Most people are aware that harnessing the tremendous power of fluid in motion has been around for centuries, and even thousands of years. Literally thousands of years ago, water was used to turn huge wheels, and during all the time since then, it has evolved into a formalized system of fluid power, although today’s fluid systems are highly pressurized.
It didn’t take long for people to realize that water was not the best substance for driving motors and pumps, so a non-corrosive oil became the de facto standard. From there, it became a matter of developing hydraulic cylinders, mounting configurations, and better internal designs, all of which increase the effectiveness and productivity of the system.
A modern hydraulic system can generate more than 10 times the power of an electric motor, and this makes it ideally suited for applications that require heavy lifting, pulling, or pushing. It can also be precisely controlled, so all that power can be effectively harnessed and used to best advantage.
You might be surprised to learn how many pieces of machinery are actually driven by hydraulics systems, and the power supplied by these systems actually is essential for the smooth operation and the tremendous capabilities which the equipment has. Below are listed some examples of common, everyday types of equipment which rely on hydraulics to carry out their tasks, and remain very useful in their specific industries or niches.
If the cylinder fails on your heavy equipment, it can spell disaster which carries a significant amount of downtime with it. Fortunately, the experts at Sapphire Hydraulics have a great deal of experience and skill in repairing any kind of hydraulics cylinder failures, so that your machinery can get back online quickly. If necessary, your cylinder can be rebuilt and any replacement parts which are needed can be supplied from our inventory.

It’s not surprising that hoses occasionally require repair or replacement, given the fact that they are typically operating under tremendous pressure. All this pressure is transferred to the walls of the hose, and that can eventually cause a crack or a split which requires repair or replacement. When this happens to your hydraulics hoses, or if you have any problem with your fittings, you should contact us at Sapphire Hydraulics, so our skilled specialists can handle the problem for you. If replacement components are necessary, we’ll be able to get those to you promptly, so that minimal downtime is incurred.
