The different types of pumping systems in hydraulics include:
These systems are the most basic hydraulic pumps and they work, as their name indicates, by a system of gears.
Piston hydraulic pumping systems are the most common of all and are generally found in manufacturing situations. They use high-pressure seals in tandem with pistons.
Simpler and less common, vane systems are most useful in low-pressure applications. These are positive displacement that can work with a variety of different vanes.
These are very small pumps and are typically found in smaller systems, such as trucks or vehicles. They are belt-driven.
The last of the well-know pumping systems, dump pumps are specific to dump trucks. These pumps are not suitable for any other application outside of these trucks.
Each of these systems has a different lifecycle and a different timeline for parts replacement. This is further complicated by the fact that some parts must be replaced regardless of use, while other parts do not. For example, some parts of a gear pump that are used every day will wear out before the dump pump that is only deployed once every week needs a check.
To further complicate the matter, warranties may or may not cover parts. While this came
Because these systems are so complicated and so many parts need repairing at different times, the maintenance needed goes beyond checks and replacing parts on a schedule. Some of the different types that companies may employ include:
-Conditon-based maintenance-Preventive maintenance-Proactive maintenance-Total productive maintenance-and more, depending on the company in question.
These all fall under the umbrella of a preventive maintenance plan. Each different type has a part to play in a preventive maintenance strategy, which in its turn slots into an overall strategy. In the most optimized companies, each piece flows into the next and they all work together. In other companies, it’s not so smooth. It’s a wise move to understand the different kinds of maintenance and what they offer when putting together a plan to care for your pumping systems, especially in hydraulics!
With that all being said, which parts need the most replacing on a general basis?
The parts that companies should expect to replace the most include:
-Filters-Fluid.-Accumulators-And the pumps in question
It’s really as simple as that. However, replacement is easy to forget about, as hydraulics don’t need as much maintenance as other systems. They are easier to forget and neglect, until something goes very wrong.
How can you keep track of everything?
Common mistakes are common for a reason. People just don’t remember or think about the causes of these mistakes! In order to avoid these and other mistakes, here is a simple checklist of tasks that maintain your pumping system in your hydraulics.
This is the first checkpoint for every piece of equipment. Is regular maintenance happening? Do employees understand what they should be doing on a daily, monthly and yearly basis? Are processes in place for this?
This is one of those things that is easy to forget and can come back to bite you. The fluid in your systems needs to be taken care of. Make sure that you and your employees remember this!
A leaking hose can bring everything to a screaming halt. They are also prone to drying out. Regular checks ensure that your system will not be grinding away at an unexpected time.
Change is good in some areas and absolutely terrible in others. Changes in your machinery are generally the latter sort. Keep an eye on your pumping systems and notice the little changes before they spiral out of control.
Finally, ask if things are working. Sometimes, people don’t tell other people who need to know if a machine or system isn’t at peak performance. Make sure you know what’s going on.
The best way to keep track of all the parts in your hydraulic pumping systems is by integrating the needs of these systems into your overall CMMS system. This frees you and your employees up from the strain of remembering when things need changing and enables you to focus on the tasks that you do best.
