Press Release Summary:
Variable-displacement, axial piston pump, Model A7VK is designed for high-pressure pumping of polyol and isocyanate used in making polyurethane. Capable of outlet pressure up to 3,625 psi, pump features double shaft seal and flushing chamber that helps identify any inboard seal leakage. Pump displacement can be adjusted manually from 0-28.1 cmÂ³ using integrated display in handwheel. Once adjusted, displacement can be locked to prevent accidental changes.

Bosch Rexroth Introduces New Pump for Polyurethane Components
Variable-displacement axial piston pump is ideal for the plastics industry
The compact A7VK pump uses a special design making it especially suited for pumping and metering fluid for manufacturing polyurethane components.
The new A7VK axial piston variable-displacement pump from Bosch Rexroth is specifically designed for high-pressure pumping of polyol and isocyanate used in making polyurethane. The feed channel is separated from the drive work chamber to allow high pressure filling for highly viscous fluid. The pump is capable of outlet pressures up to 3625 psi (4500 psi peak). Good volumetric efficiency is achieved using a robust internal rotary group and proven axial tapered piston technology.
Precise metering of the pump displacement can be adjusted from 0 to 28.1 cm3 using a manual adjustment with an integrated display in the handwheel. Once adjusted, the displacement can be locked to prevent accidental changes.
The pump has a double shaft seal made with special material and a flushing chamber that helps identify any inboard seal leakage. Internal parts are made without non-ferrous metals for compatibility with polyurethane components. The pump housing is also treated through a special process for corrosion protection.
The A7VK, which can be used with or without a feed pump, offers a more compact design than its predecessor model but maintains the same flange dimensions, drive shaft, and functions to make replacement easier.
