What’s a hydraulic motor?

Hydraulic technology uses pressurized fluid to power machines, including cars, and is a greener alternative to traditional engines. While not yet used in car engines, hydraulic parts can assist combustion engines and create powerful force through small tubes. Key components include hydraulic pumps, cylinders, and motors. Hydraulic cylinders may one day lead to the creation of a hydraulic motor for automobiles.

A hydraulic motor is any motor powered by pressurized fluid, commonly known as hydraulic fluid. Hydraulic technology provides a greener way to power everything from cars to heavy machinery through the use of liquids. The hydraulic motor is a similar idea to the popular electric powered car concept, with the exception that a hydraulic motor would use fluid instead of electricity to drive it.

Today’s technology has not yet created a working hydraulic car engine, and modern internal combustion engines still run on gasoline or diesel. The liquid is pumped out and an explosion ignites it to create power. A cleaner and more renewable resource comes from hydro. This type of engine would use pressurized fluid to move cylinders and other parts of the car. Hydraulics can create powerful force through a small tube, making it a key choice for creating efficient motors that produce large amounts of power while taking up little space and requiring no complicated systems or parts to run.

Today’s technology uses various hydraulic parts, such as motors and hydraulic cylinders, to power part of the machine they are on. Hydraulic hybrid cars are finding ways to use hydraulics to work together with the car’s engine and power different parts of the car. As technology advances, more parts can come out of the hydraulic fluid. While the engine itself still runs on gasoline or diesel, a combination of hydraulic parts help it out by doing some of the work and giving the engine a rest.

The key components of any hydraulic technology include a hydraulic pump, which is powered by the motor, hydraulic cylinders, and hydraulic motors. The hydraulic pump is used to pump hydraulic fluid to the areas that need it. Hydraulic motors fill with fluid and the force causes them to rotate, thus powering part of the machine.

Hydraulic cylinders play a special role in hydraulic technologies and may one day lead to the creation of a hydraulic motor for automobiles instead of a combination between hydraulic and combustion parts. The hydraulic cylinder is filled with pressurized fluid, forcing the inner piston to move upward. When the piston moves, it causes another part of the machine to move as well.

In today’s internal combustion engines, a small explosion causes the piston to move. In the hydraulic cylinder, fluid causes this movement and a valve opens to let fluid out while new fluid enters to start the process all over again. It does not require the explosion of an internal combustion engine and does not release pollutants into the environment like gasoline and diesel emissions do.
