The technology used in hydraulics has changed greatly since its inception so how has hydraulics evolved and improved over the years?

This article focuses on the common problems associated with hydraulic systems and how these issues can affect individual components as well as the systems themselves. It gives an in-depth insight into how problems initially develop, any knock on effects and how failures can happen if the issue isn’t diagnosed correctly.

AC motors run on alternating current delivery, exactly as domestic electrical power is delivered to the home. Both the voltage and frequency are different across the world, and appliances designed for sale in a particular country must be able to cope with the power supply in that area, as using the wrong type of appliance with the wrong power supply could cause a fire or electrocution. It might be annoying having to take travel adaptors to different countries (especially so if you forget it with...

Hydraulic motors and pumps, like all hydraulic equipment, need adequate lubrication to function properly. A lack of lubrication causes moving parts to grind against each other, causing wear and tear and also generating heat – both things which cause severe yet preventable damage to the equipment. Unfortunately, many people operating hydraulic machinery are unaware of the science behind it, and do not understand why dry starting a motor or pump is a bad idea, especially if they have been told ...

Smartphones have revolutionised the way we work and live in a very short space of time; “there's an app for that” may have been the slogan that launched a thousand apps but it's definitely true, whatever you need help with there is an app designed specifically for that purpose. Some apps are designed to fulfil a particular function that can be applied over several uses, such as torch apps, compasses and even scales (which use the ability to sense pressure to weigh items on the phone s...

Working with hydraulic machinery involves a certain degree of trouble shooting and problem solving, even people who operate the equipment and are not involved in maintenance and repair, should have some basic knowledge of what can go wrong and what to look out for. When it comes to diagnosing and solving problems with hydraulic machinery there are several things that should be checked, and just as many tips and tools to help you do so.

Each of us who maintain a hydraulic system is aware of how complex a system it is. However, another item that needs to be maintained, as part of that package is any schematic drawings of it. Although you won’t need to replace the drawings as you would some components, if you don’t maintain your drawings, you will find that they are no longer accurate and could reach the point of becoming meaningless and therefore useless.

With hydraulic fluid contamination being the cause of more than 75% of hydraulic system failures, it’s important to know how to reduce it.Hydraulic fluid contamination can cause many negative effects. For example, it can degrade fluid and prematurely age it. It can also raise the rate of internal leakage which will impact on performance and also decrease the efficiency of components such as motors, cylinders and pumps. Valves that have been affected by contamination will have a greater challeng...
