K3VL Series axial piston pumps are compact, self-priming and directly driven by DC/AC/EC motors. The family is designed for circulating liquids of high quality in industries such as Oil and Gas, Chemical, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage and Marine (including defense) where there are hygiene requirements.
They are also suited for circulating noncorrosive liquids at low speeds. The pumps have very good dynamic characteristics and a low wear rate due to the high-quality materials used with an inside hardened shaft.
K3VL series axial piston pump features high pressure, compact size, a wide range of displacements, excellent self-priming properties, and high efficiency.
It is suitable to feed steam, water and other liquids with medium and high viscosity in various industries such as forge, dyeing and tannery, textile printing and dyeing plant, food manufacture plant, papermaking plant etc.
Machine is a great product but you need to know how to use it properly. Here are some tips and FAQs from our team.
What is the difference between K3VL series and K3V series?
The K3V series are axial piston pumps with open loop. The K3VL series are axial piston pumps with closed loop. The difference is in their function. The K3VL series has intelligent control function, which can operate automatically according to the demand of liquid level. It can prevent dry running and pump dry when no liquid is delivered or the pressure is lower than set value.
The K3V series only has manual control, which means that you need to control it manually by adjusting the speed and pressure yourself or with remote control.
Is there any maintenance required?
We recommend that you change oil after 5 years since the date of purchase or every 100 hours of operation (whichever comes first). You also need to check your machine regularly for any damages like leaks, loose connections etc… If there is anything wrong, please contact our Support Team as soon as possible so we can fix it before something serious happens!
The K3VL series provide a wide range of tube diameters to satisfy the needs of most any closed loop cooling application. They are capable of pumping hazardous liquids, including acids and caustics.
The K3VL is well suited for a variety of general industrial and process liquid transfer applications found in chemical, petrochemical and deaerator applications.
The K3VL series offers standard features designed to ensure reliable delivery of medium pressure, corrosive fluids without sacrificing the ease and simplicity demanded by many pump users.
Axial Piston Pumps (Open Loop) K3VL Series FAQ
Q: What is K3VL Axial Piston Pumps Open Loop – Fixed Displacement?
What is K3VL Axial Piston Pumps Open Loop – Variable Displacement?
A: The K3VL series are a group of open loop variable displacement axial piston pumps. The K3VL pump can be used in a variety of applications such as centrifugal compressors, blowers, vacuum pumps and other general industrial applications. The K3VL pump uses a radial piston design to provide high efficiency and low noise levels while operating at high pressures. The K3VL series pumps have the ability to be built with either fixed or variable displacement options. The fixed displacement option allows the user to set the pump at any desired displacement value while the variable displacement option allows the user to change the displacement setting based on their application needs without having to re-purchase another pump system.
Q: What is the difference between the Kawasaki k3vl Axial Piston Pumps models?
A: There are two main differences between the Kawasaki K3VL Axial Piston Pumps models. The first is the bore size. The smaller bore pumps are used in low pressure applications, such as air tools, while the larger bore pumps can be used in high pressure applications, such as hydraulic power packs. The second difference is that the smaller bore pumps are not designed for use with hydraulic fluids and should only be used with compressed air or nitrogen gas.
Q: What is the difference between a positive displacement pump and a reciprocating pump?
A: The main difference between positive displacement and reciprocating pumps is in their method of operation. Positive displacement pumps have a fixed volume per stroke, while reciprocating pumps have a variable volume per stroke.
Q: What is the basic working principle of a positive displacement pump?
A: In a positive displacement pump, there are two chambers that are separated by an impeller. One chamber holds the fluid to be moved and the other holds air or some other gas at atmospheric pressure. The impeller has blades that are shaped like wedges and as it turns in one direction, it pushes the fluid into the second chamber where it mixes with the other gas and exits through an outlet port at high pressure. Since this process takes place inside of a sealed housing, there is no contact between the fluid being pumped and the movable parts of this type of pump. This design makes positive displacement pumps very reliable and quiet running machines compared to other types of pumping equipment such as centrifugal or rotary screw pumps which require lubrication for their moving parts.
Q: What is the difference between open loop and closed loop?
A: In an open loop pump, the fluid is pumped through a fixed piping system with no feedback control of the flow rate. Typically, a flow meter will be installed at one end of the pipe to measure the total volume pumped. A pressure gauge may also be installed at one end of the pipe to measure pressure drop across the pump. These devices are used for troubleshooting purposes or to provide feedback information for automatic control systems. In a closed loop pump, there is some form of feedback control which allows you to adjust for changes in operating conditions. For example, if you have an application where pressure drop across your pump is changing as a result of changes in fluid viscosity, you could use this information to adjust your speed so that your total output remains constant despite changes in viscosity.
Q: Does K3VL Series have oil level switch?
A: Yes, K3VL Series has oil level switch that can automatically stop machine when oil level is below specified value so as to avoid damage caused by lack of lubrication due to shortage of lubricating oil in engine crankcase
