Hydraulic fluids

When selecting a hydraulic fluid for a particular application a number of properties need to be considered. The most important of these properties is kinematic viscosity. This document contains practical information on hydraulic oil viscosity and bulk modulus, including a temperature/viscosity diagram for ISO hydraulic oils; and a formula for calculating compressibility of hydrocarbon-based hydraulic oils.
