Queensland Hydraulics offers an in-house design service for Hydraulic systems provided by an experienced, qualified and RPEQ certified engineering team.
Whether it be a hydraulic system, valve and gate actuation, hydraulic cylinders, or hydraulic manifolds Queensland Hydraulics’ concepts and designs remain focussed on quality, safety, and total cost of ownership for clients.
On all Hydraulic designs for clients we complete a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and engineering calculations report that details a cylinder’s stress points and confirm its suitability and sustainability to tasks it is undertaking.The flow velocity, flow rate, pressure rates and low flows head loss of our hydraulic designs are just a few elements that are calculated and tested in our reports, designed to produce better services for our customers.
Our engineering team is RPEQ certified and operates under our ISO 9001:2015 Quality Management System, as well as works to the following industry standards:
- AS 1100.201-1992 Technical Drawing Part 201: Mechanical engineering drawing
- AS 1101.1-2007. Drawings: Graphical Symbols for General Engineering – Part 1 Hydraulic & Pneumatic Systems
- AS 2671-2002 / ISO 4413:1998. Hydraulic fluid power – General requirements
- ISO 10100:2001. Cylinder acceptance testing
- AS 3990-1993. Mechanical equipment – Steelwork
We aim for and recommend a 4:1 safety rating factor on all of our hydraulic designs. This ensures solutions endure an extended working life with minimal ongoing maintenance. We are also able to design to satisfy specific client safety rating requirements.All developments that operate in the hydraulic design operation are analyzed to not only meet safety design standards of Australia, but to also protect our Australian land. Factors like trade waste, head losses, energy waste, and safe sewer pump processes are all analyzed to be in range and help our local council to protect our land.
Total Cost of Ownership:
An important aspect of our design is our commitment to providing clients with full turnkey solutions that incorporate quality components and materials. Our focus on quality and producing long lasting systems is a key consideration as it allows clients to assess the price of the asset, plus operating costs, to determine the long-term value and true cost of their asset.
