Insights of Fluid power

Basics of hydraulics & pneumatics

Fluid power is as old as our civilization itself. Water was used for centuries to produce power by means of water wheels and air was used to turn windmills and to propel ship. Fluid power technology actually began in 1650 with the discovery of Pascal’s law. Fluid power is the technology that deals with the generation, control and transmission of forces and movement of mechanical element or system with the use of pressurized fluids in a confined system. They are known as muscle power that drive the industry. Both liquids and gases are considered as fluids. Fluid power system includes hydraulic and the pneumatic system. Oil hydraulic employs pressurized liquid petroleum oil and synthetic oils and pneumatics employs compressed air that is released to the atmosphere after performing the work. The application of fluid power satisfy the requirement of industry such as to lifting, pushing, pulling, clamping, tilting, forcing, pressing or any other straight line (and many rotary)motions, it is possible that fluid power will meet the requirement. Hydraulics and pneumatics have almost unlimited application in the production of goods and services in nearly all sectors of the country. Several industries are dependent on the capabilities that fluid power affords
