Fluid power is the use of fluids at a temperature under pressure to generate, control, and transmit power for industrial machinery. Fluid power is subdivided into hydraulics using a liquid such as mineral oil or water, and pneumatics using a gas such as air or other gases.End use industries range from plastics working to paper production. Applications include metalworking equipment, controllers, automated manipulators, material handling and assembly equipment. Fluid power systems offers important advantages over the other technologies as it can generally transmit equivalent power within a much smaller space than mechanical or electrical systems can, especially when extremely high force or torque is required since it transmit and control power through use of a pressurized fluid (liquid or gas) within an enclosed circuit. Types of symbols commonly used in drawing circuit diagrams for fluid power systems are pictorial, cutaway and graphic.This course focuses on defining various devices that forms the hydraulic systems,their working principle, application and fluid technology involved in accomplish the functions.
