OEM Recommended Oil Cleanliness Levels

Oil is the central component of any hydraulic system, making it one of the most critical products you put into your equipment. And often enough, the most common cause of system failure is contamination. Therefore, it is extremely important to understand contamination control, the importance of using clean oil and following OEM recommendations.

We’ve talked a lot about the importance of using clean oil in past blogs, so now we wanted to take the time to not only talk about cleanliness but to provide OEM recommended oil cleanliness levels by application.

Often, you get the recommended levels from the supplier but not directly from the OEM. Rexroth, a leading OEM of hydraulic components, has put out a full report on the topic. Take it from them: cleanliness matters! Click here for a summary of their cleanliness recommendations, or here to review the full report.
