Hydraulic Equipment Manufacturers and Companies

Hydraulic Equipment

In hydraulic systems, force is applied to a fluid, typically oil, in order to transfer energy from one area to another. The transferred energy is used to drive a variety of high-powered, heavy duty equipment such as hydraulic cylinders, hydraulic motors and hydraulic presses. These products are constructed from materials that perform well under pressure such as stainless steel, brass, cast iron and more. Hydraulic systems require many different components and some of the more common hydraulic supplies include tubes, valves, filters and actuators. Due to their wide-ranging design, hydraulic equipment & supplies can be used in several diverse industries including: construction, for equipment such as cranes, bulldozers and lifts; automotive and aviation, for braking systems and power transmission applications; and industrial manufacturing, for automated process and assembly equipment.

Hydraulic Cylinders Manufacturers

Stainless Steel Hydraulic Cylinders – PHD, Inc.Hydraulic cylinders, which are also sometimes called linear hydraulic motors, are mechanical actuators that convert the hydraulic energy of pressurized fluids into mechanical energy that can manipulate the movements of machine attachments and linkages. Both versatile and varied, hydraulic cylinders have applications in industries such as agriculture, aviation, aerospace, automotive, robotics, waste removal military, machining, manufacturing, oil and gas, and construction. In all of these industries, as they increase output force, they increase efficiency and mechanical capabilities tenfold. Just a few of the machines they benefit are: back hoes, cranes, brakes, dozers, forklifts, elevators, jacks, snowplows, dump trucks, ships, space crafts, planes, power steering, planes, excavators, lifts, robotic arms, and material handling equipment.

All cylinders consist of a barrel, a base or cap, a head, a piston, a piston rod, seals, and seal glands. The barrel is the cylinder body; made mostly from a seamless tube, it exists to hold pressure. The base, also called the cap, exists both to enclose the pressure barrel at one end and perform mounting duties. It is secured to the barrel via threading, welding, tie rods, or bolts. Also, except in the case of a welded cap, an O-ring, or static seal, is placed in between the barrel and the cap. The cylinder head encloses the barrel from the other end. Also featuring a static seal, it connects to the barrel through a tie rod, bolts, or threading.

Hydraulic Lifts Manufacturers

Double Arm Scissor Lift – Autoquip CorporationHydraulic lift systems are tools powered by hydraulics, or liquid mechanics, to raise and lower, support and lift and move objects that could not be transported using manual labor alone. There are many types of hydraulic lifts available, the most common being scissor lifts, aerial lifts, platform lifts, pallet lifts and vehicle lifts.

Scissor lifts may be the most common type of hydraulic lift. They perform lifting action by extending at their crossed, accordion-esque base. Aerial lifts, which are technically a kind of scissor lift, can typically rise ten to fifty feet in the air.

They are the perfect lifts for high shelving access. Platform lifts, also called elevated work platforms, are table-like and used for large-scale lifting tasks. Pallet lifts, which are also known as transporters, raise pallets from a ground to a raised position, for shipping and material handling applications. Finally, vehicle lifts are used just as their name implies; they lift vehicles in inspection bays and for automotive repair.

Hydraulic Motors Manufacturers

Hydraulic Drive Motors – Von Ruden Manufacturing, Inc.Hydraulic motors are products that turn hydraulic pressure into a usable rotational energy. These devices are designed with a reservoir, rotating machinery and a pump. Hydraulic motors are able to generate a significant amount of power compared to other types of motors that are the same size. Hydraulic motors are typically used in construction equipment, recycling processes, wheel motors for military applications, self-driven cranes, excavators, agriculture, conveyor systems, dredging and many other industrial purposes.

The study of hydraulics says that, because most fluids are incompressible, if a fluid is placed inside a closed system and then force is applied to it, at some point, this force will move through it to another point.

Hydraulic motors put this concept into practice in order to generate a force that can be used to power numerous applications. Technically, hydraulic motors are mechanical actuators; they convert pressure into rotational energy and torque. They are also the rotary counterpart of hydraulic cylinders. Usually, they consist of rotating machinery, a pump, and a reservoir.

Broadly, hydraulic motors serve the construction, automotive, agriculture, forestry, manufacturing, military, waste management and recycling, aerospace, marine, and oil and energy industries.

Hydraulic Pumps Manufacturers

Hydraulic Gear Pumps – Muncie Power Products, Inc.Hydraulic pumps are an important component of most hydraulic systems, which convert the energy generated by pressurized fluids into usable mechanical energy. The hydraulic systems they support exist in a range of industries, among them agriculture, automotive manufacturing, defense contracting, excavation, and industrial manufacturing.

They operate under the principle of Pascal’s Law, which states the increase in pressure at one point of an enclosed liquid in equilibrium is equally transferred to all other points of said liquid.

All hydraulic pumps are composed in the same basic way. First, they have a reservoir, which is the section of the pump that houses stationary fluid. Next, they use hoses or tubes to transfer this fluid into the cylinder, which is the main body of the hydraulic system. Inside the cylinder, or cylinders, are found two valves and one or more pistons or gear systems. One valve is located at each end; they are called the intake check, or inlet, valve and the discharge check, or outlet, valve, respectively.

When pressurized fluid is pumped into the cylinder through the inlet, it picks up more force, which it carries over into the hydraulic system when it is released through the outlet. The role of the piston is to move or compress fluid. When the piston is withdrawn, the check valve is opened, creating a vacuum that pulls in hydraulic fluid from the reservoir. When it is set back in its original position, the check valve closes and fluid pressure builds. The piston forces the valves open and closed repeatedly at variable speeds, increasing pressure in the cylinder until it builds up enough to force the fluid through the discharge valve. In this way, the pump delivers sufficient force and energy to the attached equipment or machinery to move the target load.

Hydraulic Valves Manufacturers

Electric Hydraulic Valves – EnerpacHydraulic systems have existed in some way or another since the sixth century BCE, when the Mesopotamians and Egyptians used water power for irrigation. Use of hydraulics was also seen in the Hellenistic age and in ancient Persia, China, Sri Lanka, and Rome.

The modern age of hydraulics began in the early 1600s, with the innovations of scientists like Benedetto Castelli and Blaise Pascal. It is, in fact, Pascal’s law, upon which the principles of hydraulics are founded. His law states, in essence, that when pressure placed on a confined liquid increases at any point, equal and proportional increases will appear at all other points in the container.

Using this principle, engineers and scientists have successfully designed systems that generate, control, and transfer power via pressurized fluids. Hydraulic valves are an integral part of these systems, allowing for the safe and proper control of the flow and pressure of fluid within them.
