 The majority of this course is based on practical exercises. This gives the individual a good understanding of the components themselves, and of their functions within a system. Throughout the exercises, we are testing components and evaluating the need for repair and then discussing repair possibilities, methods and actions. Often highlighting safe working methods, referring to industrial catalogues and standards and demonstrating the need and use of service records. This course gives any maintenance technician a good grounding in oil hydraulic systems, and in the methods of repair.

 You will cover:

  • Learning about hydraulic system components with catalogues
  • Identification, inspection and testing of components
  • Understanding components characteristics
  • Assessment of performance against specifications
  • Localising components and system faults
  • Repair and/or replacement of faulty components
  • Selection of appropriate repair and/or replacements
  • Re-assembly and testing of components against specifications
  • Writing and maintaining service reports and records

Note that HYDAC Basic Hydraulics 1 course or equivalent is the prerequisite for this course.
