Basic Industrial Hydraulics Training
An introduction to hydraulic principles and concepts

self study hydraulics trainingThrough our basic hydraulics training course, you can cross train your maintenance team to the practical applications of fluid power involving pressure, flow, and force.  Gain an understanding of the symbology used to construct circuits from schematic diagrams.  Hydraulic system components such as pumps, actuators, reservoirs, fluid conductors, and valves are examined.  By building hydraulic circuits in this seminar, participants will understand these concepts:

  • Function of hydraulic components
    -including pumps, valves, cylinders, motors, and reservoirs
  • Hydraulic symbols and diagrams
  • Hydraulic hose and fittings
  • Using basic Pascal's Law concepts
  • Constructing circuits
  • Circuit analysis
  • Maintenance of hydraulic circuits
  • Causes of components failure
  • Safety procedures and practices related to hydraulic equipment


Advanced Hydraulics Training
A continuation of Basic Industrial Hydraulics providing advanced skills in hydraulic troubleshooting

advanced hydraulics training
Our advanced hydraulics training course is beneficial to Mechanics as well as those who have specializations in other disciplines of technology.  Participants will be exposed to more complex elements of hydraulic design.  They will become more effective in the installation, adjustment, and troubleshooting of industrial hydraulic systems.  Practical circuits will be created using our hands-on industrial grade hydraulic training equipment.

Topics Covered:

  • Physics of hydraulic mechanics
  • Reading hydraulic schematics
  • Building and analyzing hydraulic circuits
  • Pneumatic interfacing
  • Troubleshooting of hydraulic circuits
  • Intensifiers
  • Accumulators
  • Flow Dividers
  • Automatic reciprocation
  • Circuit design considerations
  • Filter selection and placement
  • Hidden hydraulic hazards


Basic Industrial Pneumatics Training
Gain an understanding of pneumatic components and systems

basic pneumatics training
Our basic pneumatics training course begins by breaking down the components of the pneumatic system including compressors, regulators, air dryers, heat exchangers, valves, and actuators.  Participants will construct, adjust, and analyze circuits by following schematic diagrams.  They will leave this course with valuable new skills that can be successfully applied to their jobs.  This is an excellent course for multi-craft personnel.

Topics Covered:

  • Comparison of pneumatic and hydraulic systems
  • Identify advantages of pneumatics
  • Identifications of pneumatic components
  • Pneumatic symbols and schematic diagrams
  • Metering circuits
  • Air quality
  • Logic controls
  • Pneumatic fittings and tubing

  • Building pneumatic circuits
  • Troubleshooting and maintenance practices of pneumatic systems
  • Safety procedures and practices related to pneumatic equipment


Advanced Pneumatics Training
Continuing skills developed in Basic Industrial Pneumatics with an emphasis on troubleshooting and design

Our advanced pneumatics training course is a continuation of our Basic Industrial Pneumatics course.  Troubleshooting is a major component, eliminating the “trial and error” methods through a systematic approach.  Using scenarios, participants design and construct circuits to accomplish the desired results.  With our hands-on training equipment, circuits will be developed using compressed air and vacuum.

Topics Covered:

  • Reading pneumatic schematics
  • Troubleshooting of pneumatic circuits
  • Safety circuits
  • Solenoid operated valves
  • Proportional valves
  • Pneumatic interfacing
  • Filter selection
  • Pulse circuits
  • Sequencing circuits
  • Vacuum generators
  • Pneumatic sensors
  • Automatic reciprocation
  • Design considerations
  • Building and analyzing pneumatic circuits


As with all of our courses, this is hands-on electro-hydraulics / pneumatics training, so make sure you come ready to get your hands dirty!  Electrical control of hydraulics is accomplished by using Relay circuits for connecting proportional valves, solenoid operated directional control valves, and various feedback devices.

Topics Covered:

  • Solenoid function
  • Difference between servo and proportional valves
  • Electro-hydraulic / Pneumatic symbols
  • Filtration requirements of electro-hydraulic / pneumatic valves
  • Dither, Null, Stiction, Ramping
  • AND, OR, NOT, Flip-Flop
  • Building various electro-hydraulic / pneumatic circuits including, timing, counting, latching, and automatic sequencing
  • Inrush current
  • Troubleshooting and maintenance
  • Safety procedures and practices
