 Hydraulic Basics By: B. Thrasher There are a few basic system characteristics that must go into the design of every hydraulic system. Hydraulic losses The energy loss of a hydraulic system based on the Bernoulli equation is of the form, (1) where K is a resistance coefficient found in hydraulics books, V is flow velocity, and g is gravity. This equation accounts for valves, orifices, turns, and pipe friction. Pipe Flow can be one of the major sources of loss, and losses from flow are primarily governed by flow rate. In fact, pressure loss can be approximated by the square of flow, Q. (2) System operation point Similar to an electrical system, the pressure drop across the pump must be equal to the system resistance. Due to this fact the systems operation point will be the intersection between the system curve and the pump curve. The system curve is that of hydraulic losses as a function of flow, and the pump curve is the relationship between flow and pressure (see Figure 1). As the pump curve is specific to the rpm, the system operation point shifts as the rpm is varied. One key relationship to note is that of pressure and head, (3) Flow Characteristics Viscosity is one of the main parameters that determine losses, and the more viscosity in a system the more losses but less component wear. See Figures 2-6 for a few flow optimization and fluid relationship charts. Pumps Types There are many different configurations of pumps, but all pumps fall into three main categories, centrifugal, rotary, and reciprocating. Each of these pump type will be discussed with details on some of the sub-types basic performance curves. Centrifugal Pumps Usually used in applications demanding large quantities of fluid for rapid machine movements, centrifugal pumps depend on inertia to produce pressure by accelerating the fluid about a circle. This fluid entered the eye, or center of the impeller, and is rotated around the pump until it reaches the outlet. At this time the centripetal forces is removed and the fluid flows off at a tangent to the circle of rotation. General centrifugal pump curves can be seen in Figure 7-9. Rotary Pumps The five main types of Rotary pumps are spur-gear, internal-gear, generated-rotor, sliding-vane, and screw the pump curves and diagrams can be found in Figures 10-20. Spur-gear, Internal-gear, and generated-rotor pumps are constant displacement with discharge depending mainly on shaft speed. Sliding-vane pumps can be variable displacement and operate mainly at high rpm. On the other hand, screw pumps operate at lower rpm and are fixed displacement. Reciprocating Pumps There are four main type of reciprocating pumps: radial-piston, axial-piston, duplex, and triplex. For specific characteristic pump curves and diagrams see Figures 10 and 20.
