Fluid systems are utilized in many engineering systems like machine tools, heavy machinery, chemical processes, automotive equipment, aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles. All fluid systems involve the use of power unit comprising of pumps, valves, piping, tubing, and hoses used to convey fluid under pressure.
This 6-hour course provides general information on the types and applications of hydraulic prime movers such as rotary pumps, gear pumps, screw pumps and piston pumps along with the network of valves, piping and fittings. It also discusses several types of seals and packing used in fluid power systems. This course material is based entirely on the NAVEDTRA NONRESIDENT TRAINING COURSE 14105 titled “Fluid Power” wherein the readers will be introduced to chapters 4 thru 7.
