The floating cup principle was developed
for pumps, hydraulic motors and transformers.
Several floating cup pumps have been built and tested by both the industry
and technical universities. A 70cc hydraulic transformer has been built
and tested in the framework of the EU IBIS program in which a Mecalac
excavator has been fitted with FC transformer technology.
A 28cc, 24 plunger pump (suitable for pressures up to 350-400 bar) is
also available for testing by third parties. Within the framework of the
evaluation program, we can also offer dedicated
pumps which are designed and built according to the specifications of
an interested party. This enables an OEM-er to discover the advantages
of the FC technology for its own, specific application.
