Hydraulics and Pneumatics: A Technician's and Engineer's Guide provides an introduction to the components and operation of a hydraulic or pneumatic system. This book discusses the main advantages and disadvantages of pneumatic or hydraulic systems. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of industrial prime movers. This text then examines the three different types of positive displacement pump used in hydraulic systems, namely, gear pumps, vane pumps, and piston pumps. Other chapters consider the pressure in a hydraulic system, which can be quickly and easily controlled by devices such as unloading and pressure regulating valves. This book discusses as well the importance of control valves in pneumatic and hydraulic systems to regulate and direct the flow of fluid from compressor or pump to the various load devices. The final chapter deals with the safe-working practices of the systems. This book is a valuable resource for process control engineers.

This introductory textbook designed for undergraduate courses in Hydraulics and Pneumatics/Fluid Power/Oil Hydraulics offered to Mechanical, Production, Industrial and Mechatronics students of Engineering disciplines, now in its third edition, introduces Hydraulic Proportional Valves and replaces some circuit designs with more clear drawings for better grasping. Besides focusing on the fundamentals, the book is a basic, practical guide that reflects field practices in design, operation and maintenance of fluid power systems—making it a useful reference for practising engineers specializing in the area of fluid power technology. It provides simple and logical explanation of programmable logic controllers used in hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. The accompanying CD-ROM acquaints readers with the engineering specifications of several pumps and valves being manufactured by the industry. KEY FEATURES • Gives step-by-step methods of designing hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. • Explains applications of hydraulic circuits in the machine tool industry. • Elaborates on practical problems in a chapter on troubleshooting. • Chapter-end review questions help students understand the fundamental principles and practical techniques for obtaining solutions. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION • Provides clear drawings/circuits in the hydraulics section • Discusses ‘Cartridge Valves’ independently in Chapter 11 • Includes a new chapter on ‘Hydraulic Proportional Valves’ (Chapter 12)

This introductory textbook is designed for undergraduate courses in Hydraulics and Pneumatics/Fluid Power/Oil Hydraulics taught in Mechanical, Industrial and Mechatronics branches of Engineering disciplines. Besides focusing on the fundamentals, the book is a basic, practical guide that reflects field practices in design, operation and maintenance of fluid power systems—making it a useful reference for practising engineers specializing in the area of fluid power technology. With the trends in industrial production, fluid power components have also undergone modifications in designs. To keep up with these changes, additional information and materials on proportional solenoids have been included in the second edition. It also updates drawings/circuits in the pneumatic section. Besides, the second edition includes a CD-ROM that acquaints the readers with the engineering specifications of several pumps and valves being manufactured by industry. KEY FEATURES : • Gives step-by-step methods of designing hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. • Provides simple and logical explanation of programmable logic controllers used in hydraulic and pneumatic circuits. • Explains applications of hydraulic circuits in machine tool industry. • Elaborates on practical problems in a chapter on troubleshooting. • Chapter-end review questions help students understand the fundamental principles and practical techniques for obtaining solutions.

Fluid Power: Hydraulics and Pneumatics is a teaching package aimed at students pursuing a technician-level career path. It teaches the fundamentals of fluid power and provides details on the design and operation of hydraulic and pneumatic components, circuits, and systems. Extensive coverage is provided for both hydraulic and pneumatic systems. This book does not contain engineering calculations that will confuse students, rather applies math skills to the formulas needed by the technician-level student. This teaching package provides comprehensive exposure to the fluid power field. Bundled with the textbook is the student version of FluidSIM® Hydraulic simulation software. This popular software from Festo Learning Systems allows circuits to be designed and simulated on the computer. The software can be used with the activities in the laboratory manual or to provide additional activities of your own design.

Most of the existing books in this field discuss the hydraulic and pneumatic systems in concentrating on the design and components of the system without going deep enough into the problem of dynamic modelling and control of these systems. This book attempts to compromise between theoretical modelling and practical understanding of fluid power systems by using modern control theory based on implementing Newton's second law in second order differential equations transformed into direct relationships between inputs and outputs via transfer functions or state space approach.

OVERVIEW In this book the author projects the pneumatic systems in its totality; right from the basic level to make it useful to a wider audience, comprising system designers, component manufacturers and service engineers. The topics are dealt in such an easy fashion that even the first line technician would be able to understand the rudimentary principles of pneumatic circuit design and servicing techniques. Pneumatic devices are used in operations like work clamping, component pressing and forming, ejecting of parts on completion, etc. The latest addition to this interesting field of engineering is robotics and pick-n-place devices. KEY FEATURES Maintenance and trouble-shooting of pneumatic systems. Pneumatic circuit designs explained. Maintenance problems given in each chapter.
