Hydraulic Presses Machines Circuit

Presses are used for molding, shaping, shearing, and many other operations. Some of the older manufacturing plants have lines of presses connected in parallel as shown in Fig. 7.9. To give perspective to the problem, let us assume that the … Continue reading

Hydraulic Closed-Center Circuit with Load Sensing

Load sensing is achieved with a special compensator mounted on a variable displacement pressure-compensated pump. The reader should envision this special compensator mounted on the pump shown in Fig. 4.15. For this analysis, we assume that the special compensator is … Continue reading

Hydraulic Closed-Center Circuit

The closed-center circuit shown in Fig. 4.18 has a variable displacement pump like that shown in Fig. 4.15. The compensator valve spring is a 2500 psi spring. The pump builds 2500 psi before the compensator valve moves to open a … Continue reading

Hydraulic Load Sensing Efficiency Improvement

Load sensing was developed to improve the efficiency of a circuit. It requires a variable displacement pump; thus, it is appropriate to discuss it here. An example will illustrate the advantage provided by load sensing. An application requires a maximum … Continue reading

Hydraulic Pressure Control Applications

1. A backhoe operator controls the speed of the cylinder, which extends the bucket by cracking open the DCV controlling flow of the cylinder. Describe the difference in the “feel” of the controls using the two different relief valves (a) … Continue reading

Hydraulic Brake Valve Application

A brake valve performs the same function as a counterbalance valve, but it is designed to overcome a key disadvantage. An example will illustrate this point. Suppose a direct-operated counterbalance valve is used in a motor circuit. There are times … Continue reading

Hydraulic Counterbalance Valve Application

The counterbalance valve, also called a holding valve, is used to prevent a weight from falling uncontrollably. As an example, consider a press with a two-ton platen (Fig. 3.27). When the directional control is shifted, the platen will fall unless … Continue reading

Pressure Reducing Valve

A pressure-reducing valve does not allow pressure downstream of the valve to exceed the set point. Suppose the workpiece must be clamped with two clamps. The second clamp is placed at a point where too much clamping force will damage … Continue reading

Hydraulic Sequence Valve Operation

The sequence valve is used to ensure that a certain pressure level is achieved in one branch of the circuit before a second branch is activated. Consider a machining operation where the workpiece must be clamped with a certain force … Continue reading

Hydraulic Pilot Operated Relief Valve

A pilot-operated relief valve has the same function as a direct-acting relief valve; however, it has a different pressure vs. flow curve. The performance curves for the two types of relief valve are given in Fig. 3.7. The pilot-operated valve … Continue reading
