What is the difference between hydraulic motors and pumps?

Hydraulic pump is a power absorbing device. It converts electric energy to mechanical energy. The main function of the pump is to produce Dischearge of flow and not develop pressure. Pressure is developed by restriction to flow. Hydraulic motor works exactly opposite to hydraulic pump. It is an power producing device. It uses the flow generated by hydraulic pump to produce rotational movement.

What is the hydraulic fittings?

Hydraulic fittings are components that enables connecting hoses and steel tube between the various components (pumps, valves, hydraulic motors, etc.) in a hydraulic system.

What is hydrostatic resistance?

Hydrostatic resistance is another term of hydrostatic pressure. This is the pressure exerted by a fluid due to the force of gravity. This increases with depth because of the increasing weight of the fluid above a certain point.

What is the difference between permeability and hydraulic conductivity?

Permeability is a measure of how well a porous media transmits a fluid. It has nothing to do with the fluid itself. It is measure in (length)2. The Hydraulic Conductivity is a measure of how easily water moves through the porous media. It depends on the permeability of the matrix, but also is a function of the fluid. It is a measure of (length)/(time)

Comparison between pneumatic and hydraulic system?

pressures: pneumatic, typically 80 psi hydraulic, typically 2000 psi size for size, hydraulics are much more powerful. also hydraulic oil is incompressable, important in control situations.
