Troubleshooting Common Hydraulic Problems
Common problems related to hydraulic systems include:
Overheated fluid: When oil temperatures are too high, the seals can be damaged, and the fluid may start to degrade. This can be caused by anything that reduces the system’s capacity to dissipate heat or that increases its heat load. Make sure there are no airflow obstructions around the reservoir, such as dirt or debris. Another cause of increased fluid temperature is often insufficient oil in the system. Internal leakage of the pump, valve, or actuators may be responsible. The solution is to repair or replace the hydraulic components.
Abnormal noise: Abnormal noise is often caused by aeration or cavitation. Aeration occurs when air contaminates the hydraulic fluid and cause an alarming banging or knocking noise as it circulates through the system. Make sure pump intake lines are in good condition and all clamps and fittings are tight.
Cavitation occurs when the volume of fluid demanded by any part of a hydraulic circuit exceeds the volume of fluid that is supplied. Cavitation causes metal erosion, which damages hydraulic components and contaminates the fluid. This is commonly caused at the pump. A clogged inlet intake line will cause the fluid in the line to vaporize. If the pump has an inlet strainer or filter, it should not become clogged and any gate-type isolation valve must be fully open.
Reduction in performance: A loss of speed indicates a loss of flow, and this may be the first indication there is something wrong with your hydraulic system. It can manifest itself in longer cycle times or slow operation. External leakage could be caused by a burst hose; replace the hose. A clogged or dirty filter can be a reason for slow and sometimes unpredictable operation; drain the oil and replace the filter to resolve the problem. Internal leakage is more difficult to detect and can occur in the pump, valves, or actuators,
In order to maintain your hydraulic system so that it functions smoothly and lasts longer, set up and stick to a plan of regular maintenance. This will also reveal possible problems before they cause more damage.
