Hydraulic Fluid Overheating Problems: What are the Common Causes?

October 3rd, 2019

Non-industry customers are always surprised when they hear that hydraulic fluid can get too hot. Surely, the oil should cool itself, they say. That’s not necessarily true, unfortunately. Hydraulic fluid overheating issues exist, that’s a proven fact. Moving on from this self-evident conclusion, the real question is what causes the thermal saturation. What’s the origin, […]

The Importance of Topnotch Pump Design to Avoid Clogging Issues

September 25th, 2019

Human hearts can develop clogs. Recognized as possibly the finest pumps in existence, even these long-lasting biological machines run into trouble when fatty deposits block oxygenated blood supplies. How, then, can a hydraulic pump hope to avoid clogging? Well, unlike the human heart, design engineers can alter a hydraulic pump’s architecture so that it won’t […]

Why Original Spares and Right Hydraulic Fittings are Essential

September 5th, 2019

The hydraulics industry has undergone a complete transformation over the last two decades. Once full of unwieldy machine parts, the components are compact, yet they’re at least as powerful as ever. Performance-enhanced, they specify longer lifespans, too. In a nutshell, the mobile hydraulics sector is thriving. That happy state-of-affairs only takes a nosedive when substandard […]

Dry Running Pumps: What is it and Why is it Harmful?

August 18th, 2019

Hydraulic oils transmit and amplify actuator-controlled forces. They deliver those kinetic energies to mobile vehicle pistons and crane booms. In addition to that principal function, the fluid also cools and lubricates the fast-moving machine assemblies inside a hydraulic system. Hydraulic pumps, because they’re participants in this balanced fluid conveyance process, should never run dry. Regrettably, […]

Criteria for Hydraulic Filter Selection

August 4th, 2019

When choosing a hydraulic filter, the fluid sieving architecture is expected to satisfy a long list of performance requirements. There’s a brief pause while product parameters are pored over. With all possible selection criteria reservations finally settled, the contamination blocking component is installed. Two separate system stages have been reviewed during this process. First came […]
