28,214 Hydraulic Equipment Users Can't Be Wrong...
How To Get A LIFETIME
Dear Hydraulics User,
You know when it comes to solving and preventing problems with your hydraulic equipment, knowledge is the key.
It's just that it can cost you a lot of time, effort and money to get it.
In fact, a really detailed understanding of hydraulic component operation and circuitry is something that few people master.
But I've come across an excellent book that effectively tackles the complex subject of hydraulics. It explains the underlying operating principles and function of components and systems - for all levels of understanding: design, maintenance and troubleshooting.
It's called Industrial Hydraulic Control by Peter Rohner.
First of all, this is not just another book covering basic hydraulic theory and concepts. No way. Peter Rohner is a University Professor with over 30 years of teaching experience. He is one of the most successful fluid power lecturers and authors you'll ever meet. A true Master of the subject.
Secondly, even though the book's title is 'Industrial Hydraulic Control', the information it contains is just as relevant to mobile hydraulics. These days, topics such as slip-in cartridge valves (logic elements), variable pump controls, proportional and servo control and PLCs are just as relevant to mobile hydraulics as they are to industrial hydraulics.
Now in its 4th Edition and with 28,214 copies in print Industrial Hydraulic Control is possibly THE most popular hydraulics manual on the planet. It's definitely the most comprehensive guide to understanding the complexities of hydraulic circuits and components you could ever hope to get your hands on. Here's a sample of what's been said about it:
"Industrial Hydraulic Control was the recommended text I purchased
when I started my Mechancial Engineering course... it is one of the best"
Gary K. Nathan
There is something in Industrial Hydraulic Control for everyone - student, engineer and technician, from novice to pro. Here's what's included in each chapter, and the powerful knowledge you'll gain:
Did YOU know that up to 25% of cylinder rod-seal failures are caused by bent rods? Shows you step-by-step, how to check cylinder rod-bending loads. PLUS - cylinder types, their construction and seal arrangements are all covered in detail. The chapter concludes with a discussion of cylinder regenerative circuits.
When you have pump problems this is the place to start. Explanation of the construction and operating principles of different pump designs is expanded to include the seven factors you must consider when selecting a pump. AND you get the all the application formulas you need - with worked examples included.
Variable Pump Controls
Pump controls are complicated, right? WRONG! Pressure-compensated, constant power (torque-limiting) and load-sensing control will no longer be a mystery to you once you've read this chapter. Pump control functions are illustrated with colour sectional views along with their corresponding graphical symbols.
When you have motor trouble turn to page 84. Describes how torque is developed in a hydraulic motor and explains the construction and operating principles of different motor designs. The process of selecting and sizing a hydraulic motor is covered in detail, with all necessary formulas included. PLUS - the three most common motor control-circuits are illustrated and explained.
Directional Control Valves
Directional valves are simple, right? Nope. This chapter explains the finer points of directional valve construction, operation and application: spool overlap and ring gap, valve mechanisms, switching positions, pathways, center and transition condition and actuation methods - just to name a few.
Hose and Fittings
Do you know a seven degree twist in a high-pressure hydraulic hose can reduce its service life by 90%? Covers flow velocity and sizing, selection and rating of conductors (pipes, tubes and hoses), including metric tube and metric compression fittings.
Pressure Control Valves
What they do AND how they do it. Covers the application and operation of direct-acting and pilot-operated relief valves - with and without remote pressure control, accumulator-unloading circuits, single and two-stage sequence valves, counterbalance valves and direct-acting and pilot-operated pressure reducing valves. Like all other chapters throughout the book, functional descriptions are illustrated with colour sectional views and their corresponding graphical symbols.
Cartridge Valves and Logic Elements
Do you know that logic elements can be configured for flow in two directions - but only one ensures leak-free operation? This chapter will bring you up to speed on screw-in and slip-in cartridge valves. From the basics, right through to the configuration and control of logic elements for direction, flow and pressure control applications.
Flow Control Valves
How to navigate the flow control maze. Explains the laws that govern flow rate through an orifice and discusses the use of needle valves as flow controls and their limitations. The operation of pressure and temperature compensated flow controls and their application in meter-in, meter-out, bleed-off and deceleration circuits are explained. PLUS - how a three-way flow control minimizes energy loss in a circuit. The chapter concludes with a practical discussion of flow-divider and priority flow-divider valves.
The quickest way to gain a comprehensive understanding of the most important component of every system. Absolute and kinematic viscosity is explained and fluid properties such as viscosity index, pour point, oxidisation stability, lubricity, demulsibility, foaming resistance and air release are discussed. Special purpose oils are considered, including a comparison table for petroleum and alternative fluids. The chapter concludes with discussion of bulk modulus and decompression control.
What you MUST check to ensure you don't overlook the obvious. Covers six common hydraulic problems and their root causes.
If you want to control contamination - then you must understand filtration. Explains absolute, nominal and Beta ratings of filters and classification of fluid cleanliness. The difference between surface and depth filters is illustrated. PLUS - the chapter concludes with coverage of clogging indicators and pressure switches.
What you MUST KNOW about hydro-pneumatic accumulators. Application guidelines and formulas for working volume and gas pre-charge. The chapter concludes with illustration and explanation of common accumulator circuits.
Proportional and Servo Control
If you want to know where hydraulics is heading, then this is essential information. Proportional and servo valve construction and operation, valve characteristic definitions and control electronics are all covered in detail.
Why all hydraulic tanks are NOT made equal. Explains the various functions of the reservoir, and covers reservoir sizing, design and construction. PLUS - the quickest and easiest way to calculate heat dissipation from the reservoir.
Pneumatic Logic Control
Even if this method of control is all new to you, you will make the transition from novice to pro in just one reading. Benefits, application and operating principles of pneumatic logic control are illustrated and explained.
Programmable Logic Controllers
You don't need to be an electrician to understand PLC-controlled equipment. This chapter will give you the knowledge you need. Operation fundamentals, logic functions, programming and integration considerations are explained in detail, with worked examples.
Here, you'll nail the fundamental principles of hydraulics as they relate to fluid flow, velocity and pressure, and transmission of force and power. Concepts discussed are cleverly illustrated and relevant formulas introduced.
Hydraulic Symbols and Formulas
And if all this isn't enough, the Appendix includes useful references such as: units of measurement and their symbols, commonly used hydraulics formulas, hydraulic symbols and conversion tables.
