Seminar Overview

Being able to operate, maintain, and troubleshoot your own hydraulic equipment and systems starts with simply understanding how and why all the various components work.  This hydraulic repair and troubleshooting seminar provides the basic building blocks and knowledge needed to be proficient working with industrial hydraulics and fluid power. 

This seminar is $550 per day or $1100 for both days.

 

Day One - Discussion Topics

Day one of this hydraulic repair and troubleshooting course focuses on examining what hydraulic systems are and how they work. Students will start with an overview of hydraulic principles and progresses through hydraulic system components including pumps, valves, cylinders, motors, rotary actuators, accumulators and filters with emphasis placed on component structure and the identification of the components by the proper symbol as standardized by ANSI and ISO. Topics include:

  • Hydraulic Principles
  • Positive-Displacement Pumps
  • Flow Control Valves
  • Directional Control Valves
  • Check Valves
  • Hydraulic Cylinders
  • Hydraulic Motors
  • Hydraulic Rotary Actuators
  • Pressure Control Valves
  • Pilot Operated Pressure Control Valves
  • Accumulators
  • Fluid Conductors
  • Reservoirs, Heat Exchangers and Filters

Day Two - Discussion Topics

Day two builds on the knowledge gained on day one to include troubleshooting of your hydraulic system.  We know that it is critical to avoid downtime in your facility and our students will use this day to focus on maintaining an efficient system and doing it safely.
