Hydraulics Maintenance Training

Courses Objective
Most of the defects in plants and machinery that lead to a large percentage of purchase of spares and tools are largely due to improper operation and maintenance. This course teaches your staff how to avoid this situation and how to reduce operation cost by increasing the uptime of hydraulic equipment.

TARGET GROUP
Everyone who has to deal with hydraulics systems in the work place.

COURSE OUTLINE
Hydraulic equipment maintenance – why its so important
Maintaining fluid cleanliness
Maintaining fluid temperature and viscosity within optimum limits
Maintaining hydraulic system settings to manufactures’ specification
Scheduling component change-outs before they fail
Following the correct commissioning procedures
Conducting failure analysis
The true cost of hydraulic fluid leaks.
Fluid contamination and dealing with water in hydraulic fluid
Troubleshooting basics and how to avoid costly mistakes
Symptoms of common hydraulic problems and their causes
Locating internal leakage
Fundamentals of hydraulic component and cylinder repair

OUTCOMES
The Participant:
Can describe how fluid contamination destroys hydraulic components
