The extensive range of Schaeffler products for hydraulic systems and fluid pumps is included in the area of “Fluid Technology.” Bearings and components for these demanding applications need to be extremely reliable and yet cost-effective. “Fluid Technology” mainly meets these requirements with individualized, customer-specific developments or – in certain cases – with sophisticated standard products.
Pumps convey fluids from a state of lower pressure to a state of higher pressure, from a lower geodetic level to a higher geodetic level, or from a lower flow speed range to a higher flow speed range.
A distinction is made here between two basic principles: the positive displacement principle and the centrifugal principle. In centrifugal pumps, the fluid flows in from an axial direction and is set in motion by a rapidly spinning blade wheel. In piston pumps, the fluid in the cylinder is compressed by a moving piston.
