Hydraulic pump troubleshooting guide
|Noise in Pump||1- Coupling problem.It may misaligned.|
2– Air intake from suction pipe.
3- Inlet pipe is pressed/Clogged which will restrict the flow.
4- Air Bubble in Fluid .
5- Inlet filter clogged.
|1- Check the Coupling.Check the shaft bearing.Replace if necessary.|
2- Tighten the joints.Pour fluid on joints and listen the sound.If there is air leakage then sound will be changed.
3- Pump should receive oil freely.There should not be any restriction in flow.
4- Check the return line.It should be below Oil level.It should be well separated from inlet line.
5- Clean the filter.
|Pump Unable to deliver||1- Low Oil level.|
2- Wrong Motor direction
3- Coupling Damaged/Coupling locking damaged.Coupling shaft Key damaged.
4- Inlet line plugged.
5 – Inlet filter clogged.
|1- Check oil level.If low then add oil and ensure the inlet line of pump submerged in fluid.|
2- Check the motor direction and pump direction.Both should match.If direction mark in pump is not visible then change the motor direction once.
3- Dismantle the motor and pump .Check the both shaft and coupling.Key or locking of coupling on shaft should be in Proper condition.Replace if necessary.
4—- Clear the inlet line.
5- Clean the Filter.
|Pump Unable to Develop pressure.||1- Pressure reducing valve setting disturbed.|
2- Relief valve not working.
3- Leakage in valves or cylinder.
4 – Low Oil level .
5- Filter Clogged.
6- Check return line filter or any valve .
|1- Set the pressure reducing valve properly.|
2- Check the relief valve .It should be in working condition.Check its spring,oil seal and screw piston.
3- Ensure there should not be any leakage.
4- Check oil level.
5- Check filter and clean or replace.
6- Clean return line filter or replaced.Check if any valve is there .Oil should return freely to tank.
Hydraulic System Troubleshooting
How do you troubleshoot a Hydraulic system?
- Oil temperature is High
Check the cooling system .Check the Pressure drop or Oil leakage.Oil condition should be proper.Replace if necessary.
- Oil Leakage
Replace the Oil seal of valve and cylinder.Check all the hose pipe joints.Check the oil temperature .If it is high then it will damage the oil seal.
- Faults in Pumps
Read the Hydraulic pump troubleshooting guide of above paragraph.
- Leakage from Cylinder piston
Replace the oil seal.Check the piston.There should not be any scratch.This will damage the oil seal.Replace/repaire the piston if necessary.
- Valve faults
Dismantle the valve check its spool movement,spring,and oil seal (O ring).Replace if necessary.
- Hydraulic system Over heating
Low efficiency causes oil temperature high . And Over heating in Hydraulic system
