Fluid power technology, also known as hydraulic power or pneumatic power, enables the conversion of power into a more usable form through hydraulic or pneumatic processes.
Fluid power is used in a wide range of hydro pneumatic industries including construction, agricultural, mining, chemical, marine, aerospace, military, entertainment, and recycling industries. Common examples of fluid power are in truck breaks, tractors, elevators, rollercoasters.
We help you maintain maximum production performance with end-to-end service, refurbishment and technical support for your hydraulic, pneumatic and automation equipment
Whether you need a single component repaired, troubleshooting assistance, or consultation with a view to modernising your system, our skilled repairs teams support your requirements for maximum system reliability.
Utilising the latest in CAD design, paired with our 50+ years' experience, we can tailor a hydraulic, pneumatic or automation design to suit your application requirements.
Bosch Rexroth Africa has 35 branches across Africa in a distribution and support network that strategically covers industrial centres across the continent.
Fluid power refers to hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems that use compressed ‘fluid’ for fluid transfer transmission that generates more power. Hydraulic systems make use of compressed liquid, typically oil or water where pneumatic systems make use of compressed gas, typically natural gas (air) or carbon dioxide. Fluid power is also known as hydraulic power and pneumatic power.
A pneumatic system is a collection of interconnected components that makes use of compressed air. Compressed natural gas (air) or carbon dioxide is usually filtered and dried to protect the cylinders, actuators, tools and bladders performing the work. These systems are reliable, requires little maintenance and typically has a lengthy life.
A hydraulic system is a collection of interconnected components that makes use of compressed liquid to generate a larger amount of power. This fluid power system allows it to handle a large weight range without the use of gears, pulleys or leavers.
Yes, since these systems use compressed ‘fluid’ of some sort, whether it be liquid (hydraulics) or gas (pneumatics). This is also why fluid power is separated in two categories, namely hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems.
The following components are found in hydraulic and pneumatic equipment:
Accumulators and reservoirs or storage tanks
