This comprehensive compendium of hydraulic system and component troubleshooting procedures covers the following topics:

  • Safety.
  • Selection and proper and safe use of diagnostic equipment.
  • System start-up and solving start-up problems.
  • Procedures for testing hydraulic pumps: flow testing; cavitation; case pressure testing.
  • Procedures for testing pressure control valves: pilot-operated relief valves; direct-operated relief valves; sequence valves; unloading valves; counterbalance valves.
  • Procedures for testing industrial sub-plate mounted directional control valves: spool/bore leakage test; circuit module leakage test; testing two-stage valves.
  • How to execute two-stage valve conversions: internal pilot to external pilot and vice-versa; internal drain to external drain and vice-versa.
  • Procedures for testing mobile directional control valves: spool/bore leakage test; testing load-check valves; testing cylinder-port relief valves; testing anti-cavitation valves; testing integral pressure relief valve.
  • Procedures for testing cylinders: end-stroke “dead-head” seal test; intermediate bore test; through-stroke test.
  • Procedures for testing hydraulic motors: in-circuit test procedure; direct access test procedure; testing motors in series; testing motors in parallel.
  • Testing cartridge valves: isolating problems in multiple cartridge manifold assemblies.
  • Testing flow control valves.
  • Testing check valves: in-line check valves; pilot-operated check valves.
  • Safety with accumulators: how to pre-charge accumulators with nitrogen.
