How to Solve Hydraulic System Overheating Problems

Based on polls I’ve conducted with my Hydraulics Pro Club members over the years, overheating ranks number two in the list of most common problems with …

Efficient Hydraulic Systems

I think I may have a surprise for you. We will look at a system and try three different hydraulic systems and see which is best from an energy perspective. The …

Simulating a Piezoelectric-Actuated Hydraulic Pump Design

Hydraulic pumps are often the focus of automotive engineers attempting to reduce energy losses. For example, power steering systems have progressed from purely …

Take Your Hydraulic Systems Off Life Support

Contamination in hydraulic fluid is responsible for more than 80% of hydraulic system issues. The most cost-effective method of increasing the lifetime of …

New Test Method Raises Performance Standard for Rod Wipers in Hydraulic Systems

Dirt ingression is a major cause of hydraulic system inefficiency, degradation, and failure. Although superior filtration systems exist and are used to limit …

Fluid Power’s Role in Our Nation’s Energy-Efficient Future

Part 6: Detecting and Correcting Inefficiencies in Hydraulic Systems By Eric Lanke, CEO, NFPA This is the sixth in a series of articles describing NFPA’s …

Don’t Take a Guess! Accelerate Prototyping and Validation of Hydraulic Systems Using Numerical Simulation

Power on, fingers crossed, and hope for the best… The practices of guessing and “we will see how it works” have no place in modern design. Competition …
