Importance of Filtration and Conditioning of Hydraulic Pumps

Blog | December 15th, 2015

In comparing electrical circuitry to hydraulic flow, we’ve discovered similarities. There are switching and branching instances in both systems. Resistance slows electrical current and a physical impedance slows the circulation of a fluid. Replete with comparisons, the analogy also extends to the pure state of the circulating medium,. Electricity must be clean of voltage spikes […]

Differences between Pneumatic and Hydraulic Equipment

Blog | December 4th, 2015

It doesn’t take much effort to research the basics and see how pneumatic systems are engaged by air while hydraulic power is all about fluid. These two facts are well-established but can still be lost in the shuffle as equipment considerations enter the discussion. If a layperson picks up some device, pneumatic equipment, for example, […]

Applications of Hydraulic and Pneumatic Valves

Blog | November 18th, 2015

The principles that govern pneumatic technology are tantalizingly similar to those that govern hydraulic systems. Both energy transmitting mediums are pressurized and pushed through a network of tubes and channels. Both the air of the pneumatic system and the fluid of the hydraulic system store this energy, using it to open valves and power actuators. […]

Hydraulic Sales and Services In Victoria

Blog | November 9th, 2015

The art of selling a hydraulic component and the craft of servicing that same component seem unrelated. After all, apart from the fact these two disciplines focus on a single part, they’re very different beasts. But, funnily enough, these two business-oriented attributes often enjoy each other’s company. Why should this relationship exist? Well, a service […]

Uses of Hydraulic Vane Motors

Blog | October 27th, 2015

One of the first people to construct a hydraulic motor was William Armstrong; a well-known scientist, inventor and philanthropist. (1810–1900). He invented the hydraulic accumulator; a cast-iron cylinder that was fitted with a plunger that supported a very heavy weight. The plunger was raised slowly as it pulled in water. The plunger lifted until the […]

Custom Made Hydraulic Systems for Your Construction Needs

Blog | September 28th, 2015

The difference between hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems is the method used to transfer power from point to point. Hydraulic systems employ pumps to apply pressure / force on fluids (i.e.: water, oil, etc.) between points, while pneumatic systems transfer power using compressed gas (i.e.: air, nitrogen, etc.). Pressure increases and performs the work during […]

The Significance of Fluid Filtration and Conditioning in Hydraulic Equipment

Blog | September 11th, 2015

If the hydraulic lines and reservoirs that thread through a powered mechanism can be compared to any biological process, it would be the circulatory network that sends oxygen through the human body. Hydraulic pumps are substituted by the human heart in this organic metaphor, and filtration is handled by the kidneys, an organ that faithfully […]

Benefits of Onsite Service and Testing of Hydraulic Equipment

Blog | August 19th, 2015

A reputable mobile hydraulics company is always more than happy to troubleshoot a product when problems occur. The client can unmount the device or have it professionally detached so that the internal mechanism can be evaluated for issues at a local shop. Of course, this familiar procedure is a little limiting. It restricts the inspection […]

What Are Industrial Electric Motors?

Blog | August 11th, 2015

Industrial Electric motors are workhorse mechanisms. They convert electrical energy into mechanical momentum, turning pure wire-trapped current flow into raw radial motion. The technology that operates behind an electrical motor is justifiably complex. These aren’t toy motors, after all, mechanisms driven by a battery and a few windings of wire to create a magnetic field […]
