GKH Commercial Hydraulics offers the Parker QPM3 which is a low pressure pump for high efficiency (up to 10 bar, flow rate from 20 to 80 L/min).
This range consists of the following:
SDV single/double medium pressure vane pumps – a fixed displacement vane pump that is ideal ideal for low to mid pressure applications of up to 2250psi. This series has a double pump to provide the flexibility of two different displacements in one housing. The single pump delivers one displacement in one housing. This pump’s compact design and low noise features makes this series well suited for filter carts, test stands, remote pilot pumps, and for hi/lo circuits.
Hybrid: piston and vane combination double and triple pumps – This pump offers a wide range of displacements and has a piston unit of 42 cm3/rev (SAE B) or 62 cm3/rev (SAE C). The vane unit ranges from 10 cm3/rev to 158 cm3/rev. The pump has one inlet, one shaft (no internal torque limitations) with pressure compensators.
Mobile vane pumps, T6 series – high pressure rating, silent technology, wide range of displacements and a double shaft seal option. This pump has a wide number of shafts available.
Vane pumps thru drive – Single, double and triple pumps. SAE A, SAE B or SAE C availability of the rear drive. 10 to 485 cm3/rev drive train pumps.
Hydrostatic transmission pumps – the company supplies gold cup pumps and motors for open and closed circuit applications with operating pressures of up to 6,000 psi (420 bar) and speeds of up to 3600 rpm. These pumps have a tough design, providing circuit reliability for the most severe applications. The sizes range from 6-30 cipr (100-500cc).

Hydraulic valves and accessories in Lusaka, Zambia
- Quality Parker hydraulic valves, accessories, parts and kits
- Up-to-date components and complete systems
- Company focuses on improving its clients productivity and profitability
GKH Commercial Hydraulics supplies its clients with hydraulic valves of the highest quality. The company distributes the following Parker hydraulic valves accessories, parts and kits:
Electrohydraulic servo valves (EHSV) – electrically operated valves that control how hydraulic fluid is loaded into an actuator. These valves are activated by transforming a changing analogue or digital input signal into a smooth set of movements in a hydraulic cylinder. Electrohydraulic servo valves (EHSV) can provide accurate control of position, velocity, pressure and force with good post movement damping characteristics.
This range comes in the following:
1) Parker 2/3 way ball valves – valves interrupt or facilitate medium flow. They can be optionally equipped with a locking device to avoid unauthorized opening and shut-off; they support the safety of the entire system.
2) BVAH high pressure ball valve – GKH Commercial Hydraulics supplies the BVAH series which is a 414 bar (6,000 PSI) ball valve with ports from 1¼” to 2″. This series is a 2-way shut-off valve used in applications with large ports.

These include bankable control valves, motion control valves, remote controllers, directional valves and manifold mounted directional and proportional valves.
Hydraulic needle valves
Used for speed controls on hydraulic and pneumatic systems where a reverse flow check is not needed, Hydraulic needle valves provide excellent control and a reliable shutoff in a very small envelope.
Hydraulic proportional valves
This range of valves offers powerful voice-coil valve technology, which allows higher flows from smaller valves. These valves deliver extremely high response of up to 300 Hz, and are offered with or without on-board control electronics.
Hydraulic seat valves
GKH Commercial Hydraulics offers a broad spectrum of hydraulic seat valves designed for directional control functions. Theses valves enable individual hydraulic solutions for nominal flow up due to a large variety of poppets, springs and covers, including shuttle valves, stroke limiters, solenoid valves and position control.
Hydraulic sequence valves
Sequence valves are used to control the sequence of operation of two or more hydraulic actuators. The valve’s pressure is set higher than the first actuator operation pressure. Once the first actuator has completed its cycle, the sequence valve opens, allowing the second actuator to move. Parker’s line of pilot-operated sequence valves include a series of internally piloted, externally drained valves and a series of externally piloted, internally vented valves.
