Marzocchi Pompe has developed the Elika, a low-noise, low-ripple, high-efficiency gear pump, in collaboration with the Engineering Faculty of the University of Bologna, Italy.
Elika’s multiple version has been awarded the ‘Technical Mention’ prize by the commission at EIMA 2018, which opens next Wednesday. The judges explained, “Multiple Elika is a solution for external gear pumps that allows the same design of gears previously reserved for individual pumps to be used in modular architectures, to reduce vibrations and noise.”
Agricultural machines are becoming more and more sophisticated and technologically advanced and Elika’s helical gear technology is the perfect choice for them and for all low-noise level applications. The gears on the pump reduce the noise level by an average of 15dBA compared with a conventional external gear pump.
Patented by Marzocchi Pompe, the helical gears eliminate the encapsulation phenomenon typical of standard gear pumps by significantly reducing pressure oscillations and vibrations produced by the pump and transmitted to the other components, reducing the noise of the hydraulic system and creating a more pleasant sound.
Marzocchi Pompe will be exhibiting at EIMA 2018 in hall 18/stand B69.
