Stability of Hydraulic Fluid

Stability of Hydraulic Fluid: The stability of a hydraulic fluid is the most important property affecting service life. The properties of a hydraulic fluid can be expected to change with time. Factors that influence the changes include: mechanical stress and cavitation, which can break down the viscosity improvers and cause reduced viscosity; and oxidation and hydrolysis which cause chemical changes, formation of volatile components,  insoluble materials, and corrosive products. The types of additives used in a fluid must be selected carefully to reduce the potential damage due to chemical breakdown at high temperatures.
