Hydraulic welding application

{0 Comments}

A hydraulic system can be used for holding and positioning the parts to be welded during a welding operation. It is a typical example of how fluid power can be used in manufacturing and production operations, to reduce the overall costs and to increase production. This application requires a sequencing system for fast and positive […]

High wire hydraulically driven overhead tram

{0 Comments}

Most overhead trams require haulage or tow cable to travel up and down steep inclines. A 22-passenger, 12 000 pound (around 5000 kg) hydraulically powered and controlled tram is shown in Figure 9.2. It is self-propelled and travels on a stationary cable. Since the tram moves instead of the cables, the operator can easily start, […]

Hydraulic accumulator as shock absorber

{0 Comments}

One of the most important industrial applications of accumulators is in the elimination or reduction of high-pressure pulsations or hydraulic shocks. Hydraulic shock (or water hammer, as it is frequently called) is caused by the sudden stoppage or deceleration of a hydraulic fluid flowing at a relatively higher velocity in the pipelines. This hydraulic shock […]

Hydraulic QUAD-O-DYN Seals

The Quad-O-Dyn®, also manufactured by Minnesota Rubber, is a special form of the Quad-Ring. The Quad-O-Dyn differs from the Quad-Ring in configuration (fig. 7-17), is harder, is subject to greater squeeze, and is made of a different material. The Quad-O-Dyn® seal also works well in O-rings glands. The Quad-O-Dyn® is used in relatively few applications. […]

Hydraulic QUAD-Rings

The Quad-Ring® seal is a special configuration ring packing, manufactured by the Minnesota Rubber. As opposed to an O-ring, a Quad-Ring® seal has a more square cross-sectional shape with rounded corners (fig. 7-16). The Quad-Ring® seal design offers more stability than the O-ring design and practically eliminates the spiraling or twisting that is sometimes encountered […]

Hydraulic O-Rings

An O-ring is doughnut-shaped. O-rings are usually molded from rubber compounds; however, they can be molded or machined from plastic materials. The O-ring is usually fitted into a rectangular groove (usually called a gland) machined into the mechanism to be sealed. An O-ring seal consists of an O-ring mounted in the gland so that the […]

Hydraulic V-Seals

The V-ring is one of the most frequently used dynamic seals in ship service although its identification, installation, and performance are probably most misunderstood. Properly selected and installed, V-rings can provide excellent service life; otherwise, problems associated with friction, rod and seal wear, noise, and leakage can be expected. The V-ring is the part of […]

Hydraulic T-Seals

The T-seal has an elastomeric bidirectional sealing element resembling an inverted letter T. This sealing element is always paired with two special extrusion-resisting backup rings, one on each side of the T. The basic T-seal configuration is shown in figure 7-2, view A. The backup rings are single turn, bias cut, and usually made of […]

Water Cooled Hydraulic Heat Exchanger

Figure 7.26 is an illustration of a common type of water-cooled heat exchanger used in hydraulic systems. This is typically a shell and tube-type heat exchanger. The cooling water is pumped into the heat exchanger and flows around the tube bank. The hydraulic fluid, which is to be cooled, flows through the tubes. While flowing […]

Air Cooled Hydraulic Heat Exchanger

Figure 7.25 shows an air-cooled heat exchanger. The hydraulic fluid to be cooled is pumped through the tubes that are finned. As the fluid flows through the tubes, air is blown over them. This takes away the heat from the tubes. A fan driven by an electric motor is incorporated in the heat exchanger to […]
