|The KISS Principle IV
week we ended by noting heat build up is minimal as we use nearly all
of our input horsepower to perform a work function. Using power
to perform work does not appreciably add to system heat. Hydraulic oil
flow under pressure consumed as a leak through a worn pump or motor,
passing over a relief valve, pressure drop through hoses and fittings,
or through a compensator valve will add heat directly in proportion to
the pressure drop and flow loss inherent in the complete system.
addition to the efficient use of pressurized oil, a large hydraulic oil
sump is included in our systems. This allows for additional dwell time
in the sump which enhances natural cooling and dissipation of any air
entrained within the oil.
These and other design criteria allow
us to eliminate the need for an oil cooler, including its direct and
installation cost thereby reducing the price of the machine to our
Perhaps the most important reason is eliminating the
need for a machine owner to clean out a chaff/dirt filled oil cooler to
keep the oil cool. If the system stays cool naturally, you will not
experience a “cooked” hydraulic system that needs high cost replacement
How do you know if a hydraulic system is over heated. I have
observed operators say it is so hot I can’t touch it, and it may be
hot, but is it too hot. An old rule of thumb says that up to 15 Degrees
F. over ambient is acceptable. This equates to about 225 Degrees in
When you consider that 140/145 Degrees F. is scalding,
and will blister your skin, touching is probably not an accurate test
or a safe practice.
