What is the Right Setting for My Oil Temperature Switch?

Hydraulic Temperature
Hydraulic fluid is the lifeblood of any hydraulic system, and is responsible for power transmission, lubrication and heat transfer. Due to component and design efficiencies, as well as external factors, oil temperature can increase and reach a point outside of optimum operating range. This can result in decreased system performance, increased maintenance and damaged components. [...] Continue reading »

Hydraulic Hose: Be Proactive, Not Reactive

Hydraulic Hose
Avoiding hydraulic hose assembly failure should be the number one directive for any process or application that uses hydraulic hoses. All hydraulic hoses will eventually fail. When they fail suddenly, they lead to increased labor and material costs, downtime and potential operator injuries. Even through proactive hose assembly replacement is the most cost-effective method for [...] Continue reading »

Why You Cannot use Camlock Fittings for Steam Applications

Why You Cannot Use Camlock Fittings for Steam Applications
While camlock fittings make for quick and easy connections for low-pressure fluid transfer, these types of connections are dangerous for both operators and machines when used in steam applications. As a result, camlock fittings should never be used for steam applications. Liquid dynamics and the ability to vary boiling points by increasing temperature and pressure within [...] Continue reading »
