Hydraulic Elevators How The Hydraulics Work By Caleb Hendrich Josh Lamson Jason Gonzalas (who’s not here)
The Four Components • Tanks • Motor/pump • Valve • Actuator
The Tank • This Holds the liquid used in the system • This liquid is usually oil based because: • Non compressible • Self lubricating
Motor/Pump • Constantly puts water into the system • Pressure use for mechanical advantage
Valve • Lets water out of the system. • Keeps the pressure low when open • Increases pressure when closed
Actuator • An actuator is the device that transfers fluid or electrical energy into mechanical energy.
The Elevator • All four Components are present in certain kinds of elevators • These elevators use an hydraulic system to create pressure
How is the Elevator Hydraulic? Press the up and down arrows to work the animation. (will only work in the slide show itself.)
The Components • The Tank • Present to hold the Oil • Motor/Pump • Pushed oil into the cylinder to lift the elevator • Valve • Let oil out of the system, lowering the elevator • Actuator • The actuator could be piston because it moves up and down.
