A sample copy of the Basic Hydraulics Student Reference Guide is also included with the system for your evaluation. Sourced from the system’s curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. Student Reference Guides supplement this course by providing a condensed, inexpensive reference tool that learners will find invaluable once they finish their training, making it the perfect course takeaway.
Amatrol’s Intermediate Hydraulics training 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.
