Explain why bleeding air out of a hydraulic system is so important

To determine

The importance of bleeding air out of a hydraulic system.

Explanation

Bleeding is a process performed by the hydraulic braking system to remove the air present in the hydraulic valves, ports and lines. When, evacuating this air, it is very important that fluids are non-compressible in nature as compared to gases which are compressible. If any amount of air is present in the hydraulic system, as the pressure increases, the air compresses due to its compressible nature. This compressed air reduces the amount of force transmitted by the fluid into the hydraulic system. Hence, it is necessary to bleed out the air from a hydraulic braking system.
