Danfoss Power Solutions is updating its Series 45 pump portfolio with the addition of the K2 frame axial piston pump. The smaller K2 frame, 25-45cc, has been reduced in length by up to 20 per cent, width by up to ten per cent and weight by up to 30 per cent, offering users a smaller solution that continues to provide maximum efficiency and productivity.
“As we designed the K2 axial piston pump, we focused on creating an optimized package and improving performance to meet the needs of our customers,” said Jeff Brenner, Director of Medium Power Open Circuit Sales at Danfoss Power Solutions. “With the K2, we’re able to deliver the best combination of package size and weight on the market, offering our customers additional flexibility in their design and manufacturing.”
The modular design of the K2 axial piston pump offers greater flexibility in installation and allows the pump to be easily integrated into machine systems. K2 pumps offer a wide range of displacements, controls, and configurations that have been designed to fit multiple off-highway applications in the agriculture, construction, road-building, material-handling, forestry, and turf-care industries.
By decreasing the package size and reducing the weight by up to 30 per cent, the K2 pump improves performance with increased rated pressure, and higher rated speed and temperature capabilities. These improvements work together to give the end user a better, more reliable machine. And additional features inside the housing of the K2 pump allow for dissipation of noise and vibration, resulting in a more comfortable operator experience. Sound-deadening characteristics also help meet local industry regulations for noise.
“The ability to integrate the entire Series 45 portfolio with PVG and PLUS+1 solutions offers an infinite number of control combinations and gives OEMs the ability to refine them to meet specific requirements,” added Brenner.
