The amount of hydraulic fluid used by all branches of the military is significant both in terms of volume and cost. The disposal of used hydraulic fluid is a cost, time, and logistical component that can be greatly reduced by the purification and reuse of used hydraulic fluid. This report describes a project that evaluated the effectiveness of various hydraulic fluid purification process configurations on the removal of water and particulate contaminants from MIL-PRF-83282 hydraulic fluid in 55-gallon drums.
