With applications in filling, pressure testing and hydro test, a hydraulic hand pump needs no electric power to operate, allowing you to work independently from a power source. For the manual transference of fluids, hydraulic hand pumps are a practical and cost effective solution.
The RS Range of hydraulic hand pumps contains models suitable for a variety of requirements, offering variations in liquid volume displaced versus the measured effort of operating the handle.
How Do They Work?
Hydraulic hand pumps contain a reservoir of fluid that is typically activated by a lever. When the lever is pumped downward it generates pressure on the fluid which leads to it being displaced through the outlet. When the lever is pumped up it sucks in water from the inlet, resetting the reservoir for the next activation. Hydraulic hand pumps contain safeguard valves that prevent fluid being sucked back in through the outlet. Many hydraulic hand pumps are known as double action which means force is generated on both the up and down stroke of the lever, for more efficiency.
