The Danfoss DDP096 digital displacement pump was recently named a winner of Agritechnica’s prestigious Systems & Components Trophy 2022.
Presented by the German Agricultural Society, the award recognizes the inventive spirit of industry suppliers and their importance to agricultural technology. Danfoss’s digital displacement pump was one of three winners from among 20 nominees.
Delivering hydraulic fluid power with both high efficiency and controllability, the digital displacement pump 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. Additionally, it is possible to bring groups of cylinders out to the endplate for independent control, creating a multiservice pump in a compact package. Original equipment manufacturers 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. Judging criteria included practical significance and benefits to profitability, processes, environment, energy use, workload, and safety.
Alasdair Robertson, director of product portfolio and marketing for Digital Displacement, Danfoss Power Solutions, accepted the award at a virtual event held Feb. 8 as part of the Agritechnica 2022 digital program.
