Common Problems in Fluid Power

There are certain issues that can come about when running a pneumatic or hydraulic fluid power system.

In a pneumatic system, the wide range of configurations, special designs and sizes of air cylinders, and safety considerations in today’s market adds a layer of difficulty to troubleshooting, as it can be difficult to isolate the source or sources of a problem.

To successfully maintain a pneumatic system, and to understand how to approach potential problems, factors and components such as possible air leakage, servo valves, air pressure, after-coolers, and moisture separators must be accounted for.

In hydraulic systems, issues such as slow operation or loss of power can begin to affect machine performance. These can be indicators that something is wrong with your system. Internal leakage and the resulting heat can cause other issues such as high contamination or lack of lubrication.
