What A Hydraulic Troubleshooter Needs To Know

Hydraulic equipment is a risky business when trying to identify issues and problems. When troubleshooting issues, it’s important to know what you are doing, or at the very least, employ someone who knows what they are doing. Regardless, it’s always a good idea to refresh your memory on what is important. This is why today we will be breaking down the most important things every hydraulic trouble-shooter needs to know.

Understanding Of The Process: 

Before you troubleshoot anything in life, it’s best that you have a comprehensive understanding of everything involved. Hydraulic Troubleshooters should therefore know the function of all components before trying to assess the problem. This is especially important in Hydraulics as every component provides the equipment with a specific function.

Knowledge Of The Procedures:

When it comes to dealing with dangerous Hydraulic Equipment, the correct procedures are vital. If a hydraulic troubleshooter is not aware of the correct procedure, they may unwillingly misdiagnose a problem. For example, the so-called problem might only require a small tweak to get everything up and running again. However, if the problem is labelled as something more serious, a company might expend a lot of resources to fix something that was a simple fix all along.

On-the-Job Experience:

A Hydraulic troubleshooter should also have experience in dealing with the necessary tools, such as schematics. If a troubleshooter has never used a schematic before, they will be unable to understand the equipment and will therefore be unable to adequately troubleshoot a problem. Sure, you might be able to get away with simple tasks, but for anything complicated, a schematic is crucial.

Alongside the ability to read schematics, it is also vital that a Hydraulic Troubleshooter understands the importance of relevant symbols. When it comes to a valve, the symbol can include a wealth of information, such as whether or not it is normally open, its position and if it has a spring return. This is also valuable information that would be missed by anyone that can’t read hydraulic symbols.

Therefore, in order to be an effective Hydraulic troubleshooter, make sure you can read! Schematics and symbols, that is, of course.

There you have it, quick-fire information on what makes a successful hydraulic troubleshooter. Just remember that the process is dangerous and so while proper understanding and knowledge are important for successfully finishing a job, it is also crucial for your safety.
