Basic Hydraulic Jack System Schematic

Hydraulic Jack. In this system , a reservoir and a system of valves has been added to a simple hydraulic lever to stroke a small cylinder or pump continuously and raise a large piston or an actuator a notch with each stroke. The top view of within the diagram below shows an intake stroke. An outlet check valve closes by pressure under a load, and an inlet check valve opens so that liquid from the reservoir fills the pumping chamber. The lower view of the diagram shows the pump stroking downward. An inlet check valve closes by pressure and an outlet valve opens. More liquid is pumped under a large piston to raise it. To lower a load, a third valve (needle valve) opens, which opens an area under a large piston to the reservoir. The load then pushes the piston down and forces the liquid into the reservoir.
