Digital Displacement pump wins prestigious award

The Danfoss DDP096 Digital Displacement pump has won Agritechnica’s Systems & Components Trophy 2022

The Danfoss DDP096 Digital Displacement pump has been named a winner of Agritechnica’s Systems & Components Trophy 2022.

The award recognises components that can make a substantial contribution to the development of agricultural machinery.

The pump is designed to deliver hydraulic fluid power with both high efficiency and controllability and uses solenoid valves to control each cylinder on a shaft-turn-by-shaft-turn basis. The technology offers a fast response rate and reduces energy losses by up to 90% compared with conventional pumps. In addition, groups of cylinders can be brought out to the endplate for independent control, creating a multi-service pump in a compact package. Original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) can take advantage of up to three separately controllable outputs from a single pump body.

The awards jury comprised development engineers from leading agricultural OEMs and judging criteria included practical significance and benefits to profitability, processes, environment, energy use, workload, and safety.

“The fact that industry development engineers recognised our product as an outstanding innovation makes it even more significant and highlights the advantages Digital Displacement can bring to OEMs in the agriculture sector,” commented Danfoss Power Solutions director of product portfolio and marketing for digital displacement Alasdair Robertson.
