The PFBA pump has proved itself successful for use with high water content and low-viscosity fluids. These axial piston pumps are used in a wide variety of applications, including die casting and injection molding machines, high pressure test rigs, civil and marine projects, intensifier systems, extrusion presses, forging presses and high pressure forced lubrication systems for long turbines as well as metal forming machines.


Originally part of the Towler high-pressure pump line, PFBA pumps are extremely reliable when working with water-based fluids. The PFBA-8 has two high-pressure discharge ports.


This pump line is designed for high-speed operation. It’s also compatible with high-pressure and high-shock loads. That’s because of the swashmember angle. At 13 degrees, it creates a low piston head loading.


Attached to the swashmember, a polymer-coated plate provides a bearing surface for thrust loads. The six hardened steel pistons located in a stationary body are not subject to centrifugal force. This reduces load and wear. An optional, built-in supercharge pump lubricates and provides case flow that cools the main pump and eliminates the need for an external supercharge pump.


All Oilgear pumps are designed to thrive on low-viscosity fluids, such as high water content and fire-resistant fluids, like Skydrol™, Stack Magic™, Erifon™ and 98/2.
