Hydraulic lock, sometimes referred to as hydrolock, is a condition that affects all engines and motors that use fluids, and can even affect steam engines in some cases, where steam condenses and water remains inside the compression chamber. It mostly occurs on starting up, but can occur during operation as well, for instance when a car drives through a puddle and water enters the piston chambers, flooding the engine. When fluid enters the compression chamber (over the clearance volume) it rest...

To ensure the smooth running of your fluid hydraulic power systems, it’s critical to schedule consistent maintenance of cylinders. Here are five hints on getting this right:Regular inspections. Check whether the rod has any pitting, corrosion or uneven wear. Uneven wear could signal an impending disaster for the entire hydraulic system. Corrosion may indicate too much moisture either in the fluid itself or ambient moisture. It could also speed up wear on seals. Pitting can also lead to sea...
