Hydraulic Fluids not only act as the fluid power medium, they lubricate hydraulic system parts. Hydraulic pump units are subjected to high system pressures and pump speeds. This can create conditions of thin-film lubrication and cause eventual mechanical wear unless the fluid contains special protective additives. Along with proper viscosity selection, lubricants should also be selected for proper oxidation and thermal stability, rust and corrosion prevention, anti-wear, seal compatibility, flammability and other potential important requirements.
Molykote™ L-1346FM Synthetic Blend Hydraulic Oil
Molykote hydraulic oils minimize formation of emulsions in contact with water due to the purity of the base fluid. They will generally perform successfully in hydraulic systems far longer than conventional hydraulic oils. Plants can gain significant savings from reduced oil consumption, reduced disposal cost, labor savings and fewer interruptions to production. These non-toxic oils are derived from hydrocracked or synthetic base stocks and can be used in systems designed for low pour point or high flash point mineral oils.Learn More
