Tip #1: Tribology - Assume All Hydraulic Components are Designed Equally

Believe it or not, maintenance begins during the design phase. 

Moving parts create friction, and friction can lead to wear, ending in premature failure, especially when tribology is ignored. In order to have a long-lasting hydraulic system, it is critical to specify operating conditions and environment during the project start. When all conditions are considered, it is possible to select the right component with the ideal tribological configuration for lasting component life.
