Diploma in Hydraulic Principles - Level 4
Hydraulic technology is a widely used technology that uses chemistry, engineering, applied science and other sciences to manufacture products and processes. It is used in many aspects of life from producing kitchen dishwashers, to mechanical engineering, which is why it is vital to be well versed with the hydraulic principles to have a successful career in mechanical engineering, construction, automotive and aerospace engineering. This Diploma in Hydraulic Principles Level 4 has been developed exactly for this purpose and will get you upto speed with hydraulic principles in no time.
This course will give you insights into the Archimedes theory and the hydraulic principles to brief you on how the hydraulic technology works. You will get to learn about topics such as atmospheric pressure, geometric arguments, vacuum and hydrostatic paradox, after which this course will explore backflows and actual backflows to understand why it happens. This course is also focused on enlightening you about the NPSH (Net Positive Suction Head) and how to calculate it for a piping system.
A pump is the heart of a hydraulic system that converts mechanical energy to hydraulic energy. Therefore, this course has dedicated a few modules that will tutor you on the pump operation, various types of pumps and pump performance and curves. This course will also provide you with the opportunity to understand about devices such as coupling and mechanical seals that are essential in a hydraulic technology.
