Maintenance Hydraulics Course

Maintenance Hydraulics Course

Maintenance Hydraulics Course (Code: MH)

1. Aims

  1. To impart a basic understanding of maintenance hydraulics
  2. To increase the knowledge of personnel who are actively engaged on the repair and maintenance of hydraulic systems
  3. To allow participants to become familiar with fluid power technologies such as pump flow, cylinder speed, forces and pipe sizes
  4. Introduce basic hydraulic theory in a practical way
  5. To increase the knowledge of personnel in maintenance and fault-finding techniques associated with hydraulic systems
  6. To enable participants to understand their specific hydraulic installation and circuit diagrams
  7. To gain hands-on experience of building, fault-finding and optimising hydraulic circuits using our range of specially designed training rigs
  8. To introduce participants to proportional control, optimising and fault-finding
