This paper describes the design and experimental evaluation of a vane-type fuel pump that has operated successfully at speeds up to 49,500 rpm and outlet pressures up to 900 psig. The objective of the research was to produce a main-engine fuel pump for small gas-turbine engines capable of operating at engine shaft speed in order to reduce the bulk and complexity of the required gear drive train. The pump has a design JP-4 turbine-fuel flow rate of 2000 lb/hr at 650 psig. The successful completion of a 200-hr endurance run has verified that the high-speed capabilities have been achieved without sacrificing pump endurance life.
