This document contains procedure guidelines for the conversion from both water free and water based hydraulic fluids to QUINTOLUBRIC® 888.
One of the main considerations when choosing a hydraulic fluid, is it’s compatibility with seals. More specifically it’s compatibility with Nitrile Butadiene Rubber (NBR) seals. NBR is the most cost effective and commonly used seal type in hydraulic systems. This elastomer found in various hydraulic unit applications.
In today’s world, longwall mining faces considerable challenges. The difference between a productive operation and an inefficient one often boils down to the right combination of people and products. For over 30 years, Quaker Chemical has continued to challenge the status quo for fire-resistant fluids used in some of the largest hydraulic cylinders in the world: longwall mining machinery.

Most component failures are the direct result of contaminated hydraulic oil, and the expense of having to replace hydraulic components damaged by contamination is often eclipsed by the even higher cost of unscheduled downtime for the machine. Learn how hydraulic fluid cleanliness can be measured using several techniques and reporting methods.
One of the most difficult but important jobs in hydraulic fluid maintenance is taking a proper and representative sample. For properties like acidity, viscosity and moisture it generally doesn’t matter where the sample is taken. However, when it comes to determining the cleanliness of a hydraulic fluid, it makes a big difference at what location the sample is taken.
The total acid number (TAN) is an analytical test to determine the deterioration of lubricants in service due to oxidation. As a fluid degrades with oxidation, the viscosity increases as well as the levels of corrosive acids, soot and varnish, along with the danger of component failure.
Quaker participates in the Illinois Mining Institute Annual meeting via a technical presentation given by Jon Brown, Marketing Manager Mining on Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluids. The presentation includes an overview of the different types of fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, and the benefits of choosing a fire-resistant hydraulic fluid over a mineral oil based one.
One of the most important functions for the maintenance of a hydraulic system is proper filtration. Most component failures are the direct result of contaminated hydraulic oil, and the expense of having to replace hydraulic components damaged by contamination is often eclipsed by the even higher cost of unscheduled downtime for the machine.
Review how a comprehensive filtration program can be tailored to meet the needs of any fluid and will fit all operational environments, and how hydraulic fluid filtration offers equipment owners and users an opportunity to extend component life, increase production time, and reduce costs
