  Flushing Hydraulic Systems
The objective of flushing the fluid is to eliminate contaminants such as particles and water from the fluid.
The flushing rig is typically equipped with a pump that has a flow rate several times that of system's normal flow, directional valves, accumulators, fluid heater and chiller and of course, a bank of filters.
The directional valves enable the flushing direction to be changed, the accumulators enable pulsating flow conditions and the heater and chiller enable the fluid temperature to be increased or decreased, all of which can assist in the dislodgment of contaminants.
