The hydro-motor is a rotary hydraulic motor that converts the energy of a liquid into rotation mechanical energy of solid bodies, using several pistons for this purpose.
Hydraulic motors convert the potential energy of the liquid into power and, given the mechanical characteristics it delivers to the energy, they can be of two types: with translation motion and rotational motion.
Hydro-motors are successfully used in:
- installations in the chemical or aerospace industries, regulating fluid flows when operating valves, flaps etc.;
- installations in the building materials industry, in the operation of belt feeders, endless screw feeders, for adjusting the quantities of liquid material;installations in the building materials industry, in the operation of belt feeders, endless screw feeders, for adjusting the quantities of liquid material;
- complex installations for the purpose of adjusting the direction or steering position on airplanes, boats, tracking systems;
- other installations in the machine-building industry or construction machinery.
Hydro-motors are preferred in the industry due to their advantages compared to electric motors:
- impressive powers for small loads;
- ease of use, torque limitation being ensured by pressure limitation;
- variable speeds due to the use of the flow limiter.
