Selecting the Correct Hydraulic Component Material for Minimum Life Cycle Cost 922031

This paper discusses a procedure for selecting the correct material for a hydraulic component. The discussion includes the variables of pressure duty cycle, temperature duty cycle, component specifications, manufacturing processes, reliability requirements, and available materials. The goal of the procedure is to minimize component life cycle cost.
It is shown that 7075-T73 Aluminum is the best material for selected 34 MPa (5000 psi) hydraulic components.
