What Are Pump Vanes?
Vane profiles are essential components in vane pumps, which are a type of rotary positive displacement pump. The vanes attach to a cylindrical rotor and create distinct compartments for fluid to be trapped and transported around the rotor.
Vane pumps can have sliding or flexible vanes. Sliding vanes slide into slots on the rotor and move outward when a centrifugal force pushes them toward the cam ring surrounding the rotor — these are the types of vanes Bekaert can manufacture for your project.
