Relativity Of Acid Number For Hydraulic Fluids

2020-02-14T06:37:35-05:00

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
