Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why is an air breather necessary for a hydraulic reservoir?
A: The top of a reservoir is filled with air. If unfiltered, that air contains particulate contamination and possibly water molecules will enter the reservoir and settle in the remaining oil. The reservoir full of contaminated oil causes component failure resulting in unexpected, unnecessary, and preventable down time.
Q: Why is a fluid level monitoring device necessary?
A: Knowing the fluid level and condition of the fluid is critical in planning maintenance schedule to align with planned downtime. Knowing the low and high level marks of the fluid will help maintain enough fluid to keep the machine running properly, but not extra fluid which would incur excessive cost. Finally, with the availability of integrated thermometers, and acrylic sight tubes, personnel responsible for maintenance can visibly see the condition of the fluid relative to varnish build up and read the temperature from one location easily.
