Overview

By: M. Radhakrishnan

Hydraulic fluids are the most widely consumed of all industrial lubricants. This book covers a broad range of issues that are important to engineers concerned with the selection, application, and maintenance of hydraulic fluids used in industrial machinery.

The author provides a comprehensive and ready reference to various hydraulic fluid properties, such as biodegradability and fire resistance, as well as relevant hydraulic fluid test procedures.

Also discussed are re-refining, reclamation, and disposal issues pertaining to used hydraulic fluids. This book is unique in that it brings together material that is currently not available from a single source, in a concise and useful format.

A handy and useful guide for younger as well as more experienced practicing hydraulics and plant engineers, in addition to engineers in fluid power transmission and the mechanical engineering industries.
