Cleaning and oil purification operations

The function of lubricating oils and control procedures

  • Transmits hydraulic energy

  • Separates the surfaces in relative motion from each other

  • Acts as a coolant

  • Protects surfaces from oxidising agents

The function of hydraulic fluids and contamination

We must consider that the pollution of hydraulic fluids is an unavoidable technical fact that can be minimised by resorting to monitoring activities and to the various oil filtration systems. Pollution caused by contamination interferes with the four main functions of hydraulic fluids stated above.

More specifically, there are three types of pollutants:

  • solids

  • liquids

  • gasses

Effects of pollution on oil

  • Gaseous contamination drastically accelerates the ageing of oil through the increase of its T.A.N. ‐ Total Acid Number, increasing its compressibility and reducing its viscosity.

  • In the same way, liquid contamination, favours the increase of the T.A.N. – Total Acid Number as well as its viscosity.

  • Instead, metal particles can act as catalysts for chemical reactions involving hydrocarbons and additives, thus varying the characteristics of the oil and giving rise to undesired reaction products.
