Why Are Hydraulic Motors Important?
Hydraulic motors are generally one of the largest components of a hydraulic system, which makes ensuring you have the correct part vital to the efficient running of your hydraulic system. These motors convert hydraulic pressure and flow into torque and angular displacement. Hydraulic motors are mechanical rotary actuators that are designed to run hydraulic systems at different speeds and operate at different flow levels. They work in tandem with a hydraulic pump providing the force and supply the motion to move an external load.
What Type Of Hydraulic Motors Are There?
The 3 types of hydraulic motor in common use today are gear, vane and piston motors; less commonly used motors include gerotor orbital motors. Additionally, piston motors can be categorised into axial piston motors and radial piston motors. Hydraulic motors can operate either bi-directionally or unidirectional and can be fixed-displacement or variable-displacement. Variable-displacement motors vary the flow rate by changing displacement. Whereas fixed-displacement motors provide a constant input flow driving a load at a constant speed and torque.
How to Choose A Hydraulic Motor
Determining the suitability of the hydraulic motor for your requirements depends on a number of crucial factors.
Knowing the maximum operating pressure, speed and torque the motor will need and knowing its displacement and flow requirements within a hydraulic system is just as vital. Does the motor need a bio-based, environmentally friendly or fire-resistant fluid? Can contamination be an issue? Understanding the hydraulic motor’s system’s requirements will help you to know the answer to these questions. Knowing the size and weight of the motor is important as this will affect the final size and weight of the hydraulic system.
