UNITED STATES
HYDRAULIC FUNDAMENTALS

HYDRAULICS WITH TROUBLESHOOTING

AUDIENCE
All individuals required to learn basic hydraulics or
intend to continue their training and eventually take the
Hydraulics with Troubleshooting course.

AUDIENCE
All personnel required to learn hydraulics and basic
troubleshooting skills.

DURATION / COST
5 Days - $3,350
LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Understand and describe basic hydraulics theory


with emphasis on component and circuit functions
and the related measurement instrumentation.

Demonstrate circuit analysis skills in reading


schematics and diagrams, using symbol
recognition and in tracing circuit paths.

Perform circuit parameter measurements for many


different circuit configurations.

Relate the schematic drawing to where physical


measurements need to be taken to verify proper
operation.

Perform related conversions between Metric and


Imperial Measurement Systems.
COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to give the student a working
understanding of hydraulic fundamentals. It will include the
following topics: Pascals law and the units of pressure,
force, flow rate and differential pressure measurement.
The student will develop an understanding of simple and
moderately complex hydraulic circuits. The course
includes familiarization with the fluid power symbols of
most major fluid power components. Students will build
circuits and use lab procedures in order to develop
understanding of basic hydraulic processes. The training
sessions are designed to include a discussion of hydraulic
fundamentals followed by a practical lab session to
reinforce the students skill and knowledge.

DURATION / COST
5 Days - $3,350
LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Understand, describe and apply basic hydraulics


theory with emphasis on components and the
circuit functions and related measurement
instrumentation that can and will be used to identify
component/circuit operations and malfunctions.

Demonstrate circuit analysis skills in reading


schematics and diagrams using symbol recognition
and in tracing circuit paths.

Perform repetitive circuit parameter measurements


and analyze performance trends for proper
operation and fault finding.

Demonstrate use of various troubleshooting and


process measurement techniques.

Relate the schematic drawings to where physical


measurements are taken to identify/diagnose fault
conditions.

Perform related conversions between Metric and


Imperial measurement systems and work in both
systems.
COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to enhance the students
understanding of hydraulics including identifying circuit
malfunctions. Students will build circuits and use test
equipment to troubleshoot problems in order to gain the
practical experience required to locate and solve hydraulic
problems similar to those found on modern drilling equipment.
The training sessions are each designed to include a
discussion of hydraulic fundamentals followed by practical lab
sessions designed to reinforce the students skills and
troubleshooting capabilities.
