In aviation, the dynamics of hydraulic engineering is not merely limited to the design and manufacture of an aircraft but also in the functioning of its various components and systems on the ground as well as in air. Thus whether taxiing on the runway or in a trajectory flight, the applications of this science in the form of cylinders, pumps, reservoirs, valves, flight and wing controls (ailerons, rudder and elevator) among others are most crucial.
Keeping in view the safety aspects, all these systems call for highest level of monitoring and preventive maintenance for their upkeep in the course of their operation and utilities. This is enabled by the hydraulic test stand as an important diagnostic and analytical medium to ascertain the worthiness of each component.
Also known as the test bench, it thoroughly tests the entire range of new, refurbished and even cannibalised parts and subassemblies. As such despite the advent of computers and automation based on assorted software for the ‘fly-by-wire’, there is an eternal demand for the services of hydraulic cartridge valves suppliers and test rigs, in India and around the world.
One of them is Dantal Hydraulics having its nodal office and unit at Manesar near Gurgaon in the Delhi NCR (national capital region) as well as Bangalore. This professional company’s customer oriented services for standard and custom-built systems for industrial and mobile applications have earned it numerous accolades at home and also abroad.
The consistency in the performance of its products has been ensured with the aid of its in-house Quality Assurance Laboratory and the feedback from the users including third party’s observations on the working of these systems.
This lab boasts of the latest instruments to ratify a system and these facilities include:
- Ultra Sonic Flaw & Crack Detector
