Leaking Hydraulic Cylinders Can Contaminate Hydraulic System

hydraulic system contamination

Know the effects of contamination on your heavy equipment, forklift or machinery's hydraulic system.

Hydraulic fluid contamination has the potential to damage your entire hydraulic system in two different ways.

1. Accelerating Hydraulic Component Wear
hydraulic system contamination tolerances
From 75 to 85 percent of all hydraulic pump, motor, cylinder and valve failures can be traced to fluid contamination. Due to the extremely small tolerances of today’s hydraulic systems, even particles that can not be seen by the naked eye can cause damage to your hydraulic system, leading to costly repairs.

2. Reducing Hydraulic System Efficiency

Machine productivity and efficient hydraulics go hand-in-hand. If a hydraulic system isn't performing at peak efficiency, it's robbing machine performance. Efficiency losses occur gradually, and can decrease productivity by as much as 16-20 percent before being detected by the operator. Over time, these "invisible" efficiency losses can also lead to increased fuel consumption.
