Hydraulics

The hydraulic course focuses on the practical aspects of assembling and testing a range of hydraulic circuits. Candidates will also be required to safely isolate the hydraulic system if a component is to be removed.

The function of hydraulic control valves and actuators will be demonstrated and incorporated into a hydraulic circuit for testing. Candidates will then be expected to complete a range of fault-finding tasks.

Candidates will also be given the supporting knowledge necessary to be able to identify symbols and read a schematic drawing.
Continuous reference will be made to manufacturers source material for the purposes of correctly identifying hydraulic components. The manufacturers guidance will also be used to set a adjust a hydraulic component correctly.
