run on low-viscosity or other special fluids, and resists contamination, made up of a hardened cylinder surface on a hardened valve plate, and has pistons running on a hardened swashblock surface. It also has multiple displacements with two mountings, sealed front bearings, thru-shaft availability, a maximum continuous speed of 3,600 rpm, a peak pressure of 5,000 rpm (350 bar), and theoretical maximum displacements from 0.66 cubic inches (10.8 ml/rev) to 1.35 cubic inches/rev (22.1 ml/rev).
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
