Whitepaper: How to Choose a Hydraulic Oil

Just because a machine will run with a particular lubricating oil doesn’t mean that it’s the best selection for that application. In most cases, using a less-than-optimal lubricant doesn’t mean that your machine will experience a sudden and catastrophic failure. Instead, it will shorten the average life of the machine components, decreasing their efficiency over time. In this case, it is not uncommon for warning signs to go unnoticed.
