Mech Maint Hydraulics 1

Students will learn the basic physical principles that apply to industrial hydraulic systems, including calculations for pressure, force, and flow rate. They will be able to identify common schematic symbols and draw/interpret basic schematic diagrams. The purpose and function of hydraulic pumps, actuators, pressure control valves, flow control valves and directional control valves is covered in depth. Knowledge and understanding of these principles and components is demonstrated by using them to build common circuits on hydraulic training units.
