Basic Hydraulics Portable (990-BH1) by Amatrol introduces students to basic hydraulic circuits, pressure control circuits, hydraulic schematics, and sequence valves. As part of Amatrol’s lineup of portable trainers, it’s built into a durable rolling case for easy portability.

Learning Outcomes

The 990-BH1 learning system allows learners to study and practice how to read a pressure gauge, as well as liquid level and temperature in the reservoir, connecting hydraulic circuits, operating a bi-directional hydraulic motor, converting between absolute and gauge pressure, and connecting and adjusting the pressure setting of a pressure relief valve (PRV).

Learners will use industrial-grade components to practice vital hydraulics skills, such as: connecting and adjusting a flow control valve to control the speed of an actuator; designing an independent speed control circuit and two-speed actuator circuit; and operating a double-acting cylinder, and operating of an integral check valve.

eLearning: All Amatrol training systems have interactive, multimedia eLearning courses and modules tied to these learning concepts. This curriculum utilizes text with voiceovers, pictures, videos, stunning 3D animations, interactive quizzes and knowledge checks, pre- and post-quizzes and more. Through partnerships with key industry leaders and leading educators, Amatrol developed the right balance of knowledge to train learners to work in their chosen field.

Student Reference Guides: A sample copy of the Basic Hydraulics Student Reference Guide is included with the learning system. Sourced from the curriculum, the Student Reference Guide takes the entire series’ technical content contained in the learning objectives and combines them into one perfectly-bound book. You may also purchase as many additional SRGs as you need.

Virtual Trainer: The 990-BH1 also features a virtual multi-media trainer! Amatrol’s virtual trainers replicate hands-on equipment in such great detail that learners will feel like they are using the actual equipment. Learners will perform essentially the same tasks using virtual trainers that they would perform using equipment hardware. Transition from theory to hands-on is a seamless process.
