All hydraulic system is about the same. There are some basic components needed for the hydraulic system. Basic hydraulic pneumatic system components Types of hydraulic pump Hydraulic cylinder speed calculator Hydraulic directional control valve types Basic pneumatic system
Components of hydraulic system
Hydraulic oil: Hydraulic oil is non-compressible medium which transferred power in a hydraulic machinery.
Reservoir: Reservoir contains the fluids of hydraulic system. It helps the fluid to circulate and turns it to be cool. Fluids moves from the reservoir to the piping system and after system operation it comes back to the reservoir again.

Pump: Pump transfer fluid with forces from reservoir through the directional control valves to the actuators.
Filter: Filters helps to remove foreign particles from the suction line. Contamination is the main problem to damage the hydraulic system in a short time.
Motor or Prime mover: Motor or prime mover converts electrical energy to mechanical energy.Motor or prime mover drives the hydraulic pump to transfer fluid to the hydraulic system.
Valves: Valves are used to control fluid direction of the hydraulic system actuators.There are several types of control valves available in the hydraulic system. As an example Flow control valves, pressure control valves,Directional control valves.
Connectors: Hydraulic hose pipes, tubes,Ms pipes, flexible hose are used as connectors to transfer fluids from hydraulic units to actuators.
Pressure gauge: Pressure gauge indicates the pressure of hydraulic system. Different ranges of pressure gauge are available for hydraulic system. It can measure up to 10,000 Psi. It is installed around the pump pressure port and anywhere of the hydraulic system where pressure need to determine.
Fluid level indicator: Fluid level indicator measure the level of hydraulic fluid of the reservoir that’s why operator can understand when need to refill the reservoir. Manufacturer
Temperature meter: Temperature meter is the important components of the hydraulic system. When system turns to overheated then temperature meter shut down the hydraulic system team automatically. This is how temperature meters saves the hydraulic system components from damages and failures from overheated.
Heat exchanger: Heat exchanger transfer heat from one medium to another medium. A couple of tubes used in heat exchanger to exchange heat.
