The FN4 power steering pump supplies exactly the right amount of oil that is needed for operating hydraulic steering systems in medium to heavy commercial vehicles.
Proven design with integrated volume flow control
The FN4 power steering pump is designed for connection to the air compressor or a power take-off on the engine. The shaft connects by means of a cross-slotted disk or spline toothing. It can be driven by either a gear or belt. For these cases, an anti-friction bearing is used for the drive shaft. The ball bearing needed for this can be integrated into the housing.
The oil reservoir can be mounted directly on the pump. This eliminates the need for the hose line and saves the manufacturer assembly costs.
The FN4 power steering pump consists of a housing with an integrated volume flow control, cover, front plate, shaft and rotor set.
The rotor set is comprised of the rotor, ten radially-guided blades as well as the cam ring with two symmetrically arranged suction and pressure zones. The fixed geometric delivery volume of the pump is defined by the design of the cam ring.
The conveyed volume flow is limited to a defined value by the integrated volume flow control. The maximum system pressure must be limited by a pressure control valve installed on the pump or in the system. If required, a pressure level of up to 200 bar is available as a special version.
