How Do Hydraulics Work? – A Brief Explanation
Potential investors come to us with many outstanding questions about the hydraulic and industrial hose market. But to understand why smart investors are tapping into it, it’s essential to first ask: how do hydraulics work and why should I invest in this market?
Why Is This Market Considered a Good Investment?
The short answer? Our entire economy depends on them! Hydraulic and industrial hoses carry different liquids such as gas, water, synthetics, and other materials from their source to machines and applications. Almost every industry imaginable depends on them to function. Given their ubiquity, is it any wonder that the global industrial hose market is expected to grow at an annual rate of 6.9% and reach $24.3 billion by 2031?
So Where Does PIRTEK Fit in All of This?
We offer retail and on-site hydraulic and industrial hose maintenance and replacement services to industrial and contractor businesses worldwide. We’re the only major franchise of its kind, making our company a national and global leader in this market. Many people looking to buy a franchise don’t consider investing in PIRTEK because they assume they’d need a background in science or engineering. In reality, our franchisees come to us from various professional experiences, and many start with little to no understanding of hydraulics.
How Do Hydraulics Work?
Hydraulics is the branch of engineering that’s concerned with the mechanical properties of fluids. It is a sub-discipline of fluid power. The word comes from the Greek word for “water” and “power.”
Many industrial machines work by placing fluids under high pressure. Liquids do not compress, so, when a liquid, such as oil, is placed under pressure, it can exert a huge amount of force. This energy can be transferred into mechanical motion and is referred to as a hydraulic system.
The system relies on a liquid that is incompressible and does not evaporate. Incompressibility is crucial because it means the volume of the liquid stays constant. The pressure needed to operate a hydraulic system comes from the pump. The pump takes the fluid and forces it through hoses to turn something or generate power.
Hoses play a core function in this system by transmitting the fluid pressure between two or more points while providing the necessary resistance to overcome the fluid pressure. This resistance force is what allows the flow of fluid through the system.
