Course Objectives (Knowledge Based)

On completion of this course candidates will know:

1. The function, operation and control of Pilot controlled DCVs, Logic Cartridge Valves, Proportional and Load Holding Valves.
2. Operation and performance of a range of hydraulic pumps and their associated controls.
3. The recommended procedures to follow when carrying out installation and commissioning.
4. The maintenance techniques in current use and their effectiveness.
5. Causes of failure in hydraulic system and the recommended fault finding procedures to follow.
6. Risks associated with working on or close to hydraulic systems and the importance of following safe working practices at all

Course Objectives (Skills Based)

during the practical sessions of this course candidates will engage and apply the following skills:

1) Build hydraulic circuits by interpreting a hydraulic circuit drawing.
2) Set pressure control valves for relief, sequence, reducing and counterbalance functions.
3) Connect the electrical interface to the hydraulic controls using manual switches and pressure switches.
4) Apply hydraulic and electrical sequencing techniques.
5) Apply load holding techniques.
6) Set up an amplifier associated with proportional control valves.
7) Use fault-finding techniques applying FCR to real circuits.
