    Hydraulic Boom & Pump Operator

    Course Description

    • Hydraulic systems are widely used in various manufacturing industries. The diversity of hydraulic components and control techniques varies depending on the application area. Understanding operating systems, symbols, control valves, and safe operation procedures is important for people involved in monitoring hydraulic systems for production operation.
    • This course explains the underlying principles of hydraulic power generation and controls in relation to practical systems. It is a guide to the details that are so important in understanding the complete hydraulic system operation principles and identifying abnormalities for countermeasure.
    • Hydraulic Systems: Principles, Operation, and Maintenance training course provides participants with greater working expertise and understanding of hydraulic power systems.  The course delivers an interactive training experience designed to help participants understand the various components found in a typical hydraulic system and how these components function and interact with each other.
    • Participants will also learn about the major groups of hydraulic components, including the function and principles of operation of direct-and pilot-operated relief valves, pressure-reducing valves, directional control valves, fixed- and variable-displacement pumps, and accumulators. Understanding of the basic hydraulic circuits most often used in industrial hydraulic systems are covered. Hydraulic principles of mechanical maintenance, types of hydraulic oils and their characteristics will be also covered.
    • This training course is designed for participants to learn and recognize faults and damage to major components in hydraulic systems during the inspection and to carry out the hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors complete overhauling.
    This training course will highlight:
    • Principles of Hydraulic Power Systems
    • Problems Related to Hydraulic oils
    • Variable and Fixed Displacement Hydraulic Pumps
    • Principles of Operation of Control Valves
    • Operation of Basic Hydraulic Circuits used industrial hydraulic systems
    • Maintenance, Inspection, and testing of Hydraulic System
    • The required maintenance and overhauling for the hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors.
    • At the end of In this training course, you will learn to:
    • Identify the hydraulic system components and the function of each component
    • Recognize the impact hydraulic oils have on the components
    • Understand and interpret hydraulic symbols
    • Understand the correct operation procedures of hydraulic systems
    • Explain maintenance and troubleshooting practices that apply to the entire hydraulic system
    • Explain the correct maintenance technique and procedures to make complete overhauling for the hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors.
