Last month we looked at how accumulators, directional valve pilot chokes, and crossport relief valves can all be used to absorb shock in a hydraulic system. This month we’ll talk about three other ways that shock can be absorbed.
Hydraulic shock occurs when oil rapidly starts or stops flowing in a hydraulic system. Shock can also occur when an external force acts on a hydraulic cylinder or motor. Unlike air, hydraulic oil is generally considered to be non-compressible. Shock spikes that are not properly dampened or absorbed can result in leakage and damage to the lines and components in the system. In Part 1 of this article let’s look at 3 things that can be done to reduce hydraulic shock.
