INTRODUCTION TO HYDRAULICS
A hydraulic cylinder is simple piece of equipment, but it is capable of generating huge forces to lift or move heavy loads. Output force (capacity) is determined by only two elements:
1. Working pressure (i.e. PSI)
2. Effective area
Additionally, hydraulic tools, like the ones in this website, all work on the principle of the simple cylinder. Whether it is a small “ram”, nut splitter, flange spreader, tensioner or hydraulic torque wrench they all use this same principle.
Through this training, we will introduce you to these concepts and provide you with a practical, hands-on demonstration of these systems.
