This course ONLY holds a certification test, where the participant will have to demonstrate basic theoretical knowledge and understanding of hydraulic systems and components, in order to perform the maintenance, faultfinding and repair of hydraulic low and high-pressure systems.
At the end of the course, the participant should know the physical laws and their application. The participant will understand more complex hydraulic systems design, and can read advanced diagrams and symbols. Furthermore, the participant can design hydraulic systems, and perform the adjustment of them when needed. The participant will understand the requirements for cleanliness for the equipment used, and how the requirements are met in their installation, operation and maintenance.
The emphasis is on what each participant can achieve in terms of understanding of personal safety when working with hydraulics.
Staff who have completed Power hydraulics - CETOP 1, CETOP 2: Industrial Hydraulics Valves & Fluids and CETOP 2: Power Pack & Actuators or have equivalent skills.
The course is a mixture of theory and exercises in which the theory will be tested in practice. Through practical exercises the participant will receive hands-on experience of the hydraulic systems and how the components work.
The course includes the following topics:
- Fundamental principles.
- Hydraulic system components.
- Valve types.
- Fluids and contamination control.
- Reservoirs and auxiliary equipment.
- Hydraulic circuits and control functions.
The course duration is 2 days from 0830-1715.
The course includes a 2 hours written exam, which must be passed with at least 60% correct answers, and 2 times 6 hours practical hydraulic assignment, which is assessed as passed or failed.
When the exam is satisfactorily completed, an Industrial Hydraulics CETOP 2 certificate is issued.
SIMAC will provide a coat and goggles, but you will need to bring working clothes and safety shoes, since we are using our hydraulic lab for exercises.
This course complies with the general prerequisite for admission to CETOP 3 courses.
During the course lunch and coffee will be provided.
