‘Industrial Hydraulic Systems and Circuits Basic Level in the SI Units’ and ‘Industrial Hydraulics Basic Level in the English Units’ authored by Joji Parambath

Fluid power technology is expanding and as fascinating as ever. Fluid power systems provide the muscle power to run the machines with the smoothest control possibilities. Many professionals are designing, constructing, and maintaining pneumatic and hydraulic systems every day. Several budding engineers are initiated into the technology of fluid power now and then. Therefore, the spread of technological information on fluid power is essential for the advancement of fluid power technology.

A series of 32 concept-oriented books on Pneumatics and Hydraulics in paperback and eBook formats authored by Joji Parambath is published through Kindle Direct Publishers recently. The details of these books can be accessed from:


A brief about the following two books with similar contents, but with different units of measurements, are given here:

  •  Industrial Hydraulic Systems and Circuits Basic Level in the SI Units
  • Industrial Hydraulics Basic Level in the English Units

Book Description

The textbook deals with the components and circuits of hydraulic systems. The fundamentals required to understand the core topics are given initially. The book describes the topics on power packs, hydraulic actuators, and control valves, in detail. Next, the book also presents the maintenance, troubleshooting, and safety aspects in hydraulic systems. The first book uses the SI system of units and the second book uses the English system of units.


The chapters covered are as follows:

  • Industrial power systems
  • Hydraulic fundamentals
  • Hydraulic fluids – Functions, characteristics, & categories
  • Hydraulic fluid contamination & its control
  • Hydraulic filters
  • Hydraulic reservoirs
  • Hydraulic pumps
  • Cavitation
  • Pressure intensifier (Pressure booster)
  • Pressure regulators
  • Hydraulic cylinders
  • Hydraulic motors
  • Directional control valves and control circuits
  • Non-return Valves and Control Circuits
  • Flow control valves and circuits
  • Pressure control valves and control circuits
  • Hydraulic accumulators and circuits
  • Hydraulic seals
  • Fluid conductors
  • Hydraulic applications
  • Maintenance, troubleshooting, and safety of hydraulic systems
  • Appendix 1: Graphic Symbols for Hydraulic Components as per ISO 1219
  • Appendix 2: Unit Conversions
  • Appendix 3: Viscosity Grades and Viscosity Ranges as per ISO 3348 & Viscosity Comparison
  • Appendix 4: Important Standards for Hydraulic Systems
  • Appendix 5: Hydraulic Fluid Additives and Elements & Properties of Some Hydraulic Fluids
