PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid is a water-glycol type fire resistant hydraulic fluid, it is formulated with di-ethylene glycol as the main glycol component. The product does not contain ethylene glycol. PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid provides excellent protection against rust and against vapor phase corrosion. In hydraulic pump tests, it has shown a high level of anti-wear performance. Viscosity increase due to loss of water by evaporation can be easily corrected by adding de-ionized water to the product.
PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid is recommended for use in all types of hydraulic pumps and motors operating close to a source of ignition, providing the manufacturer instructions are observed. Typical applications include die-casting machines, presses, combustions regulators, furnace door openers, ladle-tilting mechanisms and glass drawing machinery. PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid is compatible with packing in hydraulic systems, except items made from polyurethane, leather or cork materials. In common with all other water-glycol type fluids, PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid is not compatible with typical type paints. Epoxy or phenolic resin based paints are suitable. PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid should not be mixed with other types of fluids. While it is compatible with other water-glycol type products, admixtures may detract from the properties of the product.
Features and benefits:
– Safer working conditions for people and plant by virtue of its outstanding fire-resistant properties.
– Minimum pump and valve wear when used in accordance with the manufactures recommendations. – Good protection against rust and corrosion.
– Very good low temperature fluidity.
– A wide range of application because of its high viscosity index.
The fire-resistant properties of PAX Synthetic Hydraulic Fluid arise from its water content. Even when the fluid is sprayed at a pressure of over 200 Bar (3000 psi) from a diesel injector nozzle into a gas flame it will not ignite, nor will it when dropped onto molten metal.
