B & C Hydraulics
Hydraulics Online – Supplying you with B & C Hydraulics and B & C Hydraulic Vane Pumps, Gear Pumps, and other B & C Hydraulic Equipment and Components.
The story of B&C Hydraulics started when the company was founded in 1990 and began designing and manufacturing replacement hydraulic components parts for mobile equipment. Accredited with the internationally recognised ISO 9001 quality management standard since 1999, the B & C Hydraulics produce range now includes quality, competitively priced: vane pumps, gear pumps and in-line valves. B&C became part of the Elettrotek Kabel Group in 2013.
Versatility, power, compactness and low running costs are the main characteristics of B&C Hydraulics vane pumps. All the components subject to wear are contained in a cartridge unit that can be easily removed for inspection and/or replacement without disconnecting the hydraulic pump from the circuit, drastically reducing expensive machine down time. The cartridge contains a rotor, vanes and inserts, a cam ring and two covers.
During operation the rotor is driven by a splined shaft coupled to the drive unit. As the rotation speed increases, centrifugal forces, in combination with the pressure generated behind the vanes, push the vanes outwards, where they follow the profile of the cam of the ring with a sufficient contact pressure to ensure adequate hydraulic sealing. The two opposed pumping chambers formed by the elliptical profile of the cam cancel out radial loads on the shaft bearings, thereby giving them extremely long lifetimes.
