Our A – Z Hydraulics Glossary e-book provides all the key terms you will encounter when working with hydraulic systems, whether you seek detailed technical help from us or know exactly what you need.
Hydraulics is an engineering discipline based on the science of fluid mechanics. As you might expect, you will encounter many scientific concepts and terms when talking about the science of hydraulics, as well as the practical application of hydraulics and the creation of hydraulic systems.
In this e-book, we seek to explain some of the key terms you can expect to encounter when working with hydraulics and hydraulic systems.
Our glossary covers everything from Abrasion (the external damage, esp. to the hose assembly, caused by rubbing on a foreign object; wearing away by friction) to working pressure (the maximum pressure to which a hose will be subjected, including momentary surges in pressure, which can occur during service) and everything in between! If you can think of any terms beginning with the letter Z, we’d love to hear from you!
