Virtually all aircraft make use of some hydraulically powered components. In light, general aviation aircraft, this use might be limited to providing pressure to activate the wheel brakes. In larger and more complex aeroplanes, the use of hydraulically powered components is much more common.
Symbols based on ISO and 2. Try our FREE training on virtual test rigs here. Hydraulic symbols provide a clear representation of the function of each hydraulic component. Laying each symbol out on the page in the same sequence the components are used in the circuit allows people to understand the complete function of the hydraulic equipment. It would be nice to think that each type of valve had its own symbol and that all valves can be clearly defined, however, the international standard has been the focus of much discussion for many years and is something of a compromise.
The problem is that in the past manufacturers have often had subtle differences in the detail of their valve design, which, they'd all like to form part of the standard symbol. A relief valve, for example, may always have the same basic function but can be constructed in significantly different ways. As a hydraulics engineer, it's important to understand the difference between valves, even though this may not always be possible from the symbol.
For example knowing whether the valve uses a sealed poppet, spool element or both can make a big difference to the circuit operation; as can pilot feed or orifice positions etc. Try our virtual hydraulic equipment, test rig experiments here. The size represents the type of unit with a larger circle perhaps a pump, the middle size a gauge, and smallest size a roller.
Squares and rectangles form the basis of pressure and directional control valves. A single box for pressure control and multiple boxes directional control. The valve operator box is also rectangular. Diamond shape boxes indicate a fluid conditioning device e. Flow control elements are shown by back to back semi-circles viscosity dependent and arrow head Vs viscosity independent. The approach we recommend is generally to build your own larger symbols from the same basic elements whenever more detail is required.
If you learn the basics you should be able to interpret all circuits provided you pay particular attention whenever the fine detail changes. Sometimes putting too much detail will confuse things so designers might leave it out. Often the manufacturers are not keen to disclose too much information on what is essentially their own unique IP that has probably taken them many years to develop.
Always be careful not to assume circuit drawings are correct. Circuits may be changed without the drawings being updated and some are just plain wrong. Use them as a master to work through the components in the actual circuit you are working on; checking the valves to the symbols as you go.

Hydraulic machines use liquid fluid power to perform work. Heavy construction vehicles are a common example. In this type of machine, hydraulic fluid is pumped to various hydraulic motors and hydraulic cylinders throughout the machine and becomes pressurized according to the resistance present. Hydraulic systems, like pneumatic systems , are based on Pascal's law which states that any pressure applied to a fluid inside a closed system will transmit that pressure equally everywhere and in all directions. A hydraulic system uses an in-compressible liquid as its fluid, rather than a compressible gas.

Hydraulics symbols are an essential component of hydraulic circuit diagrams. Knowing some of the basic principles will help understand a wider range of symbols. Explaining the common ISO symbols enables a complete hydraulic system to be followed:. Hydraulic pump produces flow.
Bs symbols pdf. The graphic symbols used for electrical components in circuit diagrams are covered by national and international standards, in particular: IEC also known as British Standard BS In electronic circuits, there are many electronic symbols that are used to represent or identify a basic electronic or electrical device. For examination from
Below are some common illustrations of equipment located on fluids circuit diagrams, followed by descriptions of the most common elements. Later in this article series we will describe some simple hydraulic and pneumatic circuits composed of these circuit elements. Needle valves are used to throttle or shut-off flow of fluids. They usually will vary flow with pressure or viscosity change. Gauges are used to measure the oil pressure at a given point in the system.
