Practical Hydraulics Applications include;

  • Construction equipment such as excavators, forklifts, trucks that use hydraulic power to lift or lower materials
  • Aircrafts use the hydraulic principle to operate their control systems
  • Food and beverage that use i.e. a beverage bottling plant where the bottles are move along a conveyor as they get filled up and sealed.
  • Vehicle maintenance. Hydraulic systems used to allow the heavy vehicles to be lifted and lowered during servicing
  • Packaging industries use hydraulic application that controls the conveyer’s belts
