HYDRAULIC OIL TESTING AND ANALYSIS

At Trident Hydraulics, we believe that the testing and analysis of oil samples for any hydraulic system should be conducted on a regular basis. Oil used in hydraulic systems is regularly overlooked as a potential failure, and the quality of the oil can be forgotten. Whether you are working with transmissions, gearboxes, differentials, or any kind of lubricated system where combustion is not involved, we are confident that we can help.

Why is oil analysis beneficial?

In hydraulic systems, oil analysis is beneficial for a number of reasons:

      • By conducting a thorough hydraulic oil analysis, high levels of aluminum could be revealed which can suggest failure with your converter or pump.
      • High levels of copper could indicate transmission slippage.
      • High chromium levels could suggest gear and bearing wear, or scored hydraulic cylinder rods.
      • Oil analysis can effectively determine the correct oil drain and filter change intervals in lubricated systems.
      • It’s important to have a sufficient level of cleanliness in all hydraulic oil systems. This is because there are close tolerances present in the pumps, control valves and between pistons and cylinder walls. Contamination through condensation moisture, dirt and dust is responsible for many hydraulic system failures.
      • Regular hydraulic oil testing and analysis will monitor contamination levels.
