This trainer familiarizes students with hydraulic technology and its applications. Each lesson requires students to conduct an experiment in hydraulic technology using one or more of the 20+ components including different types of valves, cylinders and measuring instruments. Students will use these components to emulate industrial applications. Students will develop skills in problem solving, data management, hydraulic concepts, and unit conversion.

Students will learn about hydraulic fluid and filtration, how to control and direct hydraulic fluid using pressure control devices, directional valves, and flow control valves.  They will use the components and schematics to construct hydraulics systems commonly found in industry like a hydraulic press, jack or positioner applications. They will study the physical properties of force, work, power, and energy used in these applications.

  • Many see-through components allow for student observation and increased understanding of system functions
  • Built in centrifugal pump with hydraulic reservoir set at 25 PSI maximum
  • Quick connect fittings for easy assembly of experiments
  • Reservoir and hoses pre-filled with hydraulic fluid
