Frequently Asked Questions

A hydraulic pump is a mechanical device that generates flow with enough power to overcome pressure induced by the load at the pump outlet. It’s a fundamental component in a hydraulic system, which uses fluid to transmit power from one area to another.

Its primary function is to convert mechanical energy into hydraulic energy. This is done by producing flow or oil movement, which is then pressurised according to the resistance present. The power the hydraulic pump provides is equal to the flow x pressure.

A hydraulic pump has various applications and is widely used in many industries such as construction, manufacturing, and automotive.

There are several types of hydraulic pumps including gear pumps, piston pumps, and vane pumps, each with its own mechanism and applications. The choice of hydraulic pump depends on the specific requirements of the system such as fluid type, flow rate, and pressure range.

A hydraulic pump and motor are two key components in a hydraulic system, and while they operate based on similar principles, they have distinct functions.

  1. Hydraulic Pump: The primary function of a hydraulic pump is to convert mechanical energy (like from an electric motor or engine) into hydraulic energy by generating flow. This means it takes in a volume of fluid from a reservoir at low pressure and sends it to the hydraulic system at a higher pressure. The high-pressure fluid can then be used to perform work in the system, like moving an actuator.
  2. Hydraulic Motor: On the other hand, a hydraulic motor is a type of actuator that converts hydraulic energy back into mechanical energy. It takes in high-pressure fluid from the system, which causes it to rotate, and this rotational movement can be used to perform work, like driving wheels or a conveyor belt.

A hydraulic pump and motor differ due to pumps supplying the hydraulic fluid under pressure and hydraulic motors use that fluid to create motion. Although they are built similarly and operate based on similar principles, their roles in a hydraulic system are opposite to each other. Nonetheless, CJ Plant provides excellent service on both hydraulic pump and motor repair.

There are several signs that a pump may be in need of a hydraulic repairs service. Hydraulic systems often have similar symptoms of faultiness, but nonetheless, hydraulic components often show the following signs of faultiness:

  • Excessive Noise
  • Decreased Hydraulic Power
  • Overheating
  • Cavitation
  • External Fluids Leakage
  • Poor or Erratic Performance

Again, these faults could be from any of the hydraulic applications, whether it be pumps, motors or the cylinder. Nonetheless, the best course of action every time is to have them repaired. This is because over time, there will be high amounts of wear and tear that will damage the entire system eventually.

Sometimes, contaminants such as dirt will build up within the pump’s reservoir. With regular cleaning, you can prevent this from reaching unmanageable levels. Without routine maintenance, however, this will disrupt the airflow of the machine and lower the machine’s ability to cool down. 

This essentially turns your pump into an oven and will begin to rapidly decrease its overall practical life. Before anything else, it’s almost certain that the water temperature itself won’t be what kills the machine, but it will cause a major fault that will mandate a repair. 

If the travel motors on your excavator seem to be weak or unpredictable, then you might have a problem with a leaking swivel joint. (Leaks can be internal or external) A swivel joint that leaks can keep your travel motors from getting the pressured hydraulic flow they need to function correctly. You probably won’t know you have an internal leak in the swivel joint until you notice a loss of power in the travel motor(s). It can sometimes be difficult to diagnosing a swivel joint problem.

One way to determine if the problem lies in the travel motor or the swivel joint is to check the case drain flow out of the travel motor. To do this you need to disconnect the case drain line and cap it. Capping it keeps hydraulic fluid from leaking out and prevents contaminants from getting into your hydraulic system. Next, run the travel motor, stalling it out so your tracks don’t move. Monitor the flow from the case drain line.

If your motor is in good shape, then you should see only a small amount of case drain flow. If you see a lot of flow, then you’ve probably got a final drive problem rather than a swivel joint problem. Check your machines manual to determine what the correct range is for case drain flow.
