Overheating is a frequent problem within hydraulic systems that may be determined by specific components. This internal problem lies within the pump and causes a hydraulic system to overheat in the following ways:
Contaminated Hydraulic Fluid is a common cause for a Hydraulic system to overheat. This can occur when the container is not sealed properly which causes dust, dirt, debris, or moisture to contaminate the fluid. With hydraulic systems running at higher pressures and more efficiently than ever before, it is important to monitor the cleanliness of one’s hydraulic fluid. Reducing contamination can decrease damage and will allow one to get the most out of their equipment.
