Industrial lubricants play a pivotal role in maintaining and optimising the performance of industrial equipment. However, when it comes to hydraulic applications, hydraulic oils, also known as hydraulic fluids, stand out due to their multifunctional nature.

A multifaceted solution

Hydraulic oils go beyond the basic function of lubrication and protection against contaminants and corrosion. They serve as a medium for power transmission within hydraulic systems. Similar to how electrical cables transmit power, hydraulic oil transfers power from the hydraulic pump motor to the hydraulic ram through a control valve.

But that’s not all—hydraulic oil also plays a crucial role in cooling, sealing, and lubricating system components, ensuring the reliable operation of drivetrains and hydraulic systems. Efficient heat transfer and the expulsion of entrapped air are among the key functions of hydraulic lubricants.

In essence, a high-quality hydraulic oil should fulfil all these roles, optimising the performance of a hydraulic system. Taking it a step further, exceptional hydraulic oils can enhance efficiency and prolong the lifespan of equipment.
