A hydraulic system transfers force from one point to another point using an incompressible (hydraulic) fluid. To ensure that the fluid functions properly, it is crucial that it remains free of contaminants and particles. In fact, particle contamination is the single most common cause of hydraulic system failure. Dirt-laden fluids in any moving engine part may cause damage to the fine tolerances of valves, motors, and hydraulic systems.
Fluid analysis is essential to keep your hydraulic system operating efficiently and effectively. Considering 80% of all hydraulic system failures are caused by poor fluid condition, an effective fluid analysis program will help identify contamination and other problems not visible to the naked eye.
