This method differentiates the relative stability of hydraulic fluids in the presence of water under the conditions of the test. Hydrolytically unstable hydraulic fluids form acidic and insoluble contaminants which can cause hydraulic system malfunctions due to corrosion, valve sticking, or change in viscosity of the fluid. The degree of correlation between this test and service performance has not been fully determined.View Less
1.1 This test method covers the determination of the hydrolytic stability of petroleum or synthetic-base hydraulic fluids.
Note 1-Water-base or water-emulsion fluids can be evaluated by this test method but are run "as is." Additional water is not added to the 100-g sample.
1.2 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are provided for information only.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Specific hazard statements are given in 3.1, 6.1, 6.3, 6.4, and Annex A1.
