The amount of flow produced by the Parker Piston Pump is dependent upon the length of stroke of the pumping pistons. This length of stroke, in turn, is determined by the position of the swash plate. Maximum flow is achieved at an angle of 17°.
The rotating piston barrel, driven by the prime mover, moves the pistons in a circular path and the piston slippers are supported hydrostatically against the face of the swash plate. When the swash plate is in a vertical position, perpendicular to the centerline of the piston barrel, there is no piston stroke and consequently no fluid displacement. When the swash plate is positioned at an angle, the pistons are forced in and out of the barrel
and fluid displacement takes place. The greater the angle of the swash plate, the greater the piston stroke.
The centerline of the pumping piston assembly is offset from the centerline of the swash plate. Therefore, as shown on the accompanying Figure 1A, the pistons’ effective summation force tends to destroke the swash plate to a vertical (neutral) position. This destroking force is balanced as the swash plate is angled by the force of the servo piston.
