High-pressure hydraulic systems (operating at pressures of 3500 psi or greater) are replacing mechanical systems with smaller and more reliable machines. This paper discusses the existing limitations of the technology of high-pressure hydraulics, as well as the advantages of systems working at pressures in the area of 5000 psi. An analysis is made of a hydraulic circuit and its components, including the reservoir, pump, valves, motor, cylinders, hoses, and fluid.
