A feeling for fluids

As a design element, fluid requires particular attentiveness. Application-specific solutions relating to hydraulic and lubrication systems have long been our area of specialization.

Lubricant properties influence to a large extent the functionality of tribological systems. Fluid monitoring and corresponding fluid servicing are guarantees for the functionality, availability and service life of industrial systems in stationary and mobile hydraulics and lubrication technology.

At the Fluid Care Centre, a research and development centre which is unique world-wide, our team has a floor area of over 2400 m² at its disposal. Equipped with the most state-of-the-art laboratory and testing equipment, any filter performance tests and fluid analyses are possible.

Practically any application situation can be simulated.
