Parker’s PC3 Compact Closed-Circuit Pump Delivers High Performance

Marysville, Ohio, July 17, 2019  - The Hydraulic Pump and Power Systems Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, today announces the launch of the PC3, a variable displacement axial piston pump designed to excel in medium duty applications. The PC3 is a high performing, robust compact solution that was built to last and serves a wide range of industries including oil & gas, construction, agriculture, transportation, and material handling.

The PC3 comes in ten standard displacement (cc) options: 7, 11,18, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 45, 52 and in three different frame sizes to help customers choose the best option for their medium duty applications. Displacement sizes 7 to 20 are rated at 210 BAR and 3600 RPM while sizes 25 to 52 are rated at 300 BAR and 3400 RPM during continuous operation.

The PC3 comes with a variety of built-in features to increase system efficiency and streamline performance. These features include a hot oil shuttle valve, hydraulic pressure overrides, cross port reliefs, and bypass valve which reduce the need for third-party components and help protect your pump. When combined with the various modular and inter-changeable controls (Manual Servo, Hydraulic Proportional, Electric Proportional, Direct Swashplate) the PC3 will efficiently deliver the exact power you need when operating your application.


“The compact design, easy to use controls, and multiple options of the PC3 product line make it a great fit in any medium duty application that requires high reliability and system efficiency over the life of your machine,” said Justin Wheeler, product manager.  The PC3 was designed for a variety of medium duty applications such as; mini skids, road sweepers, pavers, trenchers, and harvesters. Learn more about the versatile PCat at the upcoming trade show, International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) October 1st - 3rd, 2019.


About Hydraulic Pump and Power Systems

A global technology leader, the Parker Hydraulic Pump and Power Systems Division brings nearly a century of combined experience. Our division is the result of the Parker piston pump business’s acquisition of Denison Hydraulics in 2004 and now our merger with the Parker Oildyne Division. Since before WWII, Denison products have been excelling in military test stand and shipboard hydraulic applications. This acquisition allowed us to enhance the design, manufacturing and application of piston products in both open- and closed-circuit applications. With the addition of Oildyne, we have extended our offering to include the quality compact hydraulic products and systems the division has been pioneering since 1955. Like the miniature piston pumps Oildyne manufactures, it’s been a smart fit.
