Hydraulics has become an integral part of modern drive and control techniques and is extremely suitable for regulating linear and rotating movement, both for large forces and precision movement with speed.
Hydraulics has become an integral part of modern drive and control techniques and is extremely suitable for regulating linear and rotating movement, both for large forces and precision movement with speed. Information presented in this book is oriented to case histories and examples drawn from everyday practice. Related basic theory is also provided.
Because of this approach, the book is ideally suited for engineers and technicians involved in hydraulics. In addition, a variety of examples related to applications, physical principles of operation, and complete hydraulic systems are described.
The book is arranged in a convenient way and finding information is easy. All hydraulic equipment and systems are arranged clearly and systematically. In addition, instructional considerations were taken into account so that personal study is made easier.
The emphasis of the book is on components and their application; pictorial and graphic representations are clear and relevant. Function, effects, and fundamentals of hydraulics are clearly demonstrated. This book should be regarded as an information source, as well as a reference and guide.
Topics covered in the book include cylinders, pumps and hydraulic motors, gear pumps and motors, radial piston pumps, axial piston pumps, vane pumps, directional control valves, pressure regulator valves, flow control valves, check valves, valve interlinking, and hydropneumatic accumulators. Also presented are oil tanks, hydraulic fluids, filter, heaters, coolers, lines, connections, fittings, assemblies of equipment and installations, basic circuits, power loss in throttling controls, commissioning, installation, and instruments.
