Hydro Safe - Model VG-46FR and 68FR - Hydraulic Fluid
Hydro Safe Hydraulic Fluids are ultimately biodegradable1 vegetable based formulas that meet and exceed Vickers M2950-S, Vickers 1-286-5, U.S. Steel 126, U.S. Steel 127, and U.S. Steel 136. They have been USDA Biobased tested to show new carbon (vegetable oil) at > 96% and they are Specially formulated to offer the lowest toxicity in aquatic conditions. They are an excellent choice for inner plant applications (ie. Steel Mills) as fire resistant (FR) hydraulic fluids, with exceptional oxidation stability (RBOT 350-400 minutes) exceeding US Steel minimum requirement of 120 minutes. Although they have a pour point of -25°C and -30°C, care must be taken if used in hydraulic systems setting static below -10°C for extended periods.
Hydro Safe® Hydraulic Fluids are formulated to perform in hydraulic systems that require Anti-Wear, Anti-Rust, and Anti-Oxidation properties. There anti-wear performance exceeds the requirements for Vickers 35VQ-25 and V-104C (ASTM D-2882) vane pump stand tests, and DIN 51524 Part 2 load stage 10. They also meet the requirements for ashless GL-3 gear oils in reduction units and gear sets where they meet the viscosity ranges. They are highly inhibited against moisture and rusting in both fresh and sea water and pass both A and B Sequences of the ASTM D-665 Turbine Oil Rust Test. Incorporating the super high viscosity index of the Stabilized* High Oleic Base Stocks (HOBS) into the formulas, gives multi-grade synthetic base oils performance by boosting the viscosity index to synthetic levels (Energy Conserving Formulas) A zinc-free additive system has also been developed that is environmentally friendly and meets or exceeds pump requirements.
The super high viscosity index of the HOBS naturally improves the thermal shear stability of the formulas and their load capacity. The HOBS’s extremely low volatility increases the flash and fire safety features in these formulas. (Can be listed by Factory Mutual as less hazardous fluids).
Hydro Safe® Hydraulic vegetable based fluids should be used where improved oxidation stability, excellent anti-wear performance, low toxicity, and BIODEGRADABILITY properties are required.
