The Vickers GD5 series gear pumps are a range of small, light and compact geared positive displacement pipework pumps available in both single and twin screw configurations. The GD5 pumps are designed for applications where a high flow rate is required with low noise levels and simple maintenance requirements.
The GD5 series of gear pumps are designed for use in low pressure, clean water or non-corrosive liquids where the viscosity is not too high. They are ideally suited for handling chemicals, food products, paints and inks etc. The GD5 series pumps can also be used in waste water applications where the temperature does not exceed 40 deg C (104 deg F).
Vickers GD5 Series gear pump are high pressure units that provide long life in a compact, efficient design.
The GD5 series features a wide variety of pump types and shaft configurations to meet the needs of your application. The standard configuration includes an internal gear pump, which can be upgraded to include an external gearbox with or without shaft extensions. Vickers offers several different output options including single or double output, right angle output and horizontal output.
Vickers offers several different materials such as steel, aluminum, stainless steel and cast iron for all components in the gear pump design. The standard material is carbon steel with optional stainless steel or aluminum housings available depending upon your application requirements.
These gear pumps are versatile and can be used as stand-alone pumps, or in combination with other pumps to provide cooling systems for difficult industrial applications.

The Vickers GD5 Series Gear Pump is available in a range of sizes varying from 2″ to 16″ (50mm – 400mm) diameter, with flow rates from 0.2 gallons per minute (0.75 litres per minute) up to 60 gallons per minute (240 litres per minute). They are designed for both open and closed loop operation, with typical operating pressures up to 125 psi (86 bar), although higher pressures can be accommodated on special request.
The Vickers GD5 Series Gear Pump is manufactured from high quality materials that have been carefully selected for their ability to withstand the corrosive environments found in many industrial processes today.
Used extensively on machine tools and other high pressure hydraulic systems with confined mounting space.
The GD5 is a compact, low cost gear pump for high pressure applications. The GD5 series of gear pumps are used extensively on machine tools and other high pressure hydraulic systems with confined mounting space. The GD5 series has an external profile that allows easy mounting in tight spaces.
The GD5 series has been designed to provide long life, trouble free operation and ease of maintenance. The proven design provides accurate metering while maintaining a small physical size and weight. The powerful single stage helical gear train provides high pumping speeds with excellent efficiency and performance characteristics. The advanced design allows for reliable operation over the entire temperature range of -30°C to 100°C (up to 130°C for short periods).
Standard features include brass gears and pinion shafts, ductile iron housings, threaded end cover ports, ball bearings, and a choice of mounting positions.
The GD5 Series Gear Pumps are designed for applications where a positive displacement pump is needed. The GD5 Series Gear Pumps have been designed to be used in the chemical, petroleum, wastewater treatment and other industries. The GD5 Series Gear Pumps are available with a variety of different bore sizes and shaft options.
The Vickers GD5 Series Gear Pumps are available in standard configurations as well as custom configurations to meet your specific needs. They can be ordered with stainless steel bearings and shafts, brass gears and pinion shafts, or cast iron gears and pinion shafts depending on the application requirements. They can also be ordered with other materials such as carbon steel or aluminum if needed.
The Vickers GD5 Series Gear Pumps are available with a variety of different ports on the end cover that include threaded ports, flanged ports or plain ends depending on what type of mounting position you need for your application.
The GD5 Series Gear Pumps incorporate the patented WINGMAN bearing support which protects bearings from external axial loads that would otherwise cause premature failure.
The WINGMAN design provides support to the outer races while allowing for thermal expansion and contraction of bearings. This allows for greater reliability and longer life than other designs.
The GD5 Series Gear Pumps are designed for use in high-pressure hydraulic systems for industrial, hydraulic and agricultural applications. They are ideal for use in a wide range of applications including material handling, mining, construction, agriculture and more.
An optional internal hydraulic relief valve is available on some models.
The GD5 series gear pumps are designed for heavy-duty applications. The pump body is constructed of cast iron and the cover is made of cast aluminum. These pumps are available in both single stage and two stage designs with NEMA 4X enclosure ratings, IP68 rated protection against water immersion, and UL/CSA approvals. The GD5 series gear pumps are designed for use with low viscosity oils, hydraulic fluids and other fluids that have a temperature range of -20°F to 250°F (–29°C to 121°C).
The GD5 series gear pump has a maximum pressure rating of 3000 PSIG (207 bar) at 100 RPM when using SAE 30 oil or higher viscosity fluid. Piston rods feature bronze bushings for high wear resistance and long life. A variety of mounting options are available including flange mount, pipe mount or base mount configurations as well as special mounting configurations such as inline mounting on common industrial frames or skids.
Vickers GD5 Series Pumps are reliable and effective for many applications.
GD5 Series Gear Pumps are designed for industrial applications where efficiency and reliability are essential. The GD5 Series is available in single-stage positive displacement or two-stage positive displacement configurations with a variety of shaft sizes and mounting options.
GD5 Series Gear Pumps are constructed from heavy-duty materials to ensure long life in severe service environments. It has an overload protection system that reduces wear on components from excessive pressure surges and prevents damage in the event of an overload condition. The overload protection system includes a thermal element that opens when abnormal operating temperatures are detected, which prevents damage to the pump if an overload condition occurs during start-up or shutdown periods when the pump may be running at lower speeds due to reduced flow requirements.
We hope that this article was able to educate you about the many benefits of a Vickers GD5 Series Gear Pump. If it can find use in your plant, we trust that you’ll be able to find the perfect pump for your application in our electric gear pump selection.
