Compressor Components
Compressor Components

​Air conditioning and refrigeration systems all rely on a compressor – which is the heart of these appliances. Within each compressor are a number of components which have a long history of being made by PM technology.

Gear Pump Components

​Gear pumps are a common form of constant displacement fluid pumps used in many applications and products. The established capability of delivering highly precise and consistent gears makes PM an ideal technology for this application.

Planetary Rotor Pump

​GKN’s Planetary Rotor Pump is a totally new product that has significant advantages over established constant displacement pump designs. At the heart of this development is a novel method to increase performance: an inner rotor that it mated to a series of rotating planets by way of a fine toothed profile – resulting in improved sealing and unique characteristics.

Vacuum Pump Components
Vacuum Pump Components

​Most vehicles with petrol engines use the vacuum created by the engines to boost the response of the braking system. For diesel engines, hybrid vehicles, or during the warm up phase of petrol engines, there my be insufficient vacuum created.
