A hydraulic system contains and confines a liquid in such a way that it uses the laws governing liquids to transmit power and do work. This paper describes some basic systems and discusses components of a hydraulic system that store and condition the fluid. The oil reservoir (sump or tank) usually serves as a storehouse and a fluid conditioner. Filters, strainers and magnetic plugs condition the fluid by removing harmful impurities that could clog passages and damage parts. Heat exchanges or coolers often are used to keep the oil temperature within safe limits and prevent deterioration of the oil. Accumulators, though technically sources of stored energy, act as fluid storehouses.
