Our hydraulic system design guides will help users specify the loads, cylinders, valves, power units and pipework. They will allow users to select and size components from a drop-down list and modify or warn about issues with the rest of the system.
Each design guide will export a .csv file (registered users only) containing the recommended component sizes that the user can enter into a spreadsheet to back-up the final calculation evidence. These files should also contain enough information for suppliers to accurately quote the appropriate hydraulic equipment.
If you are a hydraulic equipment supplier and would like to add your data for each component and receive enquiries for equipment in your area then please contact us.
