Hydraulic Equipment Terminology for Oil Industry Newcomers

Hydraulic pumps, jacks and other equipment are the work horses that keep industry humming. But for anyone who is new to industries, like the oil business, that rely on hydraulic equipment and supplies, this gear can seem quite overwhelming. But understanding some of the common parts of hydraulic pumps and jacks can help alleviate that condition. What follows are some definitions of commonly used terms in the world of hydraulic equipment and supplies.

  • Actuator - Think of the actuator as a sort of regulating device that controls motion on a piece of hydraulic equipment. It can regulate everything from how fast a drill spins to how high a piece of machinery can reach.
  • Control Valves - Regulate how much fluid is moved to the actuator. This is one of the more complicated parts of any piece of hydraulic equipment.
  • Hydraulics - At its simplest, hydraulics is the controlled use of fluids to apply pressure. The force of that pressure is what creates movement on hydraulic powered equipment that is commonly used in the oil industry.
  • Hydraulic Cylinder - This is the major moving part on any piece of hydraulic equipment. The tell tale hissing sound from hydraulic powered systems is actually the noise that comes from cylinder movement. Engine pistons and hydraulic cylinders perform very similar functions.
  • Hydraulic Fluid - Liquids used to apply pressure in hydraulic equipment. Hydraulic fluid can be water or a specially formulated compound designed for a specific piece of equipment.
  • Pneumatics - Sometimes confused for hydraulics by laymen, these systems apply the same principles, but with air instead of liquid.

    Wholesale companies that supply hydraulic equipment and parts often have catalogs that include a variety of supplies. Companies that have lots of valves, pumps, electric motors, hoses, and power units make it possible for repair contractors and retail stores to purchase the items that they need for their customers. In addition, the wholesale companies offer bulk discounts to clients who purchase large orders. You can find more information about the hydraulic equipment and parts that supply companies sell by searching for their websites. Just use a popular internet search engine. Most wholesale companies have online catalogs that make it easy for customers to browse their selection of fabricated parts, cylinders, pumps, valves, and other designs. Some of the companies focus on specific types of options, so be sure to explore the catalog and learn about all of the products that they sell. A company might, for instance, focus on electrical equipment such as power units and motors. Others might focus on hoses and supplies. The discount that you get from the hydraulic equipment and supplies wholesale company often depends on how much you buy from them. If you own a construction company that includes hydraulic pumps in its buildings, then you can probably get many of the fabricated cylinders, pumps, valves, and hoses at very cheap prices because you need large orders. Those who place small orders, however, do not get large discounts. You can also search for companies that sell surplus items that you need to operate your hydraulic equipment. This could help you save money without placing bulk orders.
