Once your hydraulic oil is in the system, no matter what type it is, you MUST keep it CLEAN!
ISO 4406 Cleanliness Codes
Oil cleanliness is measured by an international standard: ISO 4660 followed by 3 numbers in sequence. These numbers are coded. For example ISO 4660 Code 24/21/18 which is typically the cleanliness of new oil straight out of a drum, shown on the slide below.
