Wear Detection of a Vane Pump Using a Novel Flowmeter Phenomenon

  • K. Watkins
  • J. Watton

Abstract

A variable area flowmeter incorporating electromagnetic sensing and electronic signal processing is used to measure the flow characteristics of a positive displacement vane pump. It is then shown how the basic signal may be used to indicate stator wear, and trending is shown to favourably compare with accelerometer measuring taken from the pump port plate.
