In the realm of hydraulic systems, the role of the thrust plate is often overlooked but crucial. It acts as the unsung hero, ensuring the smooth operation of hydraulic gear pumps.
Thrust plates are a fundamental component of hydraulic gear pumps, responsible for controlling axial movement within the pump assembly. They play a pivotal role in preventing metal-to-metal contact, reducing friction, and ensuring the longevity of the pump.
Bronze thrust plates, in particular, offer exceptional properties such as high wear resistance, corrosion resistance, and excellent thermal conductivity.
