Oil reservoirs

Oudshoorn hydraulics has a large assortment of oil tanks available from stock.

The tanks are made from different materials such as:

  • Aluminium oil reservoirs
  • Steel oil reservoirs
  • Polyplastic oil reservoirs
  • Stainless Steel oil reservoirs

The choice of the right oil reservoir is an important step to a reliable hydraulic system. When choosing an oil system take the following into account:

  • Necessary capacity needed to supply pump and other users
  • Another issue that is at least as important is the cooling capacity of the oil reservoir. When the oil circulates for long periods of time it can become quite hot. To cool the oil you should have an oil reservoir that has 3 to 5 times the capacity of the pump output per minute (this is a guideline, in practice and in different circumstances you can choose otherwise).

Oudshoorn hydraulics also offers the possibility of equipping tanks with a drip or leak tray, also tanks can be made according to customer specifications.
