Hydraulic Pumps are the extremely utilized equipment in a caterpillar forklift. It is mostly found in the suspension system, braking system, power steering system, and gear & motor system. In this article we will be referring to the mechanism of a caterpillar forklift hydraulic pump.
Hydraulic pumps situated in the gear & motor systems perform the function of transmitting power to a hydraulic actuator which comes from a prime mover. Caterpillar produces two kinds of hydraulic pumps; positive displacement & centrifugal. Centrifugal indulges the fluid transfer flow, which depends entirely on the pressure of the outlet. On the other hand, the positive displacement pump relies completely on pressure.
The hydraulic flow is formed only when the pump rotating group gets driven by the prime mover, which will ultimately force the fluid out of the pump outlet. A vacuum force is generated when the fluid gets forced out & this force pushes the reservoir fluid into the pump.
Having problem with bad gears is a very common phenomenon for hydraulic pumps. Reasons like high temperature of the hydraulic fluid, wear, contamination & fluid leaks, and aeration caused due to air pockets are responsible for this occurrence.
Damaged or worn out components needs to be repaired or replaced for efficient performance of the forklift trucks. But, remember, it has to be done by professional mechanics who is an expert in this field.
