Stage 2 Offshore Hydraulics
Designed for those involved in the maintenance and management of OFFSHORE Systems using Hydraulics and Associated Controls.
This course will focus on planning, installation, commissioning, testing, fault prevention and fault diagnosis.
4 Day Course (Start time: – 1.00 pm Monday – 12.30 Friday) – Except Bank Holiday weeks
Candidates will receive a comprehensive set of course notes, lunch, refreshments, and certificate of attendance.
- To take your overall knowledge and skills to the next level to enable you to better manage and maintain complex hydraulic systems and controls associated with Offshore applications.
- Ensure that you know the causes of failure in hydraulic systems and apply the necessary preventative measures and know the procedures to follow to carryout effective fault diagnosis
During the practical sessions of this course candidates will engage and apply the following skills:
- Building a range hydraulic circuits by interpreting hydraulic circuit drawings and selecting appropriate components
- Setting up procedures covering a range of pressure, flow and load holding valves including screw in cartridge valves
- Connect the electrical interface to the hydraulic controls using manual switches and pressure switches
- Using a multi-meter to check the signal continuity of a solenoid operated valve when identified as a possible fault
- Setting up systems employing proportional control valves (pre-compensated) and load sensing axial piston pumps
- Follow correct procedures when carrying out fault diagnosis
On completion of this course candidates will know:
- How important it is to be able to read and interpret machine and system circuit diagrams and match this to a working system
- The function, operation, control and setting up procedures of a range of components used in conjunction with Offshore Applications
- The operation and performance of a range of hydraulic pumps, associated controls and setting up procedures.
- The causes of failure in a hydraulic system and the symptoms to observe and the actions to be taken
- Risks associated with working on or close to hydraulic systems and the importance of following safe working practices at all times
