Who will benefit? No prerequisites required. Any and all newcomers will benefit from this course. Fluid power industry professionals, maintenance technicians, machine operators, and sales representatives will be empowered with foundational knowledge. Even seasoned personnel will likely experience increased understanding of their foundational competencies. What is it about? This course correlates core fluid power principles with practical mobile machine operation and maintenance duties. Procedures to ensure the safety of personnel and to prevent damage to machinery will be discussed. Introductory physics and fluid mechanics will be explained. Fluid power symbols appearing in schematics will be correlated to real-world componentry. The location of components in a hydraulic system will be identified and proper adjustment procedures demonstrated. Hands-on lab exercises will reinforce fluid power concepts, component locations, proper connections, and the effects of adjustments on system operations. Elimination of leaks by proper fitting selection and installation will be discussed. The significance of fluid cleanliness to system longevity and techniques to minimize ingression of contaminants will be presented.
