A lot of companies live with unnecessary downtime and ongoing hydraulic problems because their maintenance personnel haven't yet received training in:
If the maintenance personnel at your company haven't been taught how to read hydraulic schematics and don't understand how hydraulics function, there's a good chance hydraulic problems get solved through guesswork, trial, and error. Valve and pump settings are changed, and one component after another is changed out. And that all adds up to unecessary headaches, lost time, and wasted money.
Having your personnel learn to read and understand hydraulic schematics, understand how hydraulics function, know what each hydraulic component does, and learn how hydraulic circuits work, can help them downsize your downtime in three ways:
In addition, understanding how hydraulics and hydraulic circuits function will help your personnel get the best possible performance from your hydraulic equipment.
Imagine for a moment that have a piece of equipment where all three cylinders completely extend when there's no load, but when the cylinders are put under load...
Faced with this situation, people who participate in our Basic Hydraulic training can:
If your personnel can do these 7 things, then your company probably won't get much benefit from our Basic Hydraulic Training.
But if you're like most companies, our training (which is built around the question "what do you need to know in order to troubleshoot better, prevent hydraulic problems, and get the best possible performance from hydraulic equipment?") is an investment that will pay for itself by reducing downtime, extending component life, and getting your hydraulic equipment to operate more effectively.
If you'd like to review this problem with your personnel, or just see why this circuit lifts a 20 ton load but not 2 ton and 10 ton loads, you'll find a downloadable schematic of this "Stalling Cylinders Situation" and a video giving the 7 solutions to the problem at www.basicHydraulicTraining.com/StallingCylinders .
