4 Tips to Keep Your Hydraulic Equipment Operating Efficiently

If you work with hydraulic equipment it’s important to keep it operating efficiently. However, that is often easier said than done. Hydraulic equipment seems simple in nature, but there are many protocols to follow and steps that need to be taken to keep it working properly. Keep reading for four tips to keep your hydraulic equipment operating efficiently!

  1. Be sure that your hoses are rated for your operating pressure and temperatures.
  2. One of the most important things to keep your hydraulic system operating well is to ensure that the hoses you are using are rated for both the temperature and pressures that your system operates at. If your hose is not rated for the pressure and temperature that your hydraulic equipment operates at, your system may either malfunction or you will experience premature degradation of your hydraulic hoses.

  3. Check fluid levels and consistency regularly.
  4. It is also essential to check your fluid levels regularly. If your system is operating with subpar fluid levels, it will not work efficiently. In addition, you should also check the consistency of your fluid regularly. If your filters are clogged or the fluid isn’t as liquid as it should be, your system may experience issues and not work properly.

  5.  Replace filters as specified by the manufacturer’s directions.
  6. Filters are an important part of any hydraulic system. It’s important that you check and replace the filters as specified by the manufacturer’s directions. Failure to do so can create issues for your system as a clogged filter can increase the operating pressure of your equipment and may cause it to malfunction. As a tip, add a note on your calendar when you should replace the filter to ensure you don’t miss a day.

  7. Ensure valves and seals are rated for the chemicals they’ll come into contact with.
  8. Hydraulic valves are sensitive components because they are typically made of softer materials like rubber. You should always check to make sure that your hydraulic valve is compatible with the chemicals and fluids used in your hydraulic system to reduce the risk of failure.
