Things You Will Learn
Learn about the range of ancillary equipment used on hydraulic systems. This section currently includes hydraulic filters and air breathers, hydraulic accumulators, hydraulic hose, pipework and fittings, but more will be added soon.
HE07 - How to fit hydraulic hose correctly
Learn how to fit hydraulic hose so that you avoid any twisting loads and therefore achieve the longest hose life.
HE09 - Hydraulic Pipework Sizing
HE10 - Hydraulic Fitting Assembly Guide
The thread tightness calculator will help you find the correct torque or angle of rotation for bolts and threaded fittings. Features include:
- Bolt torque vs angle calculation
- Hydraulic fitting assembly instructions
- Checking fitting remake limits
