UNIVERSAL VALVE

The KF gear pumps can be optionally equipped with the universal valve. Pumps with universal valves pump to the same pressure connection even when the direction of rotation of the drive shaft changes. Thanks to its principle of operation, the pressure and intake connections remain the same for any drive direction. This property guarantees lubrication of the gearing mechanisms in oscillation mode, for instance, in wind power and marine propulsion systems.
