For use with the Positive Displacement Pump Module (MFP103) this pump is ideal for student experiments, demonstrations and projects.
The piston pump is a positive displacement pump. It has twin vertically-opposed pistons that deliver a given volume of fluid (oil) for each full rotation of the pump shaft. Built-in one-way valves determine the flow direction, but you only test the pump in one direction, determined by the Universal Dynamometer.
Self-sealing connections reduce oil spillage and simplify installing the pump to the pump module.
