Why Basic Hydraulic Training?

If you have hydraulics, you know that contamination, overheating, breakdowns, unexpected behavior, and poor performance are pretty common hydraulic problems.

And, as sure as hydraulic fluid makes a mess when it leaks onto a floor, you also know that most of the people working with hydraulic equipment haven't been trained on:

  • • what it takes to prevent hydraulic problems;
  • • how to get the best possible performance and longest possible life from hydraulic components & systems;
  • • how "hydraulics" work;
  • • what hydraulic components and circuits do; and
  • • how to read hydraulic schematics.

As a result, companies have hydraulic problems that could have been prevented, along with additional unnecessary downtime as mechanics use "trial and error" trying to fix problems. Basic hydraulic training changes that.

What Do You Want From Your Basic Hydraulic Training?

If you're like most companies, you'd like to provide your personnel with hydraulic training that reduces your hydraulic downtime and improves productivity by having your personnel learn:

  • • what it takes to prevent hydraulic-related problems;
  • • how to get the best possible performance and longest possible life from your hydraulic components; and
  • • how to do better and faster hydraulic troubleshooting.

Will Your Company and Your Personnel Benefit From Our Training?

Imagine for a moment you've received a brand new piece of equipment that has 3 cylinders.

During setup, all 3 cylinders completely extend with no load. However, when the cylinders are put under load, the cylinder lifting a 20 ton weight extends, but the cylinders lifting 10 ton and 2 ton weights both stall. To add insult to injury, your hydraulic fluid starts to rapidly overheat when the cylinders lifting 10 ton and 2 ton weights stall.

Would your personnel need some help in order to read a schematic, explain why only the heaviest weight is lifted, and identify the most likely way to easily get all 3 cylinders to extend under load? If so, your personnel will do their jobs better and your company will save money if you provide them with basic hydraulic training.

Here's a hydraulic schematic of the situation. Text shown in black or gray is printed on the schematic, blue text shows readings taken as the cylinders stall:

What You Get

The training you'll be providing your personnel answers the question, "what do you need to know in order to:

  • • prevent hydraulic problems;
  • • get the best possible performance from hydraulic components and systems;
  • • get the longest possible life from hydraulic components; and
  • • do a better and faster job of hydraulic troubleshooting?"

The things your personnel learn include:

  • • what "hydraulics" is and how "hydraulics" work;
  • • what hydraulic components do;
  • • how to prevent hydraulic problems;
  • • what it takes to get the longest possible life from hydraulic components;
  • • how to get the best possible performance from hydraulics;
  • • how to read hydraulic schematics;
  • • how hydraulic circuits work;
  • • how to pinpoint hydraulic problems.

Bottom line is that providing your personnel with basic hydraulic training will not only help you reduce the headaches and frustration both you and your personnel experience when there's a hydraulic problem, but will also enable you to save your company money by reducing the number of breakdowns, shortening the length of any hydraulic downtime, extending hydraulic component life, and getting your hydraulic equipment to operate as effectively as possible.

Potential Payback

After attending our 2-Day course, the maintenance personnel at a company in Decatur, Illinois used what they'd learned to make a $3,000 modification to a press. Over the course of the next 3 years, that $3,000 modification saved the company more than $105,000 in downtime and replacement component expenses.

Your savings may not be as dramatic or as easy to track, but if you're like many of our customers, your decision to provide your personnel with basic hydraulic training provide your company with a quick payback on your investment one of our basic hydraulics courses.
