Hydraulics Stage Two – Industrial

June 10 at 9:00 AM

Member price – £1,400 + VAT
Non-member price – £1,495 + VAT

Duration – 4 Days


Designed for Plant Managers, Engineers, Technicians & Craftsmen involved in the maintenance & management of fluid power systems, also Technical Representatives.

The programme will focus on installation, commissioning, testing & fault diagnosis & will involve a high degree of ‘hands-on’ practical training to support the further development of the vital skills required to manage & maintain today’s complex systems.

For engineers working offshore we can allocate specific course time to the Stage 2 Industrial programme to cover specific offshore applications and carry out relevant practical tasks.

Course Aims

  • To take your overall knowledge and skills to the next level to enable you to better manage and maintain complex hydraulic systems with a range of controls
  • Ensure that you know the causes of failure in hydraulic systems and apply the necessary preventative measures and know the procedures to follow to carry-out effective fault diagnosis


Course Objectives

Knowledge Based
On completion of this course candidates will know:

  • The function of pilot controlled DCV’s, logic cartridge valves, proportional valves and load holding valves
  • Operation and performance of pumps and pump controls in common use
  • The recommended procedures to follow for installation and commissioning
  • The maintenance techniques in current use and their effectiveness
  • The causes of failure in a hydraulic system and the fault-finding procedures to follow
  • Risk assessment and the health and safety requirements for hydraulic systems


Skills Based
During the practical section of this course candidates will engage in and apply the following skills:

  • Build hydraulic circuits by interpreting a hydraulic diagram
  • Set pressure control valves for relief, sequence, reducing and counterbalance functions
  • Connect the electrical interface to the hydraulic controls using manual switches and pressure switches
  • Apply hydraulic and electrical sequencing techniques
  • Apply load holding techniques
  • Set up an amplifier to operate a proportional DCV
  • Compare pump pressure compensator and load sensing controllers
  • Apply specific fault-finding techniques to hydraulic circuits
