 Within the hydraulic industry there are certain buzz words that are spoken regarding Hydraulic fluid cleanliness. Before we can talk about Hydraulic oil cleanliness, let us try to picture how small a “micron” really is.Now we can see how small a micron is relative to a human hair, ISO (International Organisation for Standardisation) have conducted a controlled experiment to measure how clean our hydraulic oil really is. The ISO Code is used to display contamination levels per m...
