Close Attention to Fluid Contamination Prevention
It’s a well-known fact that the vast majority of hydraulic component failures result from hydraulic fluid contamination. Common causes of fluid contamination include foreign matter, air, heat and water. Contaminants can find their way in through worn seals, leaky valves, faulty gaskets and defects in cylinder rods. Surprisingly, even brand-new hoses can contain dirt that introduces contaminants into the hydraulic system. Once inside, contaminants may lead to poor hydraulic pump performance, hasten component wear and tear, and cause pitting of internal component surfaces.
A cornerstone of our hydraulic service is timely fluid analysis. We offer S•O•SSM Fluid Analysis service for Cat machines that pinpoints hydraulic fluid health, determines the wear rate of internal hydraulic systems components, enables component repair or replacement prior to failure and more. Performing a fluid analysis approximately every 500 hours will go a long way toward ensuring peak hydraulic system performance and preventing premature component failure.
