About the Mobile Hydraulic Equipment Sector
From pumps and valves to cylinders, mobile hydraulics have become an integral part of our daily lives and find applications in many different industrial areas. Often taken for granted, these devices provide the power to lift heavy loads, exert high forces for clamping or pressing and to accurately position a wide range of mechanical arms.
Mobile hydraulics are one of the most important components of forklift trucks. These vehicles are regularly used, which means that the truck and its many pieces need constant maintenance and repair, which can greatly affect efficiency of the machine.
In the following example, we will focus on the maintenance of a plunger cylinder in forklift trucks assumed to be operating in temperatures ranging from -10°C to 95°C.
