Total Hydraulic Cost

Total Hydraulic Cost

Total Hydraulic Cost

Hi All! I am trying to create a equation for Total Hydraulic Operating Cost. What would be the parameters for such a equation? I am trying to convince people to use a superior(but more expensive) hydraulic fluid that would reduce heat, increase safety, and increase output power. But the bean counters are hard to convince!
So the Equation would be THOC=Hydraulic Fluid Cost + ?????

RE: Total Hydraulic Cost

What makes the hydraulic fluid superior? Why is it more expensive? Why is heat costing you money? How will your superior fluid increase power output? Is current output power too low? Why?
For those who keep the books, your final has to show the money. What is the current cost of operation? What does it include?


RE: Total Hydraulic Cost

How does it reduce heat? And how does it increase safety?

I would think that the financial benefits of increasing output power would be pretty easy to calculate, though.

Engineering is not the science behind building. It is the science behind not building.

RE: Total Hydraulic Cost

Please tell us the brand and type of this superior oil, maybe someone has experience with it.
