There are many important considerations in selecting the right fluid for a hydraulic system. Viscosity, wear, and foaming are just a few of them.
In the May issue of Hydraulics & Pneu
matics, on pages 38 and 39, our Senior Associate Editor Mary Gannon has clearly explained some of these important considerations for proper hydraulic selection. Depending on the types of components used in the system and the demands of the application, the proper fluid selection is critical.
For even more information about hydraulic fluids, I invite you to visit our Hydraulic Fluids Technology Zone
on the H&P website. As always, our objective is to report on the entire hydraulic or pneumatic system and provide the engineering community all they need to know about fluid power.
