Powerful Hydraulic Pumps/Motors Featuring Non-Rotating Cylinder Blocks
Torvec has redefined the science of hydraulics. The result is the Torvec Hydraulic Pump and Motor — a major breakthrough in hydraulic technology.
We’ve eliminated the rotating piston group (the cylinders are stationary), making the pump tremendously powerful and easy to manufacture. Torvec's patented valving has been integrated to increase efficiency and top pump speed.
Overcoming Challenges Through Innovation and Technology
The challenge: deliver the necessary power while reducing the size and weight of the pump, using parts that can be manufactured at high volume and low cost. The design solution –
- A pump with extremely high power density (horsepower to weight ratio)
- Significant reduction in weight compared to comparable, typical hydraulic pumps
- Non-rotating cylinder block does not need a large spring force that must be overcome in operation
- Low parasitic losses
- Reduced fuel use (GPH) for commercial equipment
- Light and small, an ideal solution for mobile applications
- Tremendous power, perfect for many industrial uses
- An explosion of market opportunities are possible, thanks to Torvec innovation
