Basic Hydraulics Training that Helps Downsize Your Downtime

Understanding how hydraulics work and being able to read hydraulic schematics are keys to doing a better job of troubleshooting hydraulic problems and reducing the length of hydraulic-related downtime.

Knowing the most common causes of hydraulic component failure, and having ways to deal with those causes, are keys to preventing hydraulic component failure and hydraulic-related downtime.

Our "Basic Hydraulics" courses focus on how to reduce hydraulic-related downtime and keep hydraulic components operating efficiently. The courses teach how to read hydraulic schematics, how "hydraulics" work, functions and operation of all common hydraulic components, how to improve the efficiency of hydraulic equipment, how common hydraulic circuits work, and howto keep hydraulic components from breaking down.

The Customized Basic Hydraulics courses go one step further. While teaching how to read hydraulic schematics and how hydraulic components work together, the customized courses use your hydraulic schematics and focuses on your hydraulic circuits.

Do You Need the Basic Hydraulics Course?

Here's a five question quiz to help you decide if your company needs this course. Please Note: the only question you really need to get right is #5.

1) What is the #1 cause of hydraulic component failure?

2) Identify the nine components shown in this circuit and describe the function of each one:

3) With the pump's compensator set at 1,000 psi, the cylinder extends in 4 seconds at a system pressure of 700 psi. If you increase the pump compensator's setting to 1,400 psi, how long will it take the cylinder to extend?

4) If the system shown in the drawing is overheating, what is the most likely cause, and how do you fix it?

5) Can the personnel involved with your hydraulic equipment answer questions one through four correctly?
