Hydraulic systems have become an important part of many pieces of industrial equipment. Hydraulic parts allow the multiplication of force by using a liquid that cannot be compressed. A single system can contain dozens of different components that help to move, control and clean the hydraulic fluid. Most systems contain a few basic parts.
Nearly all larger industrial hydraulic systems contain a motor or an engine. The motor is the part of the system that provides power to the pump in order to move the fluid through all surrounding components. Many pieces of equipment use a standard electrical motor in order to drive the pump and other features. Larger industrial machines frequently use an engine powered by gasoline or another type of fuel in order to generate greater levels of pressure. Manually controlled hydraulic items like a jack do not include a motor.
The pump is the part of a hydraulic system that actually moves the hydraulic fluid. The fluid is normally an oil-based…
