Predictive maintenance in hydraulic systems proves cheaper in the long run

20 August, 2019

The operation of hydraulic systems is clearly critical, regardless of whether they function for 10 minutes every few weeks, or 24/7. Achieving an uptime utopia, however, depends largely on the successful implementation of an optimised maintenance strategy. In the hydraulics arena, many different maintenance strategies can be found, including those based on breakdown, preventative, predictive and proactive approaches. Today, there is a growing trend in support of a predictive maintenance approach, the explanation for which is outlined in a new white paper written by independent industry expert Steve Skinner in association with Webtec.
