FM-202 | Hydraulic Ram

  • LxWxH: 750x330x1620mm
Technical Specification
The Hydraulic Ram comprises an acrylic base incorporating pulse and non-return valves and a supply reservoir on a stand which is fed by the hydraulics bench. An air vessel above the valve chamber smooths cyclic fluctuations from the ram delivery. The weights supplied may be applied to the pulse valve to change the closing pressure and thus the operating characteristics.
Learning Objectives
  • To demonstrate the operating principles of the hydraulic ram
  • Establishing flow/pressure characteristics and determining efficiency of the hydraulic ram
  • Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC,
  • Supply head: 300-700mm variable
  • Delivery head: 750-1500mm variable
