Hydraulic Motors

Learn the various hydraulic motors and their functions.

Prerequisites

General knowledge of hydraulic schematics is required. Review of the lesson, Hydraulic Schematics, is recommended.

Description

This is the final lesson in the iKNOW™ Industrial Hydraulic Power Library. General knowledge of hydraulic schematics is required. Review of the lesson, Hydraulic Schematics, is recommended. This lesson describes various hydraulic motors and their functions. It also describes the operation of various hydrostatic drive circuits and the function of components and flowpath in a braking circuit.

Objectives

Identify the schematic symbol for a unidirectional and bi-directional hydraulic motor, Describe the functional similarity between a hydraulic pump and a hydraulic motor, Describe the flowpath through a hydraulic motor, using a cutaway diagram of a vane motor, Describe the operation of a hydraulic gear motor and a hydraulic piston motor, using a cutaway diagram of each, Express the output of a hydraulic motor in terms of horsepower, Describe the operation of various hydrostatic drive circuits from the circuit schematics and Given a schematic of a braking circuit, describe the function of the components and the flowpath through the circuit.
