Options For Hydraulic Oil Temperature Control

High oil temperatures have many symptoms: slower machine speeds, sludge and varnish formation, and more leaks due to hardened O-rings. All these factors can do significant damage to hydraulic systems. The bottom line is that if the oil in your system is higher than 140 degrees, you are placing it at serious risk of failure. This article will outline the causes of high oil temperature, as well as some solutions to controlling it.
