Aircraft Hydraulic Pumps

AeroControlex is a leading designer and manufacturer of aircraft hydraulic pumps for the aerospace market. Our products are customized to meet new development requirements and solve existing problems.

AeroControlex has extensive experience in the design and manufacturing of aircraft hydraulic pumps for propeller feathering and various aircraft system applications. These hydraulic pumps are either shaft or electric motor driven, and often designed as modules to incorporate numerous functions such as filtration, bypass, relief, pressure and temperature sensing, and integral reservoirs. Each aircraft hydraulic pump is designed and sized to meet the flow and pressure requirements needed while optimizing weight, envelope, power draw and durability Please see the table below for the typical operating parameters of these hydraulic pumps.
