Excessive deflection will cause damage to the surrounding body and/or contribute to rotating bend fatigue which will ultimately result in shaft breakage. The following is the general form of the deflection equation, ©1999 CRC Press LLC y= F × L3 < radial clearance c×E×I (39) where “F” is the summation of the hydraulic forces, “L” is the bearing span, “c” is a constant, “E” is the shaft material modulus of elasticity, and “I” is the shaft moment of inertia. The shaft moment of inertia is a function of “D4,” where “D” is the effective shaft diameter.

Drive gear is cantilever, vs. between-bearings arrangement of external gear pumps. A cantilever design requires a bigger shaft, to minimize deflections. This may shorten seal life. These pumps are simple to assemble and repair, with little training, and, when applied appropriately, can do the job well and inexpensively. The issues are similar to the external gear pumps — close clearances, with possibility of contact, wear or galling, if stainless construction (in which case wearplates made from carbon or bronze are required).
