The hydraulic system is mainly used to applications with high loads and angular vibration. It is used because a mechanical automatic tensioner cannot provide sufficient damping or tensioner movement. The hydraulic tensioners in general need more engine space.
The hydraulic tensioner system consists of a tensioner pulley in combination with hydraulic actuator. The movement of the piston rod of the actuator is transmitted to the tensioner pulley via an integrated or separate lever.
The hydraulic actuator is made to work like a shock absorber, where a spring in combination with the damping feature of the oil, will keep the wheel in contact with the rod.
A hydraulic actuator consists of these parts- an aluminum housing (Cylinder), the piston rod, the oil, the piston, the air, the spring, the one way valve, the retaining pin.
Hydraulic Belt Tensioner Market: Drivers and Restraints
The prime factor boosting the production of cockpit modules is the implementation in vehicles by OEMs. Increase in the sales of vehicles has directly contributed to the hydraulic tensioner market.
Because the hydraulic tensioner can operate with larger range of dynamic belt lengths than a mechanical tensioner and due to the length of stroke of the actuator and the lever design. After a certain period of time, oil leaks can occur due to a leaking seal which can suffer from any kind of contamination.
Even the smallest of small leak in the actuator can lead to incorrect damping as a result. a result of the constant motion of the parts in the system, components will wear out over time.
If the system is not maintained and components replaced at regular maintenance intervals, there is a high risk of component failure as well as catastrophic engine damage.
