Test systems were designed, and their construction was almost finished. Components include valves, sump, drive motor, torque reducer, and heat exchanger. The sump has a baffle plate on the inlet tube to prevent foam from entering the pump,p possibly causing cavitation. The inlet tube is perforated so that the flow 24 gpm at 2400 psi operation will give good mixing of contaminant with the hydraulic fluid without other agitation.
