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 […]
