Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems

Hydraulic systems have many advantages as power sources Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems for operating various aircraft units; they combine the advantages of light weight, ease of installation, simplification Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems of inspection, and minimum maintenance requirements.
Hydraulic operations are also almost 100 percent efficient, Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems with only negligible loss due to fluid friction.
Hydraulic Fluid Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems Hydraulic system liquids are used primarily to transmit and Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems distribute forces to various units to be actuated.

Liquids Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems  are able to do this because they are almost incompressible.
Pascal’s Law states that pressure applied to any part of a confined liquid is transmitted with undiminished intensity to every other part. Thus, if a number of passages exist in a system, pressure can be distributed through all of them by Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems means of the liquid.
Manufacturers of hydraulic devices usually specify the type Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems of liquid best suited for use with their equipment in view of the working conditions, the service required, temperatures expected inside and outside the systems, pressures the liquid must withstand, the possibilities of corrosion, and other conditions that must be considered. If incompressibility Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems
and fluidity were the only qualities required, any liquid that is not too thick could be used in a hydraulic system.

But a satisfactory liquid for a particular installation must possess Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems a number of other properties. Some of the properties and
characteristics that must be considered when selecting a Hydraulic and Pneumatic
Power Systems satisfactory liquid for a particular system are discussed in the following paragraphs.

Viscosity
One of the most important properties of any hydraulic fluid is Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems its viscosity.

Viscosity is internal resistance to flow.

A liquid such as gasoline that has a low viscosity flows easily, while a liquid such as tar that has a high viscosity flows slowly.
Viscosity increases as temperature decreases. A satisfactory liquid for a given hydraulic system must have enough body Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems to give a good seal at pumps, valves, and pistons, but it must not be so thick that it offers resistance to flow, leading to power loss and higher operating temperatures.

Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems These factors add to the load and to excessive wear of parts. A fluid that is too thin also leads to rapid wear of moving parts or of parts that have heavy loads. The instruments used to measure the viscosity of a liquid are known as viscometers or Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems viscometers. Several types of viscosimeters are in use today.
The Saybolt viscometer measures the time required, in seconds, for 60 milliliters of the tested fluid at 100 °F to pass through a standard orifice. The time measured is used to Hydraulic and Pneumatic Power Systems express the fluid’s viscosity, in Saybolt  niversal seconds or Saybolt furol seconds.
