7 steps to hydraulic cleanliness

14.04.2021 | Hydroline

Manufacturing hydraulic cylinders requires specific processes to prevent a cylinder from contributing failure to other system components. It is a common scenario that microscopic solid particles can cause a component failure for machinery using hydraulic systems. According to industry experts, contamination causes approximately 60% to 90% of all hydraulic system failures. The malfunction may be intermittent and requires extensive troubleshooting to identify the faulty component.

How to design a hydraulic cylinder?

The hydraulic systems date back as far as over 4,000 years ago in Ancient Egypt. They initially applied the principles of fluid hydraulic to the complicated canal systems used in watering. Other civilizations, including the Greeks and Romans, used the same basic principles to develop water-powered structures and devices like the water clock and water wheels. Since then, the fluid power universe has become a little more complicated. Fluid power has been used for Centuries to create energy to generate movement and force.

The benefits derived from controlling contamination extend hydraulic fluids' service life. The hydraulic fluid plan aims to include more consistent hydraulic system performance, lower cost for fluid needed for replacement, less component wear, and reduced fluid disposal costs.
