Hydraulic Oil

A Definition of Hydraulics

Hydraulics, an area of engineering involving moving liquids including water and oil. There are two fundamental categories in hydraulics:

Hydrostatics – the basic principle being the relative incompressibility of liquids. This concerns liquids at rest and is relevant to buoyancy and flotation, pressure on barriers, submerged equipment and hydraulic presses.

Hydrodynamics – relating to liquids in motion and to do with the turbulence and friction created by flowing liquids in pipes, for example, the flow of water through nozzles and the application of hydraulic pressure in machinery.

Facts about hydraulics

Energy from a hydraulic system leaves as either work i.e the power used in the specific operation of the system or as loss in the form of heat.

Four fundamental mechanisms make up hydraulic systems: The reservoir stores oil, The pump pushes oil through the system, The valve controls the pressure and flow of the oil, The cylinder changes the fluid movement into power

The oil in a hydraulic system will only work if it is compressed to an intense point.

A hydraulic system converts existing energy into another form. No new energy is produced.

A low flow system and a high flow system can be produced from the same amount of energy output even when the energy is the same.

Two main types of hydraulic systems exist: An open centre system which has a varied pressure but the flow remains constant. A closed centre system which has a varied flow but the pressure remains constant.

The flow must remain unrestricted otherwise the pressure in the hydraulics will drop.

The three main types of hydraulic energy are: Kinetic energy – created by moving liquids, Heat energy – the energy that is the resistance to the flow, Potential energy – the pressure energy
