How do you bleed air out of a hydraulic hand pump

hydraulic hand pump

You bought a new hand pump but found that the hand pump does not suction oil when it is working. Even if you press the handle of the hand pump repeatedly, the hand pump starts to suction oil, and the oil intake is much less than normal. Please don’t worry, this is because there is a shortage of oil inside the fuel tank of the manual pump and it has not been used for a long time, and air has entered the inside of the plunger of the manual pump. At this time, we need to bleed the air inside the plunger, and the manual hydraulic pump can work normally.

Let’s take a RIVERLAKE P-462 two-speed hydraulic hand pump as an example, in order to completely expel the air inside the hand hydraulic pump plunger, please follow the steps below:

1. Fill the manual pump oil tank with hydraulic oil, connect the manual pump, hydraulic hose, and hydraulic cylinder

2. Turn the air release valve clockwise to open the air release valve

3. Rotate counterclockwise to loosen the air release screw of the plunger, turn on the manual position valve of the manual pump, and press the handle repeatedly to discharge the air inside the piston. When the air is exhausted, tighten the plunger bleed screw by turning counterclockwise and wiping the surface of the hand pump with a rag.

4. Now that we have expelled the air from the hand pump piston, we still need to test the hand pump to confirm that the problem has been solved. Turn off the hand pump switch, retract the hydraulic cylinder, turn the hand pump switch back on, and press the hand pump handle repeatedly, the first need to press The force of the hand pump will be relatively large, and the hydraulic cylinder piston will also start to rise rapidly. This is because in the first stage of the two-speed hydraulic pump, the larger plunger in the hydraulic pump works; once the piston rises to the maximum height, the pressure reaches the first stage. The pressure required for the second stage, the force required to press the handle is greatly reduced, because the smaller plunger in the hand pump starts the second stage pressurization work. After the test is completed, if everything is normal, it means that the air in the hand pump has been completely discharged.

Wind Turbine Guide: introduction, installation, and maintenance

WHAT IS A WIND TURBINE AND HOW DOES IT WORK? ​ A wind turbine is a device that converts kinetic energy from the wind into electrical energy. The most common type of wind turbine uses a rotor to capture the wind’s kinetic energy and turn it into rotational energy. This rotational energy is then converted into electrical energy by a generator. Wind turbines have been around for centuries, but have only recently become popular as people have looked for ways to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. Turbines can be used to generate power for homes and businesses, and can also be connected to the electrical grid. While there are some concerns about the impact of turbines on the environment, they are a much cleaner alternative to traditional power sources. HISTORY OF WIND TURBINES ​ The history of wind turbines is a long and varied one. The first wind turbines were built by the Egyptians in the 3rd century BC. These early turbines were used to power sailboats. In the 18th century, Dutch windmills were used to pump water out of mines. In the early 20th century, wind turbines began to be used to generate electricity. Today, wind turbines are

How to Choose the Right Hydraulic Torque Wrench for your Job

What is a hydraulic torque wrench? A hydraulic torque wrench is a tool used to apply torque to a joint or bolt. It uses the power of hydraulic fluid to rotate the wrench handle and apply pressure to the bolt or joint. Torque wrenches are helpful when installing or removing parts in difficult-to-reach places, and they can also be used for general repairs. Types of hydraulic torque wrenches There are many types of hydraulic torque wrenches available on the market today. Some of the more common types include low profile, square drive, and dial-style torque wrenches. Each type has its own unique benefits that can be useful in certain situations. Low-profile torque wrenches are often considered to be the most compact option available. They’re also typically the least expensive option, making them a good choice if you only need a wrench for occasional use. They have shorter handles and smaller heads, which make them ideal for tight spaces or areas with limited space. Square drive torque wrenches are similar to low profile torque wrenches in terms of their size and capabilities. However, they have wider heads and longer handles, which makes them easier to use when working with large bolts or screws.
How To Remove Bearings For Replacement

How To Remove Bearings For Replacement

Regardless of the type of bearing or the conditions under which it operates, all bearings eventually wear out and have to be replaced. Nowadays, the two most common ways to remove an old bearing are either to use a bearing puller to remove the bearing or use a bearing heater to disassemble the bearing. We will talk about both the advantage and disadvantages of the two ways. Bearing Removal With A Bearing Puller When using a bearing puller to remove the bearing, the price is particularly cheaper, but its disadvantage is that it may scratch the shaft if carefully operated. Because of the difference in mechanical mechanism and driven power, pullers can be divided into hydraulic pullers and mechanical pullers, two-jaw pullers, and three-jaw pullers. Before disassembling the bearing, choose a suitable type of puller from the puller manufacturer with sufficient capacity to finish the task. Bearing Removal With The Bearing Heater Heating bearings is a good way to temporarily expand the bearing rings to facilitate mounting or disassemble without the use of excessive force that could damage bearings. Major manufacturers of the bearing puller around the globe 1.Taizhou Chuanhu Hydraulic Machinery Co., LTD The company was set up in 2005. It is presently the foremost manufacturer of hydraulic
Hydraulic Cylinder Leaks (And How to Fix them)

Hydraulic Cylinder Leaks (And How to Fix them)

What is a Hydraulic Cylinder, and How does it work? A Hydraulic Cylinder is a mechanical actuator, designed to carry a Hydrostatic force in a single direction. Commonly used in construction equipment, civil engineering, and machinery designed for the manufacturing process. A hydraulic cylinder uses any form of hydraulic fluid, typically oil, that is pushed back and forth by a piston into each side of the cylinder. This enables the linear motion to work, making machines such as Bulldozers and tractors carry out movements such as breaking down buildings or heavy lifting that cannot be done through human force. Hydraulic cylinders consist of a piston rod, a piston seal, and two separate regions, all nutted and bolted together to exert the force of hydraulic fluid within the cylinder tube. A hydraulic cylinder exerts massive amounts of force, anywhere from several kilograms, to a couple of thousand tonnes! Whatever linear motion you need automating, a good quality hydraulic cylinder is the perfect solution for any manufacturing, farming, civil engineering, or automation company’s needs. What Causes Hydraulic Cylinders to Leak? A common problem for high-load engineering and manufacturing companies is working out ways to minimize leakages from their hydraulic cylinders. Leakages in
