Staff involved in the maintenance or design of industrial and mobile hydraulic systems who require a knowledge and understanding of pump control systems.
Candidates should have attended our Stage 1 Hydraulics training course and have a good understanding of modern hydraulic systems.
To provide candidates with an appreciation of energy efficient control systems to meet a specification, enabling a more authoritative approach to be made when selecting pumps and associated control systems. To provide a better understanding to those involved in the commissioning and maintenance of such systems.
Types of pumps and associated operating characteristics
Fixed displacement pumps and selected methods of control
Variable displacement pump controls, including:-
Pressure compensation with and without remote control
Review of manufacturers' recommendations
Health and performance monitoring
Practical 'hands-on' (Setting up procedures)
Open and closed loop applications
Certificate of attendance.
This course provides an excellent foundation for those wishing to gain a BFPA qualification.
Practical demonstrations and "hands-on" experience, enabling candidates to build circuits and observe performance related to specific control systems will support the course.
