The degrading of hydraulic oil

The hydraulic oil does not always last the same in every piece of equipment. It depends on the pressure, the operational temperature and the contamination. Here we have two examples of the same oil in the same plant. One is still in very good condition at 2000 hours, while the other was left til 4000 hours and used up the additives.

Both samples maintained their viscosity throughout.
