Vane pumps feature sliding rectangular vanes that slot into a circular rotor. The rotor is supported in a cycloidal cam. During rotation, the vanes are compressed against the walls of the housing, which creates suction.
These types of pumps tend to be used in lower pressure applications. They can compensate for wear as the vanes extend outwards, meaning performance won’t suffer. They can also run dry for a short period of time, reducing the likelihood of a failure.
