Week 7/8 Poster Critique
Now for where I am at with my project. The test bed that I thought I would be working on this summer was the hydrostatic transmission for mid-sized wind turbines, however, I was given a project that was more maintenance based for hydraulics in general. I was told to do research on how to take an oil sample. With having just received a portable filtration cart, I can take a before and after sample of hydraulic oil to show the difference in ISO cleanliness levels. I have had little to do over the past few weeks, but I am now going lab to lab to inventory what machines they are using and what their maintenance practices are pertaining to the hydraulic oil. The oil samples I take will then be sent out to a lab for analysis.
