Recent Results of Biodegradability and Toxicology Studies of Water-Glycol Hydraulic Fluids 972744

Like all industries, the fluid power industry is under increasing pressure to identify and use hydraulic fluids that offer higher performance, improved fire safety, and exhibit improved environmental and toxicological behavior. Recently a novel hydrolube composition has been developed that is capable of being used in hydraulic pumps at pressures of 34.4 MPa (5000 psi) and greater*. In addition to being a Group 1 Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid according to the new Factory Mutual Research Corporation's testing methodology, this high-performance hydrolube also exhibits excellent biodegradability and toxicology properties. The objective of this paper is to discuss pump performance, fire resistance, and environmental and toxicology properties of this fluid..
