Understanding the basic principles of hydraulics and how everything comes together in order to make machines be able to move heavy loads. We can start by understanding Pascal's law and pressure. See video below.
This is how you can adjust your pressure compensated control for your hydraulic pump. You can adjust it to a higher or lower pressure settings depending on your system requirements to have it working properly.
What is a pressure relief valve and why do you really need it in the hydraulic system? Check out our short video and understand why a pressure relief valve is important in the system often at all times.
What are the main differences between a direct acting hydraulic relief valve vs. a pilot operated hydraulic relief valve? Why would you want to use one valve over the other one? Check out this video and understand some of the differences.
This is a High Low hydraulic circuit, some people may also call it hi-l0 circiuit in which you need a high flow at low pressure and then the requirements changes to a high pressure with low flow to be delivered for the same system.
This is a quick reference chart to replace an Oilgear hydraulic pump series PVM for an alternative hydraulic pump from Technical Union. We can use similar charts to replace almost any hydraulic pump that anybody would have.
