1 Landstown High School Governors STEM & Technology Academy Advanced Robotics Chapter 6- Fluid Power Systems Dr. Barger

2 Fluid Power Systems Fluid power systems use air or liquid, or a combination of both, to transfer power. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

3 Fluid Power Systems Transfer Methods – Electrical energy is often used to drive a fluid pump. – Electrical energy and mechanical motion are converted into the energy of a flowing liquid. Hydraulic systems use oil, or other liquids, while pneumatic systems use air. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

4 Fluid Power Systems All fluid power systems consist of: – Controls, – An energy source, – A transmission path, – A load, – Indicators, © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

5 Hydraulic System Model Hydraulic Systems are used for many applications in Robotics: – Operates motors, – Actuators, – Cylinders (load devices) Usally electrical energy drives a pump which provides hydraulic pressure, © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

6 Hydraulic System Model Prime Mover system – A prime mover is a component of a power system that provides the initial power for movement in the system,, – The motor receives electrical energy from the source and converts it to rotary energy or movement. – The pump converts the rotary energy into fluid energy. © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc.

8 Hydraulic System Model © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Control Systems –A typical hydraulic fluid power system includes a number of control devices, Directional control valve (DCV) (cylinders), Pressure relief valves, –A pressure relief valve is a control device that protects the system from stress and damage caused by over pressurizing the system.

10 Pneumatic System Model © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. In a typical pneumatic system, the energy source powers a compressor which forces air into a pressurized storage tank. –The compressor is most often driven by an electric motor, or internal combustion engine. –The storage tank hold the pressurized air and acts as a reservoir for the system. –Typical uses are for: Power tools, and Lifting and clamping during machining operations.

12 Characteristics of Fluid Flow © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Fluid power systems do not achieve 100 percent power transfer, –Due to friction from the cylinder walls, –This friction is known as resistance or power loss, –Power loss materializes primarily as heat,

13 Pneumatic Systems © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Turbulence –Refers to how the fluid moves through the fluid power system. Conditions of the system, such as: – size and smoothness of the tubing walls, –Location and number of valves and fittings, may cause irregular flow characteristics.

14 Pneumatic Systems © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Pressure drops –Restrictions within the system are also a source of pressure drops. These can be caused by: –Control valves, tubing length, or small tubing size Energy Loss –As fluid pressure enters the system, it has the ability to perform a specific amount of work. –Fluid energy is lost because it is changed into heat due to friction and resistance.

16 Pneumatic Systems © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Compression of Fluids –A notable difference between hydraulic and pneumatic systems is the compressibility of the fluids, All gases and liquids are compressible under certain conditions for each, –Hydraulic fluid is considered incompressible, –Air in pneumatic systems is readily compressible.

17 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Pascals Law –Pressure applied to a confined fluid is transmitted, undiminished, throughout the fluid. This pressure acts on all surfaces of the container, at right angles to those surfaces, For this reason, the walls of the cylinder must be strong enough to withstand the pressure.

18 Pascals Law © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. LS 6-5

19 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Terminology –Force Is any factor that tends to produce or modify the motion of an object. –Inertia- the amount of force needed to produce motion (or resistance to change) of the body to be moved. –Pressure Is the amount of force applied to a specific area. Usally in pounds per square inch (psi).

20 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Fluid Power System Components –Fluid Pumps The heart of a fluid system. It provides an appropriate flow to develop pressure. Two general classifications: –Positive displacement pump, »Has a close clearance between the moving member and stationary pump components, –Non-Positive displacement pump »The fluid is moved by the impeller blades during each revolution.

22 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Examples –Reciprocating pumps- Positive displacement, –Rotary Gear Pumps- positive displacement, –Rotary Vane Pumps- positive displacement, –Centrifugal pumps- non-positive displacement,

26 Centrifugal Pumps © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. LS 6-10

27 Pressure Regulator Valve Operation © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. LS 6-11

28 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Fluid Conditioning Devices –Both hydraulic fluid and air must be conditioned before being processed through a fluid power system. –Conditioning devices prolong the life of fluid power systems by removing foreign particles and moisture.

29 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Hydraulic Conditioning –The number of components, types of control devices and operating environment are major considerations in hydraulic fluid conditioning. –Types used: Strainers- Inline devices, Filters- Inline device, Heat exchangers- –Forced-air fans, –Water-jacket coolers, –Gas coolers.

30 Principles of Fluid Power © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Pneumatic Conditioning –Several types of devices are used but the most often is a filtering device, Filters –Filtering must remove moisture and foreign particles, so they contain desiccant, which is a very dry material designed to attract moisture, Lubricators –Lubricators are devices that add a small quantity of oil to the air after it leaves the regulator. The lubrication helps the valves and cylinders operate more efficiently.

32 Fluid Power Systems © Goodheart-Willcox Co., Inc. Control Devices –Control is achieved by devices that alter the pressure, direction and volume of fluid flow. Pressure Control Flow Control Direction Control
