Webtec launches hydraulic fluid power maintenance guide

26 February, 2019

Webtec, a global specialist manufacturer of hydraulic measurement and control products is launching ‘An Introduction to Practical Hydraulic System Maintenance', a new guide for all fluid power technicians.


Co-authored by industry experts Steve Skinner and Webtec's managing director Martin Cuthbert, the guide is intended to help educate technicians and engineers new to hydraulic fluid power maintenance and hydraulic engineers embarking on a career in this industry.

The book costing £34.99 is available now from Amazon. Featuring over 240 pages and over 200 colour illustrations this introductory guide is an excellent starting place to learn about hydraulics. Written in an easy-to-read style with clear concise text, it also suggests where readers can go to learn more about a particular subject.

Endorsements

‘An Introduction to Practical Hydraulic System Maintenance' has been reviewed and endorsed by several organisations including the British Fluid Power Association, Institution of Mechanical Engineers, National Fluid Power Centre, British Valve and Actuator Association and the Construction Equipment Association.

All profits made from the book will be donated to support STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) programmes such as the ‘Fluid Power Challenge' run by the charity Primary Engineer in the UK and set up to help encourage the next generation of engineers in schools.

Skinner commented: "Despite hydraulic fluid power being a technology with more than 200 years of history, it remains a highly effective means of transmitting power, well-suited to interface with modern electronic controls. Like any technology however, it needs to be well understood by engineers and technicians responsible for its efficient operation. Hopefully this book will encourage maintenance personnel to acquire further training and experience and become fully competent in this important technology with its vast range of applications.”

Cuthbert added: "We recognised that many highly experienced hydraulic engineers are retiring, while few people are studying hydraulics today as a profession and yet the need for qualified hydraulic technicians continues to grow. This book is a small step towards addressing this skills shortage.

"We are excited to launch this guide and encouraged by the support and recognition that the book has received from the many trade organisations and educational establishments globally.”

In addition to the guide, readers will also receive free access to fault-finding tools, calculation apps and white papers by Webtec.
