The Hydraulics Online offices close for Christmas on Thursday 22nd December 2016 at 1.00pm and re-open again on Tuesday 3rd January 2017 with our usual opening times: 8.30am – 5.30pm Monday to Thursday and 8.30am – 4.00pm on Friday.


We love hydraulics and keen, as we always are, to share the joy and knowledge of hydraulic engineering, we have collated what we hope you will agree is some rather useful reference material…

Technical advice and assistance was first class and we would not hesitate in contacting you in the future to satisfy our requirements.

So, starting at the beginning we have an introduction to hydraulics and an overview of Pascal’s Law, the principle behind the transmission of fluid-pressure and therefore hydraulics.

We then look at Joseph Bramah, best known for having invented the hydraulic press and who along with William George Armstrong, can be considered one of the two fathers of hydraulic engineering.

As hydraulics isn’t always that easy to follow, we’ve put together a “Jargon Buster” and Hydraulic Symbols Chart to help you get your bearings.

For those that use or supply hydraulic equipment that may be used in potentially explosive atmospheres, or in workplaces that involve the use of flammable materials that could create a potentially explosive atmosphere, then it’s important that you understand the ATEX Directive and Regulations and how they apply.

And finally, based firmly on the belief that prevention is better than cure we have some hints, tips and trouble-shooting guidance for you.
