What is a Hydraulic System?
In simple terms, in a hydraulic system, force is applied at one point and then transmitted to a different point using incompressible fluid (the volume or density of the fluid doesn’t change with pressure), usually oil. The system uses the pump to push fluid through to create fluid power – passing through where the hydraulic energy converts into mechanical energy. A system usually consists of a cylinder, directional control valve, relief valve, pump and reservoir. Here at DLH Online, we supply universal cylinders, single-acting cylinders and double-acting cylinders. We also provide foot pumps, hydraulic hoses, manifolds, power pumps, valves, switches, gauges, attachments, chain cutters, pullers, chargers, batteries and more.
Where are Hydraulic Systems Found?
Hydraulic systems are found in many places in everyday life, not just in niche/industrial sectors. They’re found in pumps, garages, cars, cranes, forklifts, fall arrest safety harnesses, planes, rollercoasters, chairs, elevators and even dishwashers!
The industries that use hydraulics include agriculture, leisure, construction, aerospace, energy, landscaping, automotive, oil, marine, waste management, coal mining, printing, crash testing, architecture, rocket launches and manufacturing.
