Vickers® Engine-Driven Pump for Boeing's B737-600/700/800/900

P/N 849589 Model PV3-240-18

Flange Mounted Electrical Depressurization Valve (EDV) The EDV is flange mounted using two (2) threaded fasteners. All material strength requirements are identical.5 gpm (142 L/min) at 3750 rpm and a 2850 psi (19651 kPa). Many piece parts from the current model PV3-240 production models are incorporated in the new unit. and lower operating costs. The pressure compensator design also incorporates viscous dampening to improve dynamic stability. The design allows for the use of mid-grip helical thread locking inserts. This will reduce the operators’ spare part stock requirements. DESIGN FEATURES Model PV3-240-18 incorporates numerous design features to improve the reliability and maintainability of the unit. Double back-up rings provide improved seal support under high pressure conditions. 2 EATON Aerospace Group TF500-23A October 2013 . Improved Cylinder Block Material The cylinder block is machined from ductile iron to minimize wear in the drive spline and piston bores. Viscous dampening of the blocking valve piston retards the closure rate to allow sufficient decompression time for the system outlet fluid prior to valve closure. This state-of-the-art engine-driven pump offers superior performance. Leakage from the high pressure parting line seals at this interface has traditionally been one of the highest causes of removal of model PV3-240-2 and -10 series units. The design of the pump is drawn from Eaton’s Vickers product line of highly reliable 2. which reduces spare parts inventory requirements. This will reduce spare parts inventory. allowing for a smaller size impeller. Model PV3-240-18 incorporates the field proven. Boeing 737 Removable Valve Plate Separable valve plate design allows for ease of assemble and optimized material selection. Centrifugal Boost Impeller Swept blade boost impeller provides higher flow capability. Step diameter seal glands reduce the possibility of seal damage during assembly. Part Commonality Model PV3-240-18 design utilizes many parts common to other Eaton models. Bronze plating on the cylinder block surface provides a durable bearing surface for wear against the tool steel valve plate. Balanced Blocking Valve The outlet blocking valve is hydraulically balanced for rapid response and ease of manufacture. Most importantly. and minimizes envelope requirements. This is due to the fact that model PV3-240-18 is a counter clockwise rotation unit in the Boeing 737-600/700/800/900 application.Engine-Driven Pump Model PV3-240-18 Eaton’s Vickers® part number 849589 (model PV3-240-18) main Engine-Driven Pump (EDP) was specifically designed to meet the requirements of the Boeing 737-600/700/800/900 aircraft. higher horsepower to weight ratio. reduces package weight. it eliminates the parting line between the housing and the valve block.40 cu/in displacement pumps and has significant reduction in weight and volume. reliable model PV3-240-2 and -10 pump rotating components together with improved reliability and weight reduction technology developed from the B777 engine-driven pump program. Sleeved Actuator Piston Bore A removable AISI 52100 bearing quality steel provides the bearing surface for the actuator piston. Hollow Drive Shaft The drive shaft is hollow for weight reduction. The internal surface created by the weight reduction is coated for corrosion control. Single-piece Housing The single-piece housing design simplifies maintenance tasks. This eliminates the need for time consuming safety wiring of the shoe retaining plate threaded fasteners. Proven Shaft and Yoke Bearings All bearings used in model PV3-240-18 EDP carry the same part numbers as model PV3-240 series. Proven Yoke Design The yoke used in model PV3-240-18 is an exact “mirror image” of the field proven model PV3-240-10 series yoke. Increased Fatigue Strength All castings are designed for improved fatigue characteristics through specific structural design based on finite element analysis and use of improved casting materials. Pressure Compensator Stepped diameter seal glands simplify assembly/disassembly and minimize the risk of seal damage. It delivers 37 .

system inlet pressure forces fluid through a porting arrangement in the valve plate into the cylinder bore. the piston shoe continues following the yoke bearing surface. Typical Pump Characteristics A representative speed of 3750 rpm was used in developing curves EATON Aerospace Group TF500-23A October 2013 3 . Because the yoke is at an angle to the drive shaft.Engine-Driven Pump Model PV3-240-18 BASIC PUMP OPERATION The aircraft’s engine rotates the pump drive shaft. The piston shoes are restrained in the yoke by a piston shoe retaining plate and hold-down retainer during the intake stroke. The fluid contained in the bore is precompressed then expelled thought the valve block outlet port. As the piston begins to withdraw from the cylinder block. Discharge pressure holds the piston shoe against the yoke bearing surface during the discharge stroke and also provides the shoe pressure balance and fluid film through on orifice in the piston and shoe sub-assembly. and the connected cylinder block and pistons. This begins to return the piston into its bore. the rotary motion of the shaft is converted to piston reciprocating motion. As the drive shaft continues to turn the cylinder block. toward the valve block. Pumping action is generated by piston shoes which are restrained and slide on the shoe bearing plate in the yoke assembly.

at pump outlet pressure above 3025 psi (20857 kPa). the yoke angle decreases to nearly zero degrees stroke angle. pump displacement decreases as outlet pressure rises. the unit pumps only its internal leakage. and connects the actuator piston directly to the pump outlet. (In the schematic on page 5. This control pressure overcomes the yoke return spring force and strokes the pump yoke to a reduced angle. no fluid is admitted through the pressure compensator valve to the actuator piston and the pump remains at full displacement.) 4 EATON Aerospace Group TF500-23A October 2013 . The blocking valve is designed to open and remain open during normal pump operation. This depressurization and blocking feature can be used to reduce the load on the engine during start-up and.e. When there is no demand for flow from the system.Engine-Driven Pump Model PV3-240-18 With each revolution of the drive shaft and cylinder block each piston goes through the pumping cycle described above. High-pressure fluid is ported past the blocking valve to the pump outlet. completing one intake and one discharge stroke. The high pressure fluid pushes the compensator spool beyond its normal metering position. The case relief valve protects the pump against excessive case pressure. Depressurized Mode When the solenoid valve is energized. Thus.. delivering full flow. When pump outlet pressure (system pressure) exceeds the pressure setting. to isolate one pump for check out purposes. and the spool moves to admit fluid from the pump outlet into the actuator piston. Outlet fluid is also ported to the blocking valve spring chamber. This isolates the pump from the external hydraulic system. the pressure compensator is shown at cracking pressure. At pump outlet pressures below 3025 psi (20857 kPa). The lower displacement results in a corresponding reduction in pump flow. outlet fluid is ported to the EDV control piston on the end of the compensator. At system pressure below this level. This equalizes pressure on both sides of the blocking valve causing it to close due to the force of the blocking valve spring. The pump strokes itself to zero delivery at an outlet pressure that is equal to the pressure required on the actuator piston to reduce the yoke angle to nearly zero. The leakage is returned to the system through a case drain port. 3025 psi (20857 kPa). This removes the compensator from the circuit. The pump delivers only that flow required to maintain the desired pressure in the system. In this mode. i. Internal leakage keeps the pump housing filled with fluid for lubrication of rotating parts and cooling. pump outlet pressure just high enough to move the spool to begin to admit fluid to the actuator piston. The reduced angle of the yoke results in a shorter stroke for pistons and reduced displacement. it is held at its maximum angle in relation with the drive shaft centerline by the force of the yoke return spring. relieving it to the pump inlet. in a multiple pump system. CONTROL FEATURES Normal Pumping Mode The pressure compensator is a spool valve that is held in the closed position by an adjustable spring load. Pressure is then determined by the system demand. Decreasing system flow demand causes outlet pressure to become high enough to crack the compensator valve open and admit fluid to the actuator piston.
