Hydraulic Swash Plate Pump

A constant displacement hydraulic pump uses a fixed swash plate to drive a set of pistons in and out as they revolve.

At the top of their stroke, the pistons move over the inlet port and draw in fluid at low pressure. The fluid is then carried round and expelled through the outlet port at high pressure as the swash plate drives the piston into the cylinder.

To demonstrate this principle, Sphaera's interactive hydraulic swash plate pump features 8 revolving cylinders that provide a clear indication of hydraulic pressure and flow. Operation can be viewed at fast or slow speed and from the side or above.

The pump is part of our instructor pack for basic hydraulic principles, available for use in schools and colleges and includes interactive material to provide tutorials on all of the following:

A demonstration of Pascal's Law...
The relationship between hydraulic pressure and force...
How a simple hydraulic system works...
An example of a simple interactive hydraulic braking system...
How a hydraulic swash plate pump works...

Operation of a hydraulic NRV (non-return valve)...
