Build and test your own circuits or experiment with a range of hydraulic circuit examples. Simply select a circuit, click the solenoids to operate the valves and see what happens. We've built a number of exercises to demonstrate what you should and should not do.
You can test a range of hydraulic components and enter your own equipment sizes to investigate how your systems should work. We also provide a number of guided simulation exercises within our training courses that demonstrate the features and performance of a range of hydraulic circuits.
This simulation program is still being extended and improved with new features and circuits being added. Let us know if you what circuits or components you'd like us to add.
We recommend the downloadable version from the pro section of this site. The exe version is generally more robust and allows you to save and load your own circuits (always check you have the latest release against the online version).
This hydraulic simulation program will allow you to operate and test a range of hydraulic components. You can see how they perform and even look inside to see the flows and pressures.
The program has been designed as a training tool that is simple to use, and difficult to make mistakes. Most traditional simulation programs require much more data to be inputted and are not suitable for people who don't have significant hydraulic experienced. The main limitation is that it will not show accurate accelerations and deceleration results although it will be less likely to go unstable and give false data.
