The America's Cup is the world's largest sailing event, involving yacht clubs from around the world. The event has been running since 1851, and has seen the introduction of cutting edge sailing technology over the last one and a half centuries that it has been competing. The foiling catamarans, examples of precision engineering at its finest, are manoeuvred by six people who control the sails, the foil, the wing and rudder. Each boat is broadly similar, as the design, shape and size i...

To the hydraulic system maintenance engineer, it can be both normal and alarming that hydraulic oil contains air.Nonetheless, it’s part of hydraulic fluid’s natural composition to contain between 6% - 12% of dissolved air. The trouble starts if this air transforms into being a form that is not dissolved, and it can lead to serious trouble!If the air makes its way into the pump intake, then air can then transform into entrained air. The problem with this is that it can spoil the stiff...

Designers working on hydraulic systems often opt straight for high working pressures, often due to the availability of components that are tried and tested as working well together. There may also be a requirement to use a certain manufacturer or part in the design, specified due to cost, stock and other business reasons. Designers often also like to use high pressures to reduce the cylinder diameters for aesthetic reasons, as well as design specific reasons; if a system would not fit in the des...

Many hydraulic systems leak. In fact, some businesses can and do waste vast amounts of money by not being serious about tracking down and rectifying fluid leakages on their machines. As with any task, it’s critical that you start at the beginning.We recommend to our clients that they keep a record of how much oil is going into any system, and how much oil comes out when it’s time to do a swap out. If you put in a certain number of litres, but you’re getting less out, you know t...
