Abstract:

A high-pressure pump for electro-rheological fluids in which the pump components operate with relatively large clearances and rely on the electro-rheological fluid effect for sealing. Preferably, the electro-rheological effect is induced in the fluid only in the region where a seal between relatively merging pump parts is required to generate a fluid pressure increase.
