  • Oil Sampling & ISO Cleanliness Levels

    Blog tags:

    Rather like the human body, hydraulic systems need regular check ups to test for contamination, whether that may be particulate build up caused by oil degradation or high levels of water found in the system.

    Steps to take an oil sample:
    1. Ensure the machine is either shut down or just started to operate. This way any contamination in the fluid can be captured
    2. Remove cap or cover to get to the tank
    3. Insert the correct outlet hose and collect roughly 100ml of oil
