GPM Gear Motor for Marine Applications

Friday, 6 February 2015 10:17:50 Europe/London

A new customer, a well-established marine engineering company, contacted our sales team looking for a hydraulic motor to replace an obsolete Hamworthy gear motor. We are regularly tasked with sourcing seemingly obsolete or discontinued hydraulic components, or swapping original hydraulic equipment into modern, off-the-shelf standard products, with minimal, if any, re-engineering… so the team had no problem in identifying the gear motor that the customer needed - in this case a GPM  pump.

Features of the equivalent gear motor include:
