Hydraulic Fluid

 

Product Description

Rust-X Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid is a premium water glycol type of fire resistant fluid designed to provide optimum performance in hydraulic systems. This product is formulated with diethylene glycol.

Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid is specially formulated to provide excellent service over a range of operating conditions, and contains no nitrites or nitrosamines.

This product contains a sufficient amount of water to “snuff out” ignition which could occur if a high pressure leak in a hydraulic system allows the fluid to come in contact with a high temperature source.

In addition to its excellent fire resistant properties, this fluid contains a proper additive balance to impart the necessary lubricity, corrosion protection, and overall performance demanded by today’s high performance hydraulic systems. The addition of an antiwear component in the basic formulation provides extended pump life in systems operating under high pressure or overloaded conditions. The increased performance which Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid provides, results in extended pump service life and reduced downtime along with lower maintenance costs.

Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid meets U.S. Steel Requirement No. 171 for water glycol fire resistant fluids. This product has also been tested and approved by Factory Mutual. 

 
 

Benefits

• Rust and corrosion inhibitors - Protects metal surfaces against moisture and acids.

• High viscosity Index - Remains stable in viscosity over a wide temperature range.

• Low Pour Point- Provides fluid operation at lower temperatures.

• Excellent Thermal Transfer - Provides heating and cooling transfer at maximum levels.

• Antifoam - Extends equipment life and minimizes downtime.

APPLICATIONS:

 The scope of application for Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid covers most types of hydraulic equipment found in steel mills, die casting and power transmission plants.

Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid has been authorized by USDA, Classification H-2 for use in processing plants under the federal meat and poultry products inspection program.
