Understanding the Importance of the Relationship between Pressure and Flow in a Hydraulic system?
Posted On: 29 October 2021

Two functions are performed when powering a hydraulic pump. It is the mechanical action which, initially creates a vacuum and enable the atmospheric pressure to drive and force oil from the hydraulic tank (reservoir) into the inlet port of the pump. Through this mechanical action the oil is then delivered to the outlet port and driven into the main hydraulic line feeding the system. It thus establishes that a hydraulic pump produces flow and NOT Pressure as is commonly thought.

 

 
Avoid fatalities with RELIABLE &SAFE Quick Release Couplings and Faster Multi Faster System
Posted On: 29 October 2021

As agricultural machine construction improves, the need for reliable coupling of lines on agricultural applications increases. There are risks and maintenance personnel, have to be extremely careful when connecting hoses and attachments to hydraulically powered tractors, implements and harvesters. There is no substitute for the use of a reliable, sturdy and efficient quick release couplings when connecting or disconnecting hydraulic lines.  

 
The importance of lube oil system filtration and monitoring
Posted On: 29 October 2021

THE viscosity of oil in a lube system and its impact on system bearings if not filtered appropriately can adversely impact on system performance and have catastrophic consequences and system non-performance. SKF states; “as long as particles larger than the lubricant film are removed, bearings can have an infinite life”.  Lubricants must be checked for contamination when the lube oil is delivered at the plant. Whether it is offline filtration or online filtration engineers should ensure the lube oil is clean and meets the system specifications.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND YOUR FILTRATION NEEDS? TRAINING IS ESSENTIAL!
Posted On: 14 April 2021

Contaminants such as solid, liquid, and gaseous particles are the bane of a hydraulic engineer. Systems over time become less efficient and ultimately will breakdown. This will be costly. These are neither generated externally or internally through fluids, component corrosion or wear and tear, or reduced systems maintenance and housekeeping. In difficult economic times, system maintenance is often relegated as a low priority. Cost savings exercises are adopted.

 
Can you afford not to filter effectively and control contamination?
