The many applications of a hydraulic pump
Hydraulic pumps convert mechanical energy into hydraulic energy and therefore find application in almost every industry that involves a manufacturing process. This includes the industry of transportation technology, war engineering, railway engineering, the automobile industry, the paper industry and any manufacturing process.
They are used in every hydraulic system. The operation of a hydraulic pump can be understood by means of its two mechanical actions. The first mechanical action is intended at creating a vacuum which will then cause atmospheric pressure to act and cause the fluid from the reservoir to move to the pumps. The second mechanical action in the operation of a hydraulic pump causes this fluid to move to the pumps at the outlet and into the hydraulic system. This operation is required specifically where the energy required in high and some very familiar machines relying on hydraulic systems and pumps are cranes, tractors, excavators and mining machines to name a few.
