Airplane manufacturers depend on hundreds of suppliers for quality aircraft accessories, but so do customers who want to repair those planes. Alaris Aerospace Systems provides professional aircraft accessories to get you back in the air as soon as possible! Whether you want pneumatic, hydraulic, or electrical pumps, heat exchangers, or actuators, we have the mechanical and electro-mechanical parts you need to repair your aircraft quickly and easily.
What Is a Hydraulic Power System?
In an aircraft, hydraulic systems operate everything from flaps and flight control surfaces to landing gear and brakes. While small aircraft may only require fluid for manual operation of the wheel brakes, large planes have more complex systems, often with several subsystems, that include pumps, accumulators, filtering systems, heat exchangers, and more. The operating pressure varies from a couple hundred pounds per square inch in small planes to 5,000 pounds per square inch in large transport aircraft.
What Is a Pneumatic Power System?
Older aircraft may use a high-pressure pneumatic system up to 3,000 pounds per square inch. While these systems operate much like a hydraulic system, they use air instead of liquid for transmitting power. They are used for opening and closing doors, driving hydraulic pumps, starters, alternators, injection pumps, and brake and emergency device operation. Pneumatic and hydraulic systems are similar and both use confined fluids, but pneumatic units don’t use reservoirs, accumulators, hand pumps, regulators, or electrically or engine-driven power pumps to build normal pressure. Many aircraft utilize a high-pressure pneumatic source of backup power to actuate the brakes or extend the landing gear if the main hydraulic braking system fails. In this case, the nitrogen moves the hydraulic fluid to the actuator instead of directly actuating the landing gear or brake units.
