The components in an Electro-hydraulic control (EHC) system are very sensitive to particulate contamination due to very tight tolerances in these components. One of the most critical safeguards for protecting an EHC system is the use of specialized synthetic hydraulic fluids. These fluids are made to withstand higher operating temperatures and are also more resistant to fire. Additionally, these fluids tend to absorb water, which must be controlled. This water contamination creates acid formation that will cause corrosion throughout your system.
Engineers seeking to safeguard their systems turn to Kaydon Filtration for our expertise in filtration and vacuum dehydration for these specialty fluids.
