This four and a half day course will cover how to select and properly size components used in industrial hydraulic circuits. It will not cover mobile applications. Students will learn the correct methods for properly sizing components selected and not relying on “rules of thumb” to optimize the energy use within a system. The course is math intensive as basic math and physics are used to calculate required performance requirements for applications.
Who Should Attend: This course is appropriate for personnel involved with the application and design of hydraulic systems and for product application specialists.
Prerequisites: Fundamental Hydraulics and Troubleshooting or equivalent.
