Parker Spotlights PC3 Variable Displacement Axial Piston Pump at IFPE 2020

Closed Circuit Medium Duty Axial Piston Pump – Compact. Powerful. Dependable.

Marysville, Ohio, February 10, 2020 - The Hydraulic Pump and Power Systems Division of Parker Hannifin Corporation, the global leader in motion and control technologies, has announced it will feature PC3, a variable displacement axial piston pump, designed to excel in medium duty applications, during the International Fluid Power Exposition (IFPE) trade show at Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV from March 10-14.

PC3, a variable displacement axial piston pump, is a compact, efficient and flexible solution that was built to last and serves a wide range of industries including oil & gas, agriculture, and material handling.


On-trend with hydraulic mobile systems decreasing in size, PC3 is a closed-circuit design, resulting in fewer components than an open circuit hydraulic pump. In addition to the closed-circuit design, it also offers a built-in bypass valve and hot oil shuttle valve eliminating the need for third-party components, conserving valuable system space.


To achieve greater hydraulic system efficiency and streamlined performance, PC3 includes a variety of features, such as:


- A hydraulic pressure override to ensure that the prime mover is not loaded in excess

- A built-in hot oil valve to increase operational efficiency and reduce system complexity

- Cross port reliefs to prevent system overload by limiting the maximum pressure in your system

Each of these features ensures system performance and efficiently deliver the exact power required for each unique application.

Finally, Parker’s PC3 offers the hydraulic pump market flexibility through various product features and sizes to use in a wide variety of applications. PC3’s modular and interchangeable controls include options for a manual servo, hydraulic proportional and electric proportional controls, providing end-users with further customizations.


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.






Once every three years, IFPE in conjunction with CONEXP-CON/AGG, the largest international gathering place for the construction industries, brings together 2.8 million plus net square feet of exhibits and more than 128,000 fluid power professionals.

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.
