The Effects of Contamination on Hydraulic Components
In hydraulic systems, solid contamination is known to be the primary factor in malfunction, failure, and early deterioration. It cannot be completely removed, but it can be effectively managed with the necessary equipment.
Surface damage and component wear are the most common effects of solid contamination.
● SURFACES ABRASION
Causes of mechanical seal leakage, system performance degradation, and failures.
● EROSION OF THE SURFACE
Causes of mechanical seal leakage, system performance reduction, variation in control component adjustment, and failures
● MOVING PARTS ADHESION
Failure was caused by a lack of lubrication.
● FATIGUE-RELATED INJURIES
Breakdown causes and component failure.
Liquid contamination primarily affects lubrication performance and fluid surface protection.
● RAISES FLUID ACIDITY
Surface corrosion and premature fluid oxidation are the results of
● HIGH-TEMPERATURE GALVANIC COUPLE
The source of corrosion
EXTRA BENEFITS OF FREE WATER
● LUBRICANT PERFORMANCE DECLINE
Cause of increased solid contamination, metal corrosion, sludge, and rust formation.
● CREATION OF A BATTERY COLONY
The source of the deterioration in the filterability feature
● CREATION OF ICE AT LOW TEMPERATURES
Result in surface damage
● ADMINISTRATIVE DEPLETION
Polar additives are retained by free water.
The main effect of gaseous contamination is a decrease in system performance.
● CUSHION SUPPORT
The source of the increased noise and cavitation.
● OXIDATION OF FLUID
The cause of metal corrosion acceleration.
● MODIFICATION OF FLUID PROPERTIES LIKE DENSITY, VISCOSITY, AND COMPRESSIBILITY MODULE
It is the root cause of the system’s decreased efficiency and control.
It is simple to see why a system with inadequate contamination control would have higher costs than one that is offered.
Costs associated with upkeep, replacement parts, and the machine stops
● EFFICIENCY AND ENERGY
Friction, drainage, and cavitation all lower efficiency and performance.
