How to prime a hydraulic gear pump?

A hydraulic gear pump is a type of positive displacement pump that uses two gears to pump hydraulic fluid. The two gears are meshed together, and as they rotate, they create a vacuum that draws fluid into the pump. The fluid is then forced out of the pump and into the hydraulic system through an outlet port.

Here is a more detailed explanation of how a hydraulic gear pump works:

The pump is powered by a motor or engine, which rotates the drive gear. The drive gear is typically connected to the motor or engine by a shaft.

As the drive gear rotates, it meshes with the driven gear, which is positioned next to it. The driven gear rotates in the opposite direction to the drive gear.

The rotation of the gears creates a vacuum on the inlet side of the pump, which draws fluid into the pump through an inlet port.

As the gears continue to rotate, the fluid is trapped between the teeth of the gears and the pump casing, and is carried around to the outlet side of the pump.

The fluid is then forced out of the pump through an outlet port, and into the hydraulic system.

The process repeats continuously as the gears rotate, creating a steady flow of fluid through the hydraulic system.

Hydraulic gear pumps are typically used in applications where high-pressure, low-flow rates are required, such as in hydraulic power steering systems, hydraulic brakes, and hydraulic lifts.

POOCCA hydraulic gear pumps include single pump, double pump, and triple pump. Conventional products can be shipped immediately, and special products are subject to customization.
