Just like us, hydraulic cylinders aren’t fond of weather that’s too hot or too cold. The weather can wreak serious havoc on the hydraulic cylinders if it’s not properly prepped for the season. Fluid viscosity and component materials can be compromised by temperature extremes within hydraulic systems. These extremes can cause performance issues and/or complete hydraulic system failure. While most hydraulic cylinders are engineered to withstand normal levels of heat loads, hydraulic fluid instability can also create operational issues that can affect the hydraulic system’s operating shelf…
