Title: Fundamentals of Hydraulic Systems 201

Description: Topic 1: Introduction to Hydraulic Seal Design, Selection, and Application.

Presented by: Ryan Webster

Hydraulic systems require seals to retain pressure, which results in the transference of fluid power energy into motion. To ensure longevity and efficiency of the hydraulic system, having the right seal for the application is critical. This presentation will discuss the basics of seal design and explain its impact on the selection of sealing applications. It will also review seal profile, materials, and the dimensions of the groove(s) where the seal will be installed along with important factors that must be understood to choose the best sealing system. It will conclude with recommendations for optimizing conditions in the hydraulic system to maximize seal life and performance.

Topic 2: Contamination Control and Clean Hydraulic House Assembly Procedures.

Presented by: Bruce Riley

Part 1,
We have found a general lack of understanding with the majority of hydraulic hose and tube fabricators for the need to produce and supply cleaned and capped hose and tube assemblies. We start the presentation by educating our audience on the cost of contamination to the end customer, fabricator and equipment manufacturer. We show the cause and effect that contamination has on a hydraulic system so the audience fully understands the need for a clean hydraulic system and the importance of cleaning and capping hose and tube assemblies.

Part 2,
Each step of the hose fabrication process is discussed in detail. We show where the contamination is created, how to minimize or avoid the creation of the contamination and how to efficiently remove the created contamination. We explain the importance of capping the cleaned assemblies and then present independent test reports to show the results of different cleaning methods.

Part 3,
Normally for Ultra Clean customers we explain the Ultra Clean product line and ROI. We will leave Part 3 out of the power point because we don’t want the presentation to become an infomercial for Ultra Clean.

Topic 4: "Electro Hydrostatic Actuation - Highly efficient implement solution with energy recovery"

Presented by: Dale Vanderlaan, Technical Staff Member and Research Engineer
Motion Technology Center
Motion Systems Group
Parker Hannifin


Off-road industrial machines require multi-function implement operation with dynamic duty cycles. In many cases, machine implements demand short bursts of full engine power and brake dynamic loads requiring 50% or more of energy consumed. Many next generation machines reduce energy loss and improve productivity by incorporating hybrid electric approaches with energy storage. An efficient implement solution enabling the hybrid electric approach is essential to achieve maximum improvement potential. This presentation will introduce Electro Hydrostatic Actuation outlining basic operation, highlighting unique characteristics and comparing benefits with alternative approaches. A summary of test results from application experience will be included.

• Introduction to Electro Hydrostatic Actitation
• System Requirements & Design Considerations
• Energy Savings & Productivity Benefits
• Typical Duty Cycle Performance
• Summary & Conclusions
