Aerospace hydraulics has come a long way in recent years. Today, most aircraft use hydraulic systems for many of their critical components. Some of the vital components found in commercial, military aircraft, and space vehicles that are powered by hydraulics include cargo doors, nose wheel steering, spoilers, rudders, landing gear, flight controls, and flap/slat drives. Aerospace hydraulic systems are cost-effective, easy to maintain, and operate efficiently in even the most demanding in-flight conditions.
The aerospace industry’s safety guidelines specify that these hydraulic components also must go through demanding test parameters to ensure safety before these products are put in the air. Aerospace hydraulics component manufacturers must provide evidence that their products meet these testing requirements. PHC can provide the parts as well as manufacture complete HPUs and test systems to test the performance and endurance of these components.
Pneumatic and Hydraulic Company can provide solutions for the Aerospace Industry including pumps and valves that are compatible with ester fluids such as Skydrol and Hyjet in addition to other low viscosity, military, and commercial hydraulic fluids.
