Abstract. The influence of water content in hydraulic fluids on their viscosity and temperature properties is considered. It is substantiated that a change in the viscosity of mineral oils with a change in water content can lead to both an increase in viscosity and a decrease in it. The results of an experimental determination of the viscosity of mineral oil mixed with a seawater simulator are presented. It is indicated that models of non-Newtonian fluids can be used to describe the behavior of the mixtures under consideration.

Keywords: coating, viscosity, hydraulic fluids, pumps, non-Newtonian fluids, emulsion
