Degradation Limits of MIL-H-5606, MIL-H-6083 Hydraulic Fluid
It is the purpose of this information report to discuss the causes and effects and recommend toleration limits for the degradation of MIL-H -5606 Hydraulic Fluid. The degradation of the fluid stems from two basic causes, the usage of the fluid in a hydraulic system and the presence of contaminants in the fluid.
There are two basic effects on the fluid characteristics and other minor effects which are largely associated with the usage and functional operation of the fluid in a hydraulic system, but may also be caused by contamination. The presence of contaminants in the system can arise from contaminating materials which are alreadu in the fluid when it is introduced into the system or added to the system as a result of servicing operations or as a result of wear or breakdown effects on the materiels of system construction.
