Popular motor pump sets usually consist of a prime mover in the form of a piston engine or electric, hydraulic, or air motor that is connected to a fluid or gas pump via a coupling (or a bellhousing and coupling combination). The advantages of using a bellhousing are numerous but one of them is that full concentricity can be maintained between the prime mover and the pump connected to it, thus negating the potential of an early coupling failure due to shaft to shaft misalignment.
Machine builders involved in the design or commissioning of such motor/pump sets might benefit from talking to JBJ Techniques, located just off the M25 in Redhill, Surrey. The company can design and build motor-pump assemblies from an extensive stock of hydraulic gear motors and hydraulic gear pumps, and can also design and manufacture custom adaptors to mount the gear pumps.
Although almost all of the necessary component parts are stocked, custom projects requiring special plates, bespoke mounts or adapters can be manufactured in-house using JBJ's own machine shop facilities. The company has an experienced team of design engineers and provides customers with full design drawings for reference and approval before any build commences.
