Advantages of fluid power technology

  • Highly efficient – generate a large amount of power in a limited space
  • Accurate fluid power control of direction, speed, force & torque of fluid power with the use of simple control valves
  • Compact and lightweight ratio to its high horsepower
  • Spark-free processes & high-temperature tolerances, safe for a range of industries
  • Strategically combinational with other technologies such as sensors, microprocessors & transducers
  • Produces linear motions, unlike electrical & mechanical methods that requires rotational conversion methods

 

Fluid power applications

Fluid power technology, also known as hydraulic power or pneumatic power, enables the conversion of power into a more usable form through hydraulic or pneumatic processes.

Fluid power is used in a wide range of hydro pneumatic industries including construction, agricultural, mining, chemical, marine, aerospace, military, entertainment, and recycling industries. Common examples of fluid power are in truck breaks, tractors, elevators, rollercoasters.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

 

What are the types of a fluid power system?

Fluid power refers to hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems that use compressed ‘fluid’ for fluid transfer transmission that generates more power. Hydraulic systems make use of compressed liquid, typically oil or water where pneumatic systems make use of compressed gas, typically natural gas (air) or carbon dioxide. Fluid power is also known as hydraulic power and pneumatic power.

What is a pneumatic system?

A pneumatic system is a collection of interconnected components that makes use of compressed air. Compressed natural gas (air) or carbon dioxide is usually filtered and dried to protect the cylinders, actuators, tools and bladders performing the work. These systems are reliable, requires little maintenance and typically has a lengthy life.

What is a hydraulics system?

A hydraulic system is a collection of interconnected components that makes use of compressed liquid to generate a larger amount of power. This fluid power system allows it to handle a large weight range without the use of gears, pulleys or leavers.

Are pneumatics and hydraulics similar?

Yes, since these systems use compressed ‘fluid’ of some sort, whether it be liquid (hydraulics) or gas (pneumatics). This is also why fluid power is separated in two categories, namely hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems.

What are the components of fluid power?

The following components are found in hydraulic and pneumatic equipment:

  • Hydraulic pump or air compressor for pneumatic systems
  • Hydraulic air cylinders or electrical motor for pneumatic systems
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic valves
  • Filters, regulators and lubricators
  • Relevant manifolds, hose, tube, pipelined, fittings, couplings, etc. to carry the ‘fluid’ in question
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic seals

Accumulators and reservoirs or storage tanks

  • Instruments such as pressure switches, gauges, flow meters, sensors and transducers, which are used to help monitor the performance of a fluid
  • Auto drainers
  • Air dryers
