Section II - DESCRIPTION
As the rotor is driven by the driveshaft, the vanes generate
fluid flow by carrying fluid around the elliptical ring contour

with shaft side loads hydraulically balanced. The flow rate
depends on the pump size and the speed at which it is

B. ASSEMBLY AND CONSTRUCTION
The V200 series pump illustrated in cutaway in Figure
1 is representative of all single pumps in this series. The
