Hydraulics describe the transfer of energy and signals through fluids; power is transferred to drive, control and move. Hydraulics fluids based on mineral oils, synthetic fluids and fire-resistant fluids are used in all types of machinery and equipment.
Modern hydraulics can be divided into three principle areas: stationary, mobile and aviation hydraulics. Each of these areas makes special demands on its components and the hydraulic medium. The performance of hydraulic systems has increased significantly, which is reflected in higher pressures, higher system temperatures and lower system volumes.
Hydraulic fluid developments are of enormous significance – optimum applications save energy, reduce maintenance intervals, reduce wear, increase machine life and thus enable worthwhile savings. Our commitment to R&D ensures we're able to provide hydraulic fluids based on the latest technology.
