When hydraulic fluid is controlled at an optimum operating temperature, the hydraulic system is characteristically more reliable, repeatable, etc. Hydraulic oil systems generally run at relatively high temperatures, i.e., over 100 degrees F, in order to reduce viscous losses (pressure drop). In general, hydraulic systems also tend to minimize flow rates by operating at high pressures.
