What Are Hydraulic Gear Motors?

A standard hydraulic motor is an actuator which converts the pressure and flow of your system’s hydraulic liquid into torque and displacement. A gear motor consists of two gears; the driven gear and the idler gear. Highly pressurised fluid is ported into one side of the motor, where it then flows around the periphery of the gears. The fluid is then carried between the tips of the gears themselves and the wall housings towards the outlet port.

Hydraulic gear motors are one of the most reliable types of hydraulic components. This is due to the fact that they rarely result in any form of catastrophic breakdown. Instead, the gears themselves gradually wear down the main housing, which reduces the efficiency of the motor itself, until it is practically useless.

This means that it needs to be replaced long before it runs the risk of catastrophic or long-lasting system damage. As a result, they are also amongst the common designs and are widely used in most industries.
