This work reflects the job of the author in touching literally all highlights of the hydraulic fluids. It is quite compact but very comprehensive publication well worth having. The author did not go deep into any rheological or tribological diatribes in order to keep the content of his book easy to follow for all categories of readers. As a result, the volume will provide a solid technical overview presented in a very plain language with no dwelling on theories and complex formulas. The author has provided an excellent review of the developments in the field of hydraulic fluids, offers required guidance on all suitable maintenance procedures, and discusses the correct applications and selection of the subject fluids, investigating their chemical/physical properties relating to the operational requirements. The book provides the technical information and data that will be very useful for both students and specialists who are directly involved with hydraulics, concerned with both mechanical components, design of the systems, proper selection and maintenance of the hydraulic fluids. The content of this reference text was built on the basis of the forty-year practical experience of the author, bringing together exceptionally comprehensive coverage of selection and behavior of the fluids. It also includes a complete technical analysis of the latest advances in synthetic oils...
