    Abstract

    In the design of hydraulic servo system filtration systems, the designer must be aware of the effects of contamination in a servo system. The tolerance level of a system will be affected by the physical characteristics of the servo components. The designer must take into consideration the critical clearances, type of force motor, and whether valve dither is used. When all the component facts are known, the proper filtration system can be designed to provide the required reliability and component life.
