Hydraulic Equipment Questions and Answers

Hydraulic equipment is the driving force behind much of the heavy industrial work done in the United States. But most people who work in businesses that utilize hydraulic equipment and supplies take this gear for granted. Even experienced oil men can benefit from reading over these commonly asked questions about hydraulic equipment.

  • What exactly is hydraulic equipment?
    Hydraulic pumps and jacks are powered by the controlled flow of pressurized air through a series of valves to create force.

  • What's the difference between hydraulics and pneumatics?
    Hydraulic equipment is powered by pressurized fluid. Pneumatic equipment is powered by pressured air.

  • What is hydraulic fluid made from?
    Hydraulic fluid can consist of any liquid, even water. But more frequently, engineers use specifically formulated hydraulic fluid that's designed for that particular piece of machinery. There is also generic hydraulic fluid that can be used for any number of different devices.

  • What types of industries use hydraulic equipment and supplies?
    It's most commonly used in heavy industry like oil drilling and mining. But smaller pieces of hydraulics can be found in almost any industry that requires controlled force.

  • How is hydraulic equipment controlled?
    Hydraulic equipment is controlled by the movement of pressurized fluid through a series of control valves to a hydraulic cylinder. The cylinder works like a piston, sending force, or torque to the actuator. Actuators control how much movement or force is released by that particular tool or system. The actuator is what makes a hydraulic pump or jack delivers a certain, consistent amount of pressure every time it is used.

    When a company purchases hydraulic equipment and supplies from a wholesaler, they expect good customer service and reliable materials. In order to meet these expectations, wholesalers have to employ customer service representatives who can communicate well and solve problems quickly. These companies also need sales associates who can search for new clients who might want to purchase bulk orders of fabricated cylinders, pumps, valves, electric motors, and power units for their hydraulic equipment.

    When clients contact a wholesale company, they usually speak to customer service reps first. These representatives should know how to supply basic information about the types of hoses, power units, electric motors, and other designs that the client might want to purchase. These employees should also be able to acquire information from the client. That way, the wholesaler can receive their payment in a timely manner and the client will receive the order on time.

    Sales associates often know more about the industry than customer service reps. Some of them might even have backgrounds in construction, building hydraulic systems, and repairs. This experience helps them talk to potential clients about the supply options and cheap prices that they can offer.

    Managers oversee departments within the company and make sure that the different segments work toward a common goal. Some managers create training programs that teach new employees about fabricated cylinders, valves, pumps, hoses, and other items used to operate hydraulic systems. Others contact manufacturers and surplus companies to make sure they have access to cheap, reliable products. This helps the company make a profit while keeping prices low.
