Rams , Pumps ,hydraulic motors
Hydraulic ram pumps operate by utilizing pressure developed by a “water hammer” shock wave. Any object in motion has an inertial force. Energy is required to place the object in motion, and energy will also be required to stop the motion, with more energy being required if the motion is started or stopped quickly.
Benefits Of Ram, Pump, Hydraulic Motors
Simple schematic of a hydraulic ram pump. The distinct advantages of ram pumps are their economical installation and constant operation. Because the ram pump can operate with two check valves and a gas chamber, there is no need for costly motors to be installed.
- Hydraulic motors are often tough and durable.
- If used properly they can be more energy efficient than other types of motors.
- They also often provide a strong, steady torque even at low rotational speeds.
