An Overview of Hydraulic Motors, Equipment, and Repair

Hydraulic Pump

This portion of the power system is responsible for moving the fluid along the lines. It collects its power from an engine of some type. Then, it uses various couplers to transfer that power to the rest of the system. While this doesn’t sound that strong, this part has ten times the power of its electric equivalent. That’s what makes hydraulic pump repair so important; without it, the entire system will be at a standstill.

What Are Hydraulics?

This system uses fluid to cause something to charge, swing, swivel, turn, or otherwise move in some manner. In order to do this, the liquid travels through hydraulic motors, cylinders, pumps, valves, hoses, and tubes to condense the molecules and create the pressure that powers equipment. The pressure forces the cylinder on the other side to move, powering whatever it is connected to.

Hydraulic Motors

These differ from pumps and other similar systems in that it works with pressure on both sides of the part rather than just one. In all, there are three main styles. The most simplistic of these is a gear and vane style that is used only in small situations. Axial plunger models are used when the system requires a rotating drive at low speeds. The piston style axial plunger motor is the most common style used in this form of power system. To move large amounts of fluid at slow speeds, radial plunger motors are put into place.
