Aircraft Emergency Fuel Boost Pump

Many small propeller-driven aircraft benefit from a two-speed pump that maintains fuel pressure while cruising, but boosts fuel delivery for takeoff and landing.

One aircraft pump manufacturer consulted Allied Motion seeking such a two-speed fuel pump motor solution. Allied’s design team engineered a unique solution in which a standard Endurance brush DC motor was modified to accept two different voltages, enabling our customer to supply a reliable two-speed pump that doesn’t stall, as was the case with some other motors they tried previously.
