Tandem Vacuum & Variable Displacement
The push for greater fuel economy and performance has driven vehicle manufacturers to turbocharge engines, resulting in the need to provide brake boost via vacuum pumps. The SLPT Global Pump Group has developed a tandem pump that combines our variable displacement oil pump technology, along with a technology leading vacuum pump, in a compact, space efficient, single drive system. This system has shown industry leading low parasitic torque, while providing a unique drive system which improves wear and performance of the vacuum pump.
- Variable oil pump: two stage, or fully variable solenoid control
- Off axis mounting
- Plastic vacuum vanes and vane tips for improved NVH and durability
