Hydro Safe, Inc.

HYDRO SAFE, INC. markets bio-based products to industry and anyone needing environmentally friendly products. Hydro Safe® provides hydraulic oils, cleaners, lubricants, gear oils, chain and bar oils and other bio-based products. We have a proven track record for being around for 20 years and our oils have been used continuously in some equipment since 1996. Hydro Safe products use vegetable-based oils as base fluids that are made from a renewable resource. Hydro Safe`s product line was expanded to meet customer demand by adding Renewable products to our list of materials we can offer you, our valued customer. Hydro Safe® is a vegetable-based hydraulic fluid formulated to meet the growing demand for biodegradable hydraulic oils.

Hydro Safe®, Inc., incorporated in the State of Ohio, is a company dedicated to providing premium bio-based, non-toxic products. These include multiple oil grades to meet customer needs with such items as hydraulic oils in grades ISO VG-32, 46, and 68. The company, working with highly regarded scientists, formulated Hydro Safe® after careful and thorough research of the various applications in the targeted markets. The goal is to provide the best biodegradable, non-toxic products, and to market these products at very competitive prices.

Research showed that vegetable oils, such as canola (rapeseed), soy and other seeds provide the desired performance characteristics of lubricity, biodegradability, low toxicity, and the best oxidative stability. In all formulations Hydro Safe® provides exceptional lubricity for the purpose of extending the life expectancy of hydraulic component parts. There is an inherent advantage of vegetable oil over petroleum oil, with a Viscosity Index (VI Index), that is nearly double that of corresponding petroleum oil. Vegetable oils and specifically canola (rapeseed) oil viscosity is not as effected by oil temperature changes as its petroleum counterpart. This allows a more stable viscosity and subsequently, substantially improved stable equipment operation, less wear, increased energy efficiency and other qualities.

Hydro Safe® has met or exceeded all of the appropriate ASTM tests required for hydraulic fluids. One big advantage of Hydro Safe is its oxidative stability. For example, HS Premium VG-46 tested on the Rotary Bomb Oxidation for 360 minutes. This is some of the best test results in the industry. The longer the time the less the product has a tendency to degrade.

You will note Hydro Safe's compliance relative to applicable EPA requirements, etc., as listed on the Material Safety Data PDFs on this website.

Why should you switch to Hydro Safe Products?

Hydro Safe products are easy to use, can easily replace petroleum products, have a long service life (when properly applied), are biodegradable, environmentally friendly, have greater fire resistance than petroleum-based products and come from renewable materials. Also, Title 9 of the Farm Bill 'The BioPreferredSM' includes a biobased products preference program, which obliges all government agencies to purchase biobased products 'to the maximum extent practicable'.

Viscosity Index ASTM D-567, ASA Z11.45 is an empirical number indicating the rate of change in viscosity of an oil within a given temperature range. A low viscosity index signifies a relatively large change in viscosity with oil temperature, while a high viscosity index shows a relatively small change in viscosity with oil temperature changes, providing viscosity consistency and stability. Viscosity Index cannot be used to measure any other quality of an oil. Hydro Safe is formulated to provide a long life cycle as documented by the long Bomb Life, as indicated below. Hydro Safe fluid is totally biodegradable, and exceeds the government criteria of being 'readily biodegradable'. Readily biodegradable is defined as an attribute of products that have a natural ability to biodegrade quickly and completely. When Hydro Safe is leaked onto the ground, it has the ability of substance to be digested or consumed by naturally occurring microorganisms present in water, air and soil systems. Complete biodegradability is the conversion of a substance to carbon dioxide and water.

Hydro Safe ISO VG-46 FR and VG-68 FR are fire resistive fluids. The super high viscosity index of the HOBS naturally improves the thermal shear stability of the formula and load capacity. The HOBS's extremely low volatility increases the flash and fire safety features in these formulas and they can be listed by Factory Mutual as less hazardous fluids.

Installations include hydraulic elevators; dock levelers; hydraulic fork lift trucks; mobile cranes; railroad hydraulic uses; amusement park rides; yachts; barges; ships for power steering, bow thrusters, windlass anchors; and hydraulically operated locks, heavy movable structures, hydraulic bridges, and other applications where environmental considerations are important.

Our products have a proven track record having been in the market for over 20 years. Hydro Safe products can replace many petroleum products with Ultimately (Readily) biodegradable and renewable products that help protect the environment and lead to sustainability. Hydro Safe® offers excellent antiwear performance in a wide array of hydraulic applications and can be used as a superior replacement for conventional petroleum oil.
