The right way to perform maintenance on a hydraulic system utilizing the Maintenance Best Practices

Most companies spend a lot of money training their maintenance personnel to troubleshoot a hydraulic system. If we focused on preventing system failure then we could spend less time and money on troubleshooting a hydraulic system. We normally accept hydraulic system failure rather than deciding not to accept hydraulic failure as the norm. Let’s spend the time and money to eliminate hydraulic failure rather than preparing for failure. I worked for Kendall Company in the 1980’s and we changed our focus from reactive to proactive maintenance on our hydraulic systems and thus eliminating unscheduled hydraulic failure. We will talk about the right way to perform maintenance on a hydraulic system utilizing the Maintenance Best Practices.
Lack of maintenance of hydraulic systems is the leading cause of component and system failure yet most maintenance personnel don’t understand proper maintenance techniques of a hydraulic system. The basic foundation to perform proper maintenance on a hydraulic system has two areas of concern. The first area is Preventive Maintenance which is key to the success of any maintenance program whether in hydraulics or any equipment which we need reliability. The second area is corrective maintenance, which in many cases can cause additional hydraulic component failure when it is not performed to standard.

Pa. Pipe Fittings Co. Ducks FCA Suit Over Customs Fraud

A Pennsylvania federal judge tossed a False Claims Act suit against Victaulic Co. on Thursday, ruling there wasn’t enough evidence supporting allegations the pipe fittings manufacturer filed false documents to dodge U.S. customs duties.
Customs Fraud Investigations LLC had alleged that Victaulic didn’t mark its foreign-made pipe fittings in an attempt to hide their origin and sell them for the higher price that U.S.-made pipe fittings command. CFI also claimed Victaulic falsified customs forms to avoid having to pay a 10 percent marking duty on the products.
