Water-Glycol Hydraulic Fluids: Conversion and Troubleshooting of Mineral Oil Hydraulic Systems 2000-01-2589

With increasing interest in more biodegradable and fire-resistant hydraulic fluids and with the availability of water-glycol hydraulic fluids suitable for high-pressure hydraulic pump operation, there is increasing interest in the conversion of mineral oil hydraulic systems to these alternative fluids. In this paper, the proper conversion procedures and troubleshooting of some common causes of hydraulic failures for the conversion of mineral oil hydraulic fluids to a water-glycol will be reviewed.
