Businesses purchasing large amounts of hydraulic oil often receive bulk product deliveries into their storage assuming the oil is “good to go” which can be a serious mistake. Oil suppliers, in good faith, assume their suppliers deliver “clean” new oil. The purchaser must specify the cleanliness and moisture content levels acceptable and check those specifications at the time of receiving the delivery to insure the hydraulic oil being added to production equipment meets the ISO Cleanliness Standards required for dependable pump, valve and control systems. New oil is not clean oil. Rarely does hydraulic oil meet the minimum standard for use in machinery as delivered. Dirt laden hydraulic oil destroys components long before manufacturer’s life cycle projections resulting in lost production, unplanned down time and increased production costs.
