Hydraulic Fluids: A Guide to Selection, Test Methods, and Use is a recent book release from ASME Press. It explores a broad range of hydraulic fluid concerns, from selection to maintenance and disposal. The book is geared toward engineers responsible for the selection, application, and maintenance of hydraulic fluids used in industrial machinery, and helps demystify the subject for mechanical engineers with little expertise in the chemistry of fluids.

The book features detailed coverage of various hydraulic fluid properties, such as biodegradability and fire resistance, as well as relevant hydraulic fluid test procedures. Author M. Radhakrishnan provides ready access to both essential data and general guidelines.
