MNE Hydraulic System Design

Designing a hydraulic system involves careful planning and consideration of various components to create a system that meets specific performance requirements of our customers and safety standards. 

Here are the key steps and factors MNE consider when we are designing a hydraulic system:

Define System Requirements:

  • Determine the purpose of the hydraulic system. What tasks or functions does it need to perform?
  • Establish performance requirements, including pressure, flow rate, and temperature conditions.
  • Consider safety and environmental regulations that apply to your industry.

Select Fluid:

  • Choose the hydraulic fluid (hydraulic oil) that suits your application and operating conditions. Factors to consider include viscosity, temperature range, and compatibility with system components.

Component Selection:

  • Select hydraulic components such as pumps, valves, actuators (cylinders or motors), reservoirs, filters, hoses, and fittings. Ensure they are compatible with your fluid choice and meet your performance requirements.
  • Consider the type of valves needed for control (directional control valves, pressure relief valves, etc.).

System Layout and Sizing:

  • Design the layout of the hydraulic system, considering the physical space, accessibility, and safety.
  • Calculate the necessary sizes for components based on flow rates, pressure requirements, and load specifications.
  • Determine the optimal placement of components for efficient operation.

Fluid Filtration:

  • Include filtration systems to remove contaminants from the hydraulic fluid, preventing damage to sensitive components.
  • Specify the type and micron rating of filters based on system requirements.

Safety Measures:

  • Incorporate safety features such as pressure relief valves, emergency stop controls, and protective enclosures to ensure safe operation.

Sealing and Leak Prevention:

  • Choose appropriate seals and gaskets to prevent leaks. Consider the type of seals required for specific components like cylinders and pumps.

Heat Management:

  • Implement cooling systems, if necessary, to manage heat generated during operation, which can affect fluid viscosity and component longevity.

Control System:

  • Design the control system, which may involve selecting hydraulic control valves and electronic or manual controls.
  • Consider automation options for precise control and monitoring.

Testing and Prototyping:

  • Before finalizing the design, create a prototype or conduct simulations to ensure the system meets performance requirements and functions as intended.


  • Create detailed schematics, drawings, and documentation of the hydraulic system design for reference, maintenance, and troubleshooting.

Installation and Maintenance:

  • Follow industry best practices during installation, including proper torque settings, fluid flushing, and testing.
  • Establish a maintenance schedule to regularly inspect, service, and replace components as needed.


  • Ensure that personnel operating and maintaining the hydraulic system receive proper training and safety instructions.

Compliance and Standards:

  • Ensure that the hydraulic system design complies with industry standards, safety regulations, and environmental requirements.

Performance Monitoring:

  • Implement monitoring systems to track system performance and detect issues early.
