Handbook of hydraulic fluid technology, 2d ed.


Handbook of hydraulic fluid technology, 2d ed.

Ed. by George E. Totten and Victor J. De Negri.

CRC Press


966 pages




During the 10 years since the first edition was published, no other book has appeared that treats hydraulic fluids as a component of a hydraulic system, and addresses all the major aspects of hydraulic fluid technology. The revision is significant, with five of the 21 chapters completely rewritten. Engineers in academia and business consider such topics as seals and seal compatibility, controlling and managing particle contamination in hydraulic fluids, noise and vibration in fluid power systems, water-glycol hydraulic fluids, bio-based and biodegradable hydraulic oils, and food-grade hydraulic fluids.
