How Fluid Contamination Causes Mechanical Failure

When contaminants enter hydraulic fluid, they can cause the system to work against itself. The same pressure and force that generate a hydraulic system’s power may cause even tiny particles to damage interior surfaces through abrasion, erosion and fatigue. This damage can cascade and create additional harmful particles. In the worst-case scenario, the result is…
