Hydraulic Tank Design, Task & Type.

In this article we will learn about hydraulic tank basic concept, its design, tasks, components, the importance of pressure ratio in a hydraulic tank, which component is responsible for which task & hydraulic tank types. So, be ready for an adventurous journey of knowledge.

Hydraulic fluid is the media which transfer force with the help pressure & flow. Therefore, amount of hydraulic fluid is very important in a hydraulic system and it depends on force multiplication and motion multiplication. For example,

(Fig. 1) In this example amount of fluid deciding stroke length.

We have read in How hydraulic works: Basic- Part-I that how simple hydraulic jack works and help to lift heavy load such as car’s wheels. For example in figure 2 this amount of hydraulic oil is not sufficient for lifting tyre enough to change. So, what we can do?

In Next page we will try to get the answer.
