2 Functions with single pump?

2 Functions with single pump?

2 Functions with single pump?

I am needing to do the following functions with the avalibility of a single dc motor: evenly lift pair of cylinders with even loads,simultaneously, lift and gravity lower each cylinder independently while the other remains closed, gravity lower cylinders,both simultaneously and independently.

I was looking at a double gearpump,2 release valves and 2 check valves, when I needed to lift only one cylinder, I would activate the dc motor and the release valve of the opposite side, so the side I needed to remain closed would recirculate the fluid to the reservoir instead of lifting that cylinder, while the other gear would conintue to lift.

Does this sound like a viable option to get these functions? I'm having trouble finding a tandem gear that is 50/50 3.5-4.0mL/rev each side and is submergable without displacing too much of my avalible reservoir capacity (most have a huge junction box instead of specific piggyback spurpacks)

Are there flow divider circuits that would better suit me?

Keep in mind I am a complete novice!   thanks for your time and any input! Dudely

RE: 2 Functions with single pump?

Yes, my problem with selecting a gear is the endheads we are using are completely flat, milled only for the shaft seal to fit snuggly (like Stone brand pumps), and I have no idea how to order a gear that will fit with proper shaft length. they have a series but the ports are not boss or npt, and its a 'transmissiion flange' mount.

 Stones gears are too big with the coupling section, 2 gears spinning 3.5cm/rev each does not need to displace 150cubes in my oil tank, 50 at the max.. and they wont even respond to my emails anyway.

 Maybe those are questions I should be asking. DC Motor is 9 spline, I dont know if coulpings can be ordered in different lengths? How much does the drive shaft stick out of a certai gear? They dont specify in catalogues I've seen..

How am I suppossed to know this stuff?

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
White Paper - Moving to a Driverless Future
This white paper describes what we see as the best practices to support a sustainable engineering process for autonomous vehicle design. It exposes how to use simulation and testing in common frameworks to enable design exploration, verification and validation for the development of autonomous cars at a system, software and full-vehicle level to drive a mature product development process for automated driving.

Research Report - How Engineers are Using Remote Access
Remote access enables engineers to work from anywhere provided they have an internet connection. We surveyed our audience of engineers, designers and product managers to learn how they use remote access within their organizations. We wanted to know which industries have adopted remote access, which software they are using, and what features matter most. Download Now
