Hydraulic training system

Bestech Australia has introduced its Fluid Power Training Institute’s MF102-H-TSE. According to the company, it is designed by renowned hydraulics instructor Rory McLaren, and is aimed at helping students understand the principles of hydraulics by showing them applications of the various principles and theories taught throughout their education.

Students will be able to learn about fixed displacement pump circuits, pressure-compensated pump circuits, as well as load-sensing circuits in one training system. The system also contains six directional control valves – three parallel industrial types, one series industrial type, one cylindrical spool-centred mobile type and one motor spool-centred mobile type.

According to the company, the system has an efficient and convenient use of space and energy, and is merely 76cm deep by 122cm wide and 196cm high. It was designed to fit through a standard doorway. Exclusive to the product is its Safe-T Bleed safety system, which de-energises and air-bleeds hydraulic systems and components. It is the same lockout system used in industry.

Key features include:

  • Pressure/leak testing – Teaches 95 per cent of the components in  a hydraulic system
  • Plug-and-play modules for training flexibility
  • Electronic auto-fault insertion
  • Load-cycle capable
