Oil Demulsibility and your Hydraulic System

Oil’s hygroscopic nature makes its attraction of water seem inevitable. But equally important is the oil in your system’s ability to release that water, otherwise known as demulsibility. Many environments, including food processing locations and steel and paper mills, contain high amounts of moisture which can expose systems and their oil to water.

Trends in Hydraulic Reservoir Design

A hydraulic system needs fluid for various reasons, and a hydraulic reservoir can hold enough fluid to provide for all of those needs. However, it also accomplishes several other tasks. Hydraulic reservoirs provide a large surface area over which to transfer heat in the fluid to the surrounding area. They also provide a physical barrier in the form of a baffle between a fluid that enters the suction line of the pump and that which enters the reservoir itself.
