Selection of Hydraulic Fluids for a Complex Equipment Fleet 710737

The widespread use of hydraulically operated systems in mobile work and transport equipment has increased the need for careful evaluation by the user of available hydraulic fluids. This evaluation has helped to reduce the number of different products recommended by the equipment manufacturers to a number that is reasonable for field use. Extensive laboratory testing and field experience by Ontario Hydro has shown that two basic oil types Dexron® ATF and Mil-H-5606B low-temperature aircraft hydraulic fluid, will meet more than 90% of hydraulic requirements of a large diversified fleet operating at temperatures as low as -45 F.
