FLUID POWER CONTROL ME604C

Applications FLUID POWER
Hydraulic systems are used where large forces are required such as in earth moving equipment, heavy cutting, Pressing and Clamping Pneumatic systems are used for relatively light moving, Clamping and Process operations

Applications FLUID POWER
Lifting a car on a Car Ramp does not require high speed or clean control systems. Large forces are required to lift the heavy car. This application is particularly suited to the use of hydraulics.

Fluid Power System Components

Properties of hydraulic fluids
FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids Density The density of a fluid is its mass per unit volume Though liquids are usually considered as incompressible, it is well known that density increases with pressure and decreases with temperature. Density is highly variable in gases nearly proportional to the pressure.  Note: specific volume is defined as:

FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids Specific Weight: NOTE: Density is absolute; and it does not depend on gravitational acceleration which varies with location.

Properties of hydraulic fluids
FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids SPECIFIC GRAVITY: Example ~ 01: A cylinder container has a diameter of 0.5 m and a height of 1 m. If it is to be filled with a liquid having a specific weight of 2000 N/m3, how many kg of this liquid must be added? What is the specific gravity of the liquid.

Properties of hydraulic fluids
FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids Pressure & pressure Head pressure depends on the column height and specific weight of the liquid and does not depend on the cross-sectional area of the liquid column.

FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids Example ~ 02: For the fluid power automobile lift system of figure given here, the hydraulic piston has a 250-mm diameter. How much of oil pressure (kPa) is required to lift an automobile of weight 1330 kg?

FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids VISCOSITY: Viscosity is a measure of a fluid’s resistance to flow. It determines the fluid strain rate that is generated by a given applied shear stress. As the temperature increases, the viscosities of all liquids decrease, whereas the viscosities of all gases increase. It may also be necessary to model the effect of pressure on viscosity if large fluctuations in pressure are expected.

Properties of hydraulic fluids
FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids VISCOSITY: Absolute Viscosity – vs – Kinematic Viscosity Unit of Viscosity: Pa S, P, cP, St, cSt Point to Note: It has a further advantage in that the viscosity of water at 20.2°C is 1 cP. Thus, the value of viscosity in centipoise is an indication of the viscosity of a fluid relative to that of water at 20.2°C.

FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids EXERCISE ~ 03 The moving plate in the figure shown is 0.7m on a side (in contact with the oil) and the oil film is 4 mm thick. A 6 N force is required to move the plate at a velocity of 1m/s. If the oil has a SG of 0.9, find the kinematic viscosity of the oil in unit of cSt.

Properties of hydraulic fluids
FLUID POWER Properties of hydraulic fluids Bulk Modulus: It is a measure of the compressibility of a liquid and is required when it is desired to calculate oil volume changes for high pressure . Water is about 80 times as compressible as steel.
