Asked in Hydraulics
Is hydraulic fluid and hydraulic oil the same thing?
Hydraulic oil and hydraulic fluid are different. Hydraulic fluid is used in small systems such as car brakes. Hydraulic oil is used in large systems such as loaders. ...
Asked in Tractors and Farm Equipment, Hydraulics
Can you replace universal tractor fluid for iso 68 hydraulic fluid?
It depends on the machine you are putting it in. Some are more viscosity/climate sensitive. For the majority of tractors where the transmission and hydraulic fluid are in the same reservoir the universal will work fine. ...
Asked in Power Steering
Ford 1920 tractor what do you use for the fluid in the power steering?
It uses the same fluid as the Hydraulic system. I do not have the manual with me to teel you the rating. ...
Asked in Hydraulics
How the correlation between hydraulic motor and hydraulic pump?
Internally, they're pretty much the same. The difference is the operation expected of it - a hydraulic pump converts mechanical energy to fluid energy, whereas a hydraulic motor converts hydraulic energy to mechanical energy. ...
Asked in John Deere
Where does the hydraulic fluid go on a 2155 John Deere tractor?
The hydraulic fluid goes in the back of the tractor above the PTO shaft, there's a screw off cap; the dip stick is on the lower right of same. ...
What are several differences between hydraulic and pneumatic systems?
The main difference is that hydraulic systems use a fluid to do the work, where pneumatic systems use a gas. Components in a hydraulic system are usually thicker and heavier. Because fluids cannot compress, hydraulic system can usually push more of a load, while using less pressure. This makes them ideal for industrial uses. Pneumatic cylinders can be smaller and will reach higher pressures. Because they are lighter, they can apply faster and with more force. Pneumatic systems are also quieter and cleaner...

How does a 4 way hydraulic valve work?
4 Way hydraulic valves are often used with double acting cylinders. The valve usually has a handle that is used to change fluid direction. On the 4 way valve there will typically be 4 ports or openings for connections of hoses. Connecting hoses is done as follows: There will be an IN and OUT port and there will be an A and B port. (Different manufactures label differently so sometimes ports A & B are labeled 1 & 2 for example.)...
Asked in Auto Parts and Repairs, Chrysler Sebring
Can the top not going up mean it needs hydraulic fluid IN A 2000 CHRYSLER SEBRING CONVERTIABLE?
it can if it is hydraulic it may be an electric motor that works same way as window winder ...
Why would some industries select pneumatics over hydraulic?
it is because pneumatics is more flexible and easy to use rather than hydraulic [ebolton] There is no need to have a reservoir or return piping. The working "fluid", air, is non-toxic and non-flammable. Poster below is correct. Air systems typically have a tank that is the analog of a hydraulic reservoir.[ebolton] ***************** Actually there is need for air reservoir in industrial pneumatics systems. Hydraulics can handle more powerful aplications than pneumatics for the same overall dimensions, or can be more compact for the same power. ...
What are the features of hydraulic push cylinders?
in hydraulic push cylinder s work on Pascal's law or the Principle of transmission of fluid-pressure states that "pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid such that the pressure ratio (initial difference) remains the same. ...
Which one is dangerous hydraulic or pneumatic?
Pneumatic systems are inherently more dangerous than hydraulic systems at the same pressures. Most states have laws governing the construction of compressed air systems for just this reason. The ASME Code section 8 specifies rules for construction of air tanks (unfired pressure vessels). There are less regulations on constructing hydraulic systems. An overpressure on an air tank could result in the explosive destruction of the tank, whereas a cracked hydraulic tank would result in just a leak. ...
Asked in Mechanical Engineering, Hydraulics
What is the similarities between hydraulic pump and hydraulic motor?
Mechanically, they're very similar - in some instances, mostly the same. The difference is in their function - a pump will convert mechanical energy to fluid energy, whereas a motor will convert fluid energy to mechanical energy. ...
How can you tell difference in motor oil and hydraulic fluid?
you can smell it hydrolic oil has a distinct smell to it Answer Hydraulic fluid is almost always thinner than motor oil. Answer motor oil is slightly slick if you rub it between you're fingers. hydraulic fluid will fell the same as brake fluid when rubbed between you're fingers. motor oil (new) will (typicly) be a darker shade as well. hydraulic fluid is normally clear or very close to clear. note: you should not leave either of these fluid's on you're skin. you should wash hands...
Asked in Airplanes and Aircraft
What is the difference between a fly-by-wire system compared to hydraulic systems?
Well, both of them are related. Large jet liners require hydraulic power to operate the huge flight controls such as ailerons, elevators and rudders. In a conventional aircraft, mechanical linkages attached to the control wheel and rudder pedals are used to operate hydraulic control valves that in turn provide hydraulic fluid to hydraulic actuators that in turn move those heavy flight control surfaces. In a Fly By Wire aircraft, an electrical signal is generated when the same control wheel and rudder pedals are...
