Fluid systems involve the use of fluids to transmit and multiply force. The basic hydraulic unit for this purpose makes use of various hydraulic components such as reservoirs, actuators, filters and accumulators. It also involves the use of diverse types of controls including pressure control and valves, flow control, directional control and solenoids.

In this course, the student will be introduced to the theory, concepts, interactions and modes of operation of various hydraulic components.

Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained

This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • The operation of devices used to measure and regulate the pressure of fluids and to measure the temperature of fluids
  • The functions of reservoirs, strainers, filters, and accumulators, and their uses in fluid power systems
  • The types and operation of actuators used to transform the energy generated by hydraulic systems into mechanical force and motion
  • The characteristics and compressibility of gases and the most commonly used gases in pneumatic systems
  • The safety precautions and the potential hazards of compressed gases
  • The types of system diagrams encountered in fluid power systems
