Contamination Causes Most Hydraulic Failures:
The experience of designers and users of hydraulic and lube oil systems has verified the following fact: over 75% of all system failures are a direct result of contamination!
The cost due to contamination is staggering, resulting from:
Functions of Hydraulic Fluid
Contamination interferes with the four functions of hydraulic fluids:
1. To act as an energy transmission medium.
2. To lubricate internal moving parts of components.
3. To act as a heat transfer medium.
4. To seal clearances between moving parts.
If any one of these functions is impaired, the hydraulic system will not perform as designed. The resulting downtime can easily cost a large manufacturing plant thousands of rupees per hour. Hydraulic fluid maintenance helps prevent or reduce unplanned downtime. This is accomplished
through a continuous improvement program that minimizes and removes contaminants.
Hydraulic fluid is expected to create a lubricating film to keep precision parts separated. Ideally, the film is thick enough to completely fill the clearance between moving parts. This condition results in low wear rates. When the wear rate is kept low enough, a component is likely to reach its intended life expectancy, which may be millions of pressurization cycles.
