This paper proposes an experimental methodology for the analysis of the lubrication regime and wear that occur between vanes and pressure ring in variable displacement vane pumps. The knowledge of the lubrication regime is essential for the improvement of the performance of high pressure vane pumps by reducing wear, increasing the volumetric efficiency and decreasing maintenance costs. Tests using pressure rings of different materials were carried out in order to identify the best material in terms of wear and friction. The proposed methodology is based on Archard’s law and takes advantage of wear experimental measurements, an empirical model for the estimation of contact pressure forces and hardness standard tests. The results of the analysis state that low wear and reduced friction can be obtained if elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication between vanes and pressure ring is established. Results have been also verified by an analytical elasto-hydrodynamic model.

Abstract

This paper proposes an experimental methodology for the analysis of the lubrication regime and wear that occur between vanes and pressure ring in variable displacement vane pumps. The knowledge of the lubrication regime is essential for the improvement of the performance of high pressure vane pumps by reducing wear, increasing the volumetric efficiency and decreasing maintenance costs. Tests using pressure rings of different materials were carried out in order to identify the best material in terms of wear and friction. The proposed methodology is based on Archard’s law and takes advantage of wear experimental measurements, an empirical model for the estimation of contact pressure forces and hardness standard tests. The results of the analysis state that low wear and reduced friction can be obtained if elasto-hydrodynamic lubrication between vanes and pressure ring is established. Results have been also verified by an analytical elasto-hydrodynamic model.
