Conductive part, piping and fluids

  • Peter Albers


To get the hydraulic energy from a hydraulic pump to the various actuators a pipe system and of course a fluid is required. In this chapter we deal with the most important characteristics of the pipe system. The characteristics of the hydraulic fluid have such a large effect on the static and dynamic behaviour of the pipework. Because of this, the characteristics of the fluids themselves are also discussed.
