A Brief Guide to the Design of Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems Hydraulic and pneumatic systems are used to raise loads in different applications such as in manufacturing or in any other places where engineering is involved which need regular raising of loads. There are many type of hydraulic and pneumatic systems available but their design is almost similar in many cases because the principle that they use is the same. There are cases where you may like to buy machines that make use of the principles .In such a case you should try and buy from a trusted supplier who will offer you the best systems that will not stress you while trying to make use of them. Here is a brief guide to the design of hydraulic and pneumatic systems: Take into consideration the maximum load to be lifted by the systems Mostly the systems are used in lifting loads. For you to avoid cases where you will end up failing to lift a certain load that you intend to lift while making use of the systems you should try and design them while taking into consideration the maximum load that they will carry. This can be possible after carrying out enough research and know the possible maximum load that can be lifted in making use of such a system. Consider load travel distance The systems will be lifting loads for a given distance. For you to avoid cases where the systems will fail to help you where it will fail to raise the loads to a certain height you should try and consider the maximum height that the systems can carry so that you will provide enough allowances when designing the systems. Time required raising the load to a certain distance This is another consideration that you need to consider in designing hydraulic and pneumatic systems .This is necessary because the systems will always be used in raising loads over a certain length. After taking into consideration the length you will be able to make use of the systems in whichever place you may have designed it effectively. Size of the cylinder needed in the systems The systems work in making use of a fluid which is always contained in a cylinder when the systems are not in use. This makes it appropriate for you to design the systems with a cylinder that will hold enough fluid that will enable the system that you are designing to work well. Calculate the maximum working pressures The systems work in making use of a fluid at high pressure. This makes it necessary when designing the systems to design maximum carrying capacity of the pressure which you will indicate so that whoever will be making use of the systems will avoid reaching maximum pressure which can lead to accidents .Remember high pressure is very dangerous in case the pressurized vessel fail .It can lead to leaving the heavy load that may have been lifted to drop down instantly. This can damage the systems or even injure the technicians making use of the system.
