The Impact of Temperature on Hydraulic Fluid

  • Viscosity Changes:Hydraulic fluid viscosity is affected by temperature changes. Higher temperatures decrease viscosity, reducing system efficiency. Lower temperatures increase viscosity, affecting flow rates and system responsiveness.
  • Fluid Degradation:Elevated temperatures can cause hydraulic fluid to degrade, leading to oxidation and thermal breakdown. This can compromise the fluid's performance, reduce lubrication effectiveness, and result in sludge and varnish formation.
  • Seal and Hose Issues:Extreme temperature impacts seals and hoses in hydraulic systems. High temperatures can cause seals to degrade and leak, potentially causing system failure. Extreme cold can make seals brittle, increasing the risk of damage.
