How To Read Hydraulic Power Unit Schematics

Published on Mar 7, 2021
Schematic reading is one of the most important skills when working with complex hydraulic systems. We are going to spend a handful of videos looking at different sections of a typical system schematic, starting with the hydraulic power unit (HPU). In this video we talk about the schematic component symbols for a hydraulic pump, electric motor, various filters and heat exchangers, and a bunch of components associated with the hydraulic reservoir (or "hydraulic tank"). In future videos we'll look at actuators, valves, and more. We think you'll find this knowledge very helpful, especially when troubleshooting.

If you enjoyed the Live Schematic working animation in this video, you'll find a whole lot more of them at
