When you’re really serious about pumping fuel and oil
One of the areas where drone makers are trying to get away from using repurposed hobbyist gear is in fuel and oil pumps. That’s why The Lee Co. was showing these high-quality multi-piston hydraulic pumps at Xponential. These use brushless dc motors and a 0 to 10-V input to control flow. Ratings are 200 pph at 300 psig. The smaller of the two weighs less than 0.4 lb. The larger unit — sometimes found in catapults, Lee says — weighs about a pound. Both are rated to work for 1,000 hours.
