An Interactive 5-Day Training Course

Hydraulic Systems

Principles, Operation and Maintenance

Hydraulic Systems

Course Overview

This GLOMACS Hydraulic Systems: Principles, Operation and Maintenance training seminar provides participants with a greater working expertise and understanding of hydraulic power systems.  The seminar delivers an interactive training experience designed to help participants understand the various components found in a typical hydraulic system and how these components function and interact with each other.

Participants will also learn about the major groups of hydraulic components, including the function and principles of operation of direct-and pilot-operated relief valves, pressure-reducing valves, directional-control valves, fixed- and variable-displacement pumps, and accumulators. Understanding of the basic hydraulic circuits most often used in industrial hydraulic systems is covered. Hydraulic principles of mechanical maintenance, types of hydraulic fluids and their characteristics will be also covered.

This GLOMACS training course is designed for participants to learn and recognize faults and damage to major components in hydraulic systems during inspection and to adjust control valves and test hydraulic circuits for correct and safe operation.

This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:

  • Principles of Hydraulic Power Systems
  • Problems Related to Hydraulic Fluids
  • Variable and Fixed Displacement Hydraulic Pumps
  • Principles of Operation of Control Valves
  • Operation of Basic Hydraulic Circuits used industrial hydraulic systems
  • Maintenance, Inspection and testing of Hydraulic System

Training Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Identify the hydraulic system components
  • Recognize the impact hydraulic fluids have on the components
  • Understand and interpret hydraulic symbols
  • Understand the correct operation procedures of hydraulic systems
  • Explain maintenance and troubleshooting practices that apply to the entire hydraulic system

Training Methodology

This GLOMACS Hydraulic Systems training seminar will be delivered along workshop principles with presentation, video clips, multimedia illustrations and interactive worked examples. Group discussions will be followed to enhance the skills of the participants.  Amount of time will be devoted to teaching the participants how to understand and interpret hydraulic symbols and hydraulic circuits, using handouts of ISO standard symbol diagrams.
