Principles Of Hydraulic

‘’Operated moved, or effected by means of water,’’ according to Webster, means that hydraulics is an ancient as water itself. By strict definition, hydraulic has existed ever since the first stream of water eroded the first section of earth. A more modern definition of hydraulic was first realized in the 17th century when it was discovered that a fluid under pressure could be used to transmit power. Hydrostatics, a contemporary definition of the principle of hydraulics, is a very simple term based on a discovery by the Blaise Pascal (1623-1662). He discovered that if fluid in a closed Container receives a force over any area of that container receives a force over any area of that container , the pressure is them Transmitted throughout the system undiminished and equal in all directions. From this simple system (for distribution of power and changes in its direction) an interesting technology has evolved, which is most versatile means of power transmission known today.

Hydraulics is probably the most unique method to transmit energy to do work. It is more compact than the line of sight methods likewise, hydraulics is considerably more precise in controlling energy, and has a broader adjustability range than either electrical or mechanical means. It is the purpose of this chapter to study the laws of physics of governing fluids.

Basic of Hydraulic Press

Hydraulic Press is the machine which used to generate the compressive force with the help of hydraulic cylinder . Mr.Josepn Bramah of England along with William George Armstrong has Invented the Hydraulic press and was issued a patent in 1795. The hydraulic press is still known as Bramah Press After its Investor

These Hydraulic Presses got Popular Because of large amount of Force can be generated through tubes , Hoses, Pump with the Help of Hydraulic Oil. Whose Compressibility is Very less as Compared to air and Water Medium

How Hydraulic Press Works

The Hydraulic Press works on the concept of Pascal’s law which states that when there is an increase in pressure at any Point in a Confined fluid, there is an equal Increase at every another Point In the container

The Hydraulic Press is Consist of Structure , Cylinder , Hydraulic System & Control Pannel The Hydraulic Press Is Mostly used for Industrial Purpose Where large no of force is Required to do The Desired task.

There are various Application where Hydraulic Press is used Such as –

  • Rubber Processing
  • Metal Forming
  • Cutting and Bending
  • Wood Processing
  • Power Metalurgy
  • Recycle Industry
  • Paper Industry

Benefits Of Hydraulic Press

Hydraulic Presses are more Beneficial than the mechanical Presses Due the Following Resons

  • Hydraulic Press can Compress any material to a full Extent
  • Load can be adjusted at any Point of Stroke
  • Less Noise
  • Ability to Generate large Force in a Cylinder

Construction Of Hydraulic Press

        The Structure   of Hydraulic Presses are constructed in three types of Constructions

  • H- Type Frame Construction
  • C – Type Frame Construction
  • Pillar Type Frame Construction
