Major components of Hydraulic machines are

  • Hydraulic Reservoir: The fluid present in the hydraulic system is of utmost importance. The size of the reservoir containing the hydraulic system depends upon the system and the application used. Aeration can cause the problem so a reservoir is designed in a way that it can remove the trapped air efficiently. The reservoir cools down the pressurized hydraulic fluid.
  • Actuator: The actuator takes the pressure energy and transforms it into mechanical force and motion.
  • Filters: The major problem in a hydraulic system is contamination. There are various particles like rust, water, and other foreign particles that can contaminate and damage the hydraulic system. So, to remove the unnecessary contamination, filters are used. In this way, it is easy to purify the fluid effectively.
  • Hydraulic Pump: As the pump transmits the mechanical energy of fluid into hydraulic energy it is also considered as the heart of the hydraulic system in hydraulic industries.
  • Flow control valve: The fluid flow rate is responsible for the speed of the actuator (motion of the output) and is to be controlled in a hydraulic system. This operation can be performed by using a flow control valve.
  • Accumulator: Accumulators work as an electrical storage battery in a hydraulic system. It stores hydraulic fluid under pressure to utilize it in the future.
  • Hydraulic Hoses: Various components of Hydraulic hoses like pumps, motors, cylinders, etc. are connected with the help of hydraulic hoses and it allows the transfer of fluid between them.
  • Hydraulic Seals: Hydraulic seals are mostly made up of non-metals like PTFE, rubber, and polyurethane (AU). It is used to prevent any leakage of fluid.
