Amatrol’s Intermediate Hydraulics learning system (85-IH) introduces advanced hydraulic components (pilot-operated check valves, two-position directional control valves, telescoping cylinders, etc.), explains how each works, and then shows how they relate to real-world applications in elevators, punch presses, backhoes, and many more. This approach to curriculum is an Amatrol signature: reinforce both theory and practice to produce a well-rounded understanding of the topic. Learners will be able to understand concepts like pressure intensification and cylinder regeneration while also being able to operate, install, design, and troubleshoot hydraulic components.

Intermediate Hydraulics includes directional control valves, relief valves, a flow control valve, a check valve, and an accumulator. Amatrol training systems use industrial-grade components displayed on hand-welded, painted and silk-screened panels, and workbenches made from top-flight materials. This precise attention to quality and detail ensures a tough, visually appealing, user-friendly design that will last for years and help learners gain experience with components they’ll actually see on the job.

The skills and principles offered in Intermediate Hydraulics build on the fundamentals taught by the Basic Hydraulics (85-BH), but also lead to additional, more advanced learning systems such as Advanced Hydraulics (85-AH) and Electro-Hydraulics (85-EH). The advanced hydraulics training system teaches learners about hydraulic performance analysis and maintenance, while the electro-hydraulics training system (which is used in several exercises with the intermediate hydraulics training system) introduces electrical relay control of hydraulic systems.

Real World Industrial Hydraulic Applications

Intermediate Hydraulics teaches how different valves and cylinders introduced by this learning system are implemented in real-world applications, such as on dump trucks, hydraulic presses, or conveyor drive systems used on soft drink bottling lines. As an example, learners will study two types of cam-operated valves, their construction, and how their designs are optimal for switching from a high flow to a low flow in order to operate a cylinder at a slow rate for the rest of the stroke. Learners will see how each of these valves are implemented in industry-relevant applications like an injection molding machine before practicing skills on a cam valve included with the Intermediate Hydraulics trainer.

World-Class Multimedia Curriculum for Hydraulics Training

Intermediate Hydraulics Training Course (MB832)

The 85-IH teaches how different valves and cylinders introduced by this learning system are implemented in real-world applications, such as on dump trucks, hydraulic presses, or conveyor drive systems used on soft drink bottling lines. As an example, learners will study two types of cam-operated valves, their construction, and how their designs are optimal for switching from a high flow to a low flow in order to operate a cylinder at a slow rate for the rest of the stroke. Learners will see how each of these valves are implemented in industry-relevant applications like an injection molding machine before practicing skills on a cam valve included with the 85-IH trainer. From the physical practice of assembling accumulator circuits to the detailed equation for calculating the maximum pressure in a pilot-operated check valve, Amatrol’s thorough and precise interactive hydraulics curriculum lends itself to both self-paced and traditional teaching methods. Within this course, learners will study topics like the function of a hydraulic cam-operated valve, the operation of a pressure-compensated flow control valve, methods of pump unloading, and how actuator relaxation occurs in a multi-actuator circuit.

Amatrol’s peerless interactive multimedia curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, and interactive quizzes and reviews that engage learners in theoretical knowledge and concepts. This thorough, detailed curriculum begins with the basics and advances to complex concepts. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field.

Expanded Teaching Options

Learners can build on the skills they have acquired from the Intermediate Hydraulics training system by progressing to Amatrol’s Advanced Hydraulics training (85-AH), as well as the Electro-Hydraulics training (85-EH) and Electro-Fluid Power training (85-EF). Advanced Hydraulics covers hydraulic motors, pump and flow, heat exchanges, and filtration. This learning system includes a digital tachometer, return line filter assembly, and viscosity gauge. Electro-Fluid Power covers electrical relay control of hydraulic and pneumatic systems, dealing with topics such as control transformers, fuses and circuit breakers, and solenoid operated directional control valves. Electro-Hydraulics concentrates solely on hydraulic systems in relation to electrical relay control through topics like pushbuttons, ladder diagram schematics, and selector switches.

Student Reference Guide

A sample copy of the Intermediate Hydraulics Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the multimedia curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfect-bound book.
