Things You Need to Know About Gear Pumps

January 10th, 2020

Gear pumps use pairs of interlocking cogs to displace hydraulic fluids. The principle isn’t hard to understand, which is probably why the technology has been around for close to 400 years now. That’s good to know, for there are dozens of variations on a theme when it comes to hydraulic pumps. Thankfully, there’ll be no […]

Hydraulic Motor Damage Due to Temperature Shock: How Can this Be Prevented?

December 12th, 2019

If a winch system and crane lock-up because a hydraulic motor is experiencing some form of temperature shock, severe consequences may ensue. All functions lose momentum, then a system failsafe activates to prevent shear pin damage or a serious delay in the winch or boom’s operations. On troubleshooting the hydraulic motor, a temperature shock event […]

Hydraulics and Pneumatics: A Quick Review on Their Differences

December 9th, 2019

To make equipment and machines work, a certain type of actuator or mechanical systems must be installed. Machines, cars, power tools, and other products that require power benefit from mechanical systems, which can be grouped into two types. Hydraulics and pneumatics are both categorised under mechanical systems. Hydraulics and pneumatics are both controlled by valves […]

How Contaminants Affect the Reliability of Hydraulic Systems

November 19th, 2019

A hydraulic system is essential to making complex and fast-moving machines  work and function. It works by moving energy from a motor to an actuator through the use of pressurised fluid. This pressurised fluid acts in every part of a vessel and creates force or power. This force, whenever applied, can easily lift heavy loads […]

The Negative Effects of Overpressurization on Hydraulic Components

November 4th, 2019

A hydraulic pump is designed to run at a specific flow and pressure level, and so, bumping up the pressure level of the pump can cause negative effects on its internal components. This phenomenon, known as overpressurization, can degrade the overall quality of the hydraulic pump and will eventually cause its permanent failure. Effects of […]
