Practical Applications of High-Pressure Hydraulic Valves

Blog | January 9th, 2023

Heavy machinery and production equipment used in manufacturing chemicals and petroleum depend on high-pressure hydraulic valves to accomplish heavy lifting and movement. These valves may also be used to lubricate fixed industrial gears and other moving sections of the machinery. Heavy equipment, such as backhoes, excavators, and bulldozers, employ high-pressure hydraulic valves in their movement, steering, and braking systems. Without these components, the efficiency of these commercial machines would have very little value and usage in large-scale applications.

Mobile Hydraulic Specialties is widely regarded as an industry leader in the applied technology of hydraulic valves, along with the related parts and components.

Reliability in Hydraulics Technology

Reliable hydraulics technology has continued to advance, providing engineers with flexible and dependable means to perform tasks where high payloads and the precise movement of cargo and materials are required in ongoing labour-intensive situations. These situations include loading docks, the tops of skyscrapers, and other locations in which other methods would be nearly impossible to implement.

Fundamental Component Of The Hydraulic System

This component uses high-pressure reservoirs and fluid amplifiers to store and transfer power while mitigating the effects of shock. Rams and pistons, as well as lifting arms, are utilised to establish trust and movement. Rams and pistons, as well as lifting arms, are distinct iterations of high-pressure hydraulic valves. These valves take fluid pressure and direct it through sealed hoses to the particular ram or arm. Utilizing direction control valves to minimise back flow and pressure loss allows for consistent pressure flow and direction to be maintained, which is an important safety feature.

Zero-Leak Hoses, Seals, And Connections

The pressure in the hydraulic circuit is kept constant by utilising zero-leak hoses, seals, and connections, all of which are readily capable of keeping a pressure of more than 3000 psi constant. A pressure fuse or circuit is installed inside the system to provide an additional layer of defence against catastrophic failure or damage. This fuse or circuit can redirect excess pressure, assist in reducing fluctuation, and even set off alarms if serious issues arise within the pressure circuit. Fluid is drained from the system and stored in reservoirs while the overpressure is gradually reduced. It is possible to store some of the fluid as a reserve system in case of a pressure drop or to compensate for leaks.

Required Moving Components

Filtration of metals and other potentially dangerous particles is required inside hydraulic systems to provide moving components with the highest possible level of protection and extend their lifespan. There are also concerns with the seal and leaks, which can enable air and moisture to enter the hydraulic circuit. This can lead to significant performance issues and possible damage to the expensive moving parts.

Use Of Aircraft Quality Seals, O-Rings, And Fittings

Leaks within seals, connectors, and fitting joints are a constant worry, and the use of aircraft-quality seals, o-rings, and fittings afford the worry-free operation of weight-bearing lifts and thrusting capabilities within these robust machines while providing longer in-service life cycles to these high-pressure hydraulic valves and components.
