The swash-block, along with the integral saddle, cylinder-mounted polymerous journal bearings, and sealed front shaft bearings, all work together to contribute to the pump's ability to run on low viscosity or other special fluids.
The pumps have rotation convertibility for right-and-left-hand driven pumps, as well as an SAE heavy-duty splined or keyed shaft, a patented pressure lubricated swashblock, and a cylinder mortared in polymerous hydrodynamic journal bearings.
The open loop pumps feature a rotating group design with rugged cylinder design and hardened cylinder surfaces, maximum pressure of 4250 psi (293 bar), and a cylinder mounted in polymerous hydrodynamic journal bearings.
