3 Methods to Prolong Die Life in High Pressure Die Casting


A key contributor to shortened die life is thermal fatigue. In high pressure die casting, production cycle times typically range from a few seconds to just over a minute. Within this span, the die cavity is being sprayed with die lubricant (the lubricant may be cold, cool, or hot,...

Relativity Of Acid Number For Hydraulic Fluids


TAN merely measures the corrosive acids present in the fluid, and will increase over time as an indication of the deterioration of the fluid. However, different lubricant technologies such as mineral oil-based or polyol-ester-based hydraulic fluids and different additive technologies result in different TAN values

Hydraulic Fluid Sampling Procedure And Particle Counting


For properties like acidity, viscosity and moisture it generally doesn’t matter where the sample is taken. However, when it comes to determining the cleanliness of a hydraulic fluid, it makes a big difference at what location the sample is taken.
