Hydraulics and Pneumatics Research Institute is structured on several research and development departments and laboratories, as follows:

  • Department of General Hydraulics

This department has specialists in general use hydraulic and pneumatic equipment (valves, directional control valves, throttles, regulators, cylinders, rotary motors and hydraulic and pneumatic driving installations). This department designs and develops presses and other devices used for environmental protection, extrication equipment as well as mechano-hydraulic systems for disabled persons.

This department coordinates the activity of four laboratories:
» LABORATORY of Tribology and Lubrication equipment (click for details)
» LABORATORY of Fluid Mechanics (click for details)
» LABORATORY of General Hydraulics (click for details)
» LABORATORY of Hydrostatic Transmissions with Energy Recovery (click for details)

  • Department of Servo Techniques, Electronics and Mechatronics

This department has specialists in servo valves, proportional hydraulics devices, control electronics devices, electro-hydraulic control systems and automation of the complex equipment that include hydraulic and pneumatic devices. By combining mechano-hydraulic equipment with electronic systems and software programs in control and adjustment of the process complex mechatronic systems can be created.

 This department coordinates the activity of three laboratories:
» LABORATORY of Mechatronic equipment and Robotics (click for details)
» LABORATORY of Electro-hydraulic control equipment (click for details)
» LABORATORY of Electronics equipment (click for details)

  • Department of Special Equipment

This department has engineers specialized in design, development and technical support for sealing equipment and devices, irrigation systems and equipment as well as in design of power generating systems through non-conventional methods.

This department coordinates the activity of three laboratories:
» LABORATORY of Sealing Systems (click for details)
» LABORATORY of Pneumatic Devices (click for details)
» LABORATORY of Environmental Protection (click for details)

 

  • Test laboratories

» TESTING LABORATORY of hydraulic equipment for high pressure (more details)
» TESTING LABORATORY of hydraulic equipment for high and medium pressure (more details)
» TESTING LABORATORY of lubrication system and equipment (more details)

The research laboratories of our institute are all grouped on a special work space built inside the building. In this work space, beside specialized stands, there are also general use stands where all kind of equipment running on oil or air can be tested. Our laboratories hold an adequate infrastructure: test stands, transducers adequate for our research field, data acquisition and data processing systems.
