Hydraulic Temperature Control


Operating temperatures consistently above 160°F promote chemical reactions that change the properties of the oil. Effects of high temperature are listed below: 1. Oxidation of the oil 2. Formation of insoluble gums, varnishes, and acids 3. Deterioration of seals (they harden and leakage begins) 4. Loss of lubricity 5. Changes in viscosity The gums and […]
