Hydraulic Oil is a 10,000 plus hour rated premium long life hydraulic fluid. Through testing in the laboratory and in actual operation, the test results highlight that hydraulic oil will outperform conventional or traditional hydraulic oil up to 4 to 5 times longer. Also, Hydraulic Oil during long service life will protect and preserve seals and pressure hydraulic system components.
Over the last 10 years, surveys and studies have shown that conventional or traditional hydraulic oils leak more and cause more pump wear and system failure than transmission, gear, and engine oils put together. Why is this? Technically speaking, low grade hydraulic fluids use low quantities of additives such as anti-foam, anti-wear, plus low grade, low thermal stability base oils are formulated. This combination makes conventional or traditional hydraulic fluids inadequate and ineffective in protection seals, pumps, and other vital components. Hydraulic Oil was formulated with one goal in mind: to help the owner / operator in protecting their important hydraulic systems. Hydraulic Oil utilizes the absolute finest base stock oils along with the latest top tier additive chemistry in huge amounts. Hydraulic Oil is the industry best in providing long service and protection.
Thermal Stable Base Oils
Hydraulic systems and hydraulic fluids are often exposed to extreme conditions such as debris, moisture and water, high temperature, etc. When you combine these destructive issues, they can lead a conventional hydraulic oil to rapidly oxidize. When this happens, the oil starts to break down and produce harmful sludge, acids, and varnish. These contaminants will lead to a thick, sticky substance within the oil that can raise havoc in the hydraulic pumps, seals, and metal parts. Hydraulic Oil was designed to function and perform admirably in the most severe conditions. To accomplish this, Hydraulic Oil was blended using the latest super refined base oil stocks with superior thermal stability. Additionally, a large amount of heavy duty anti-oxidation agents are blended in. This combination of superior base oil stocks and powerful anti-oxidation additives makes Hydraulic Oil perform amazingly well during the ASTM D-943 Oxidation Test (hrs.) It scored an amazing 10,000 hrs plus rating. This was 5 times better than standard or traditional fluids typically score.
Superior Foam Resistance
For a hydraulic system to perform efficiently and have maximum operating performance, it is imperative that the hydraulic oil be uncontaminated since the fluid is the critical medium for the hydraulic system to perform its function. If water and moisture were to enter the system and cause contamination, this water / moisture contamination will create unwanted foaming. This is especially possible if temperatures become higher. Additionally, if air were to be present within the system and oil, this will also create unwanted foaming. Again, Hydraulic Oil is a preemptive product that helps stop potential problems in their tracks. Hydraulic O il utilizes a unique anti-foam additive package in huge amounts. This anti-foam chemistry will effectively release and eliminate any water or air contamination that could be causing foaming. Foaming is an enemy to hydraulic fluid. Foam is an insulator that will trap heat, and heat is detrimental to oil, hydraulic components, and seals. By utilizing Hydraulic Oil, you will vastly or totally eliminate foam. This reduction or elimination of foam greatly reduces high temperatures, which leads to prolonged fluid life and component life.
Superior Wear Protection
Hydraulic Oil utilizes a large amount of zinc, an anti-wear additive. This anti-wear additive forms a tough protective film on all hydraulic component metal surfaces. This anti-wear film helps in maintaining a protective barrier between metal-to-metal parts. The combination of superior thermal stable base oils along with extra anti-wear zinc, provides a string wear reducing film on metal surfaces. This combination vastly reduces friction and wear, which leads to a reduction in temperatures which ultimately translates to extended oil and equipment life.
A typical hydraulic system piston needs to perform under very high pressures. This environment calls for a hydraulic fluid that can help minimize friction of the sensitive and critical seal materials without causing the seal itself to be damaged. To create such a lubricant is a complex challenge. Hydraulic Oil is more than up to this tough challenge. In fact, it is the dominant performer within the hydraulic oil industry. Hydraulic Oil utilizes its proprietary state of the art additive chemistry which was designed to protect hydraulic system seals at all costs. Friction reduction and extended fluid life is the common feature and characteristic. When changing from traditional hydraulic oil to our premium Hydraulic Fluid, you can expect and actual savings in dollars.
Rust and Corrosion Protection
Regardless of whether water, acids, or other detrimental byproducts exist within a hydraulic system, a hydraulic oil should be able to protect vital hydraulic component parts from rusting and corroding if the oil was correctly formulated. Unfortunately, this is not the case with most conventional or standard hydraulic fluids. Hydraulic Oil utilizes vast amounts of unique heavy duty additives to deal with any potential problems that may exist and you can be assured metal surfaces will be protected from rust and corrosion no matter the environment. The specialized rust and corrosion additives that we use create a tough protective film that coat all metal surfaces, thus helping to protect the critical metal surfaces from moisture and other corrosive enemies. Be assured that by using hydraulic oil, you can forget about ever having any rusting problems.
Your typical standard or inferior hydraulic fluids will thicken during cold temperatures which may lead to pump cavitation or uneven hydraulic performance. When temperatures are elevated or high, hydraulic oil will thin out which will lead to leakage around seals. Additionally, oil that is thinning due to high temperatures will cause an increase of wear and will create a domino effect of problems. Hydraulic Oil on the other hand was designed to be extremely stable regardless of hot or cold temperatures. Hydraulic Oil delivers consistently stable and superior flow characteristics over long periods of use and life. Through the use of the finest quality base stock oils and the huge levels of top of the line additives, hydraulic oil offers amazing viscosity stability and performance. There is no better dependable hydraulic fluid.
