Fluid Power Part 2
The Fluid Power Part 2 online 6 PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses.
Fluid power is a term which was created to include the generation, control, and application of smooth, effective power of pumped or compressed fluids (either liquids or gases) when this power is used to provide force and motion to mechanisms. This force and motion maybe in the form of pushing, pulling, rotating, regulating, or driving. Fluid power includes hydraulics, which involves liquids, and pneumatics, which involves gases. Liquids and gases are similar in many respects.
The course covers the hydraulic pump, the component in the hydraulic system which generates the force required for the system to perform its design function. The information provided covers classifications, types, operation, and construction of pumps. It also deals with the piping, tubing and flexible hoses, and connectors used to carry fluids under pressure, and discusses the classification, types, and operation of valves used in the control of flow, pressure, and direction of fluids.
Finally, the course covers the types and purposes of sealing devices used in fluid power systems, including the different materials used in their construction. Additionally, the guidelines for selecting, installing, and removing O-rings are included.
This course is based on United States Navy Naval Education and Training Materials (NAVEDTRA 12964), “Fluid Power”.
This course is intended for mechanical, civil, process & industrial and oil & gas engineers, and other design and construction professionals wanting to learn about fluid power and its use.
At the end of this PDH online continuing education course, you will be able to:
- Explain how hydraulic pumps work
- Select pump based on classifications, types, operation, and construction of pumps
- Select piping, tubing and flexible hoses, and connectors used to carry fluids under pressure
- Discuss the classification, types, and operation of valves used in the control of flow, pressure, and direction of fluids.
- Explain function of and select types of sealing devices used in fluid power systems
