Characteristics of a Good Hydraulic Fluid
Brown, F. Water is the obvious answer for a substitute to crude - fresh, sea or produced brine. This paper presents experimental work done on the development of additives to make water suitable for hydraulic pumping. Field testing and recent commercial applications have shown the numerous advantages, practicability and economy of using water as a power fluid. Fluid normally available for power is the produced crude which frequently lacks good lubricating properties, has too high a viscosity at times and contains sand, water, paraffin and other foreign materials. In the early days of hydraulic pumping, only the open system was available and there was an economic limit to improving the quality of the crude power fluid. Development of the free pump gave impetus to use of the parallel string.
Topics: Manufacturing. Viscosity is a measure of a hydraulic fluid's resistance to flow. It is a hydraulic fluid's most important characteristic and has a significant impact on the operation of the system. This leads to leakage and wear of parts. All hydraulic fluids must be able to retain optimum viscosity during operation in cold or hot temperatures, in order to consistently and effectively transmit power. Compressibility is a measure of the amount of volume reduction due to pressure.
A hydraulic fluid or hydraulic liquid is the medium by which power is transferred in hydraulic machinery. Common hydraulic fluids are based on mineral oil or water. Hydraulic systems like the ones mentioned above will work most efficiently if the hydraulic fluid used has zero compressibility. The primary function of a hydraulic fluid is to convey power. In use, however, there are other important functions of hydraulic fluid such as protection of the hydraulic machine components. The table below lists the major functions of a hydraulic fluid and the properties of a fluid that affect its ability to perform that function: .
Since the first use of water as a hydraulic medium in the late 18th century, hydraulics has become an indispensable discipline of engineering science. Enormous technological advances have been made in the intervening years, but this has not been reflected in the available literature on the numerous fluids involved. Based on 40 years of experience with Shell in Norway, this reference text brings together a comprehensive coverage of the behaviour and selection of hydraulic fluids. It includes a full analysis of recent advances in synthetic oils - media which will inevitably become more dominant as natural products become more scarce. Hydraulic Fluids provides an overview that both students and professionals involved with hydraulics, whether concerned with the mechanical components or system design or selection and maintenance of the fluids themselves, will refer to again and again as it provides relevant information on all the major hydraulic fluids in a single volume.

Virtually all aircraft make use of some hydraulically powered components. In light, general aviation aircraft, this use might be limited to providing pressure to activate the wheel brakes.
