FAQs About Hydraulic Systems
Q: What is a hydraulic system?
A: A hydraulic system uses pressurized fluid to power everything from car brakes and landing gear, to garbage trucks, motorboat steering, forklifts, elevators, cranes, heavy digging equipment, robotics, logging equipment, and many other types of machinery.
Hydraulic systems include components that contain the fluid, apply the pressure, and convert the energy that is generated into making your machinery move. The parts consist of oil reservoirs, pumps, valves, cylinders, hoses, safety devices and other components.
Q: What types of fluid are used in a hydraulic system?
A: Water-based fluids are used for their fire-resistance but may evaporate at high temperatures and don’t provide as much lubrication as other fluids. Man-made synthetic fluids can be effective in high-pressure and high-temperature systems, but petroleum-based fluids are the most widely used. They are inexpensive and can be customized to include rust and oxidation inhibitors, demulsifiers, anti-corrosion agents, and extreme pressure agents.
Q: How is pressure controlled in a hydraulic system?
A: Pressure control valves are the most common method of controlling pressure. They play a vital role in regulating the pressure of the fluid passing through pipes or tubing to prevent leakage and bursting. They are found in virtually every hydraulic system and include counter-balance valves, unloading valves, sequence valves, and other valves that work in different ways to control pressure fluctuations.
Q: What is an open center or closed center hydraulic system?
A: Performing hydraulic work requires flow and pressure. The ability to control them is made possible with open center and closed center systems. With an open center system, oil continuously flows through the directional control valve whether or not the oil is being used. In other words, the flow is continuous and the pressure is intermittent. In a closed center system, the valve communicates with the pump so that the flow stops when a work section is not being used. In other words, the flow is intermittent but the pressure is continuous.
