In our February issue, Paul Michael and Brian Blazel of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) offer some very helpful tips about controlling contamination before it has a chance to spread and become a big problem for the machinery where the hydrauilcs are employed. They are specifically addressing hydraulic equipment manufacturers who have the opportunity to check corrosive materials in advance.
They state that there are three common strategies for minimizing the impact of built-in contamination and they are: 1) Establish contamination limits for new components, 2) Verify that components comply with contamination limits, and 3) Flush the assembled system to achieve roll-off cleanliness target. This article is part of our quarterly MRO coverage in H&P magazine.
