Avoid this one piston pump mistake
Hydraulic pumps are primarily designed to convert incoming prime mover energy into hydraulic energy, manifested as pressure and flow. The term hydrostatic refers to a state of pressure equilibrium, especially in a confined space. All traditional hydraulic applications are hydrostatic, and in most cases, if you shut down the pump, physical loads should hold fast […]
What are the different types of hydraulic valves?
Hydraulic valves, used in conjunction with actuators, help make hydraulics unique in its control of force, torque and motion. Valves govern the direction, pressure and flow of hydraulic fluid, enabling smooth, safe control of actuators. A valve’s purpose may be as simple as relieving pressure to protect your pump and actuator or as complex as […]
How do hydraulic brakes work?
Braking systems take advantage of the textbook offerings given by hydraulics — power, controllability and safety. Hydraulic brakes are fairly simple on the cover, requiring a hydraulic pump and a brake actuator. Vehicle braking systems may get by with only what are essentially two cylinders, one at the pump and the other at the brake. […]
What type of flow divider is best for my application?
By Josh Cosford, Contributing Editor Flow dividers provide a unique solution to a specific problem in hydraulic applications — splitting flow while limiting its tendency to take the path of least resistance. Without a flow divider, any time you wish to split flow to two or more downstream subcircuits, the path with the lowest pressure […]
