Ensuring Fitting Performance

Today we are sharing with you the results of some recent hydrostatic burst testing performed at our Cleveland manufacturing facility. The takeaway from this test is that the Brennan fittings held strong well beyond the burst pressure of the tubing, in fact, 4 times higher than the burst pressure up to a remarkable 20,000 PSI when the tubing iteself failed (at about 1:40 in the video).

Controlling Hydraulic Fluid Contamination

Hydraulic fluid acts as the lubricant between moving parts and often provides the necessary resistance in components.  Heavy equipment that is exposed to harsh and temperature fluctuating environments such as off-road earth moving equipment and farming equipment require regular monitoring of fluid contamination.  In an industrial plant, the machinery that encounters regular actuation or travel may also be subject to contaminates.
Hydraulic fluids are formulated with additives developed for the specific application.  These additives are typically made by companies who specialize in petroleum based materials.  Additive manufactures develop specialized additives made specifically for hydraulic oil for construction equipment.  The additives consist of chemical compounds that protect the base stock of natural mineral oil-based fluids.
