A Comprehensive Comparison between Industrial and Mobile Hydraulics

Blog | March 7th, 2022

The construction industry has to maximise mini diggers in reaching small access areas and excavating the ground. The automotive industry, alternatively, must design the braking system of the cars smartly to ensure that it works whenever necessary. The material handling industry, ultimately, uses cranes to move huge loads from one place to another without any problems.

What is common about these industries is they can only carry out these tasks if hydraulic systems are involved. One great thing about hydraulics is they can utilise pressurised fluid to generate the needed mechanical energy of equipment pieces and systems. They are also easy to control and simple to maintain. But given the various requirements of machines and tools, manufacturers have generated industrial and mobile hydraulic systems to give industries some options.

Industrial Hydraulics

Industrial hydraulics are hydraulic systems that are often used in powering equipment pieces intended for manufacturing, printing, stamping, metal forming, and other industrial processes. Since these processes are expected to run for hours, industrial hydraulics are designed to boast varying sizes without any limitations. Even their overall configuration and design do not have any limit and are not affected by outdoor elements, making sure that they can fit any machines and equipment pieces.

And since they do not have any limitations on practically anything, the costs of buying industrial hydraulics and their components can be higher compared to their mobile counterparts. As for system controls, industrial hydraulics maximise custom integrated manifold circuits and stacked valves to make them work, allowing them to work effectively during day-to-day industrial operations.

The drawbacks of industrial hydraulics mainly involve their energy use and environmental effect. Since they do are not limited with their overall specifications, they can easily utilise components that will make them run for a long time. And since a lot of industrial hydraulics have not yet adopted modern systems, they are expected to run inefficiently and consume more energy.

Mobile Hydraulics

Mobile hydraulics, alternatively, are hydraulic systems that are utilised in mobile and compact equipment pieces. Some of the most notable machines where mobile hydraulics are used include cranes, excavators, telescopic handlers, and mowers. What is common about these machines is they are often exposed to varying outdoor conditioners. Through mobile hydraulics, they can effectively carry out outdoor operations without any difficulties.

There are various reasons why mobile hydraulics are highly recommended to run the mentioned equipment pieces. For one, they maximise load sensing system controls, allowing them to effectively gauge downstream pressure and provide efficient operations. Mobile hydraulics likewise can free up weight for load-carrying capacity, minimise environmental emissions, and operate effectively despite encountering various elements like water, dust, heat, and others.

Mobile hydraulic systems, however, still have some drawbacks. For one, they are restricted to spaces that can fit them appropriately. And so, manufacturers must deal with the properties of mobile hydraulic components without compromising their desired operation output. Mobile hydraulics also must deal with weight limitations as mobile machines can only work with systems that do not add too much weight.
