Hydraulics: Pumps & Actuators
Hydraulics: Pumps & Actuators is part three of the Hydraulics seven-part training series.
The course teaches students the operation and function of pumps and actuators and their relationship within the hydraulic system.
Course objectives include:
- Describe the basic structure and operation of balanced and unbalanced vane pumps, internal and external gear pumps, and radial and axial piston pumps
- Identify methods of varying the displacement in vane pumps and radial and axial piston pumps
- Describe the basic structure and operation of various types of motors and rotary actuators
- Describe the basic structure and operation of various types of cylinder devices such as rod gland bushings and seals, piston seals, air bleed passages, stroke adjusters, stop tubes, and cushions.
