EcoSafe® FR fluids are fully synthetic, non-aqueous hydraulic fluids that are Factory Mutual Approvedindustrial fluids. They can be used in industrial, marine and mobile equipment, including high-pressuresystems, systems with servo valves and all robotics. EcoSafe® FR fluids are formulated from a very highVI, fully synthetic basestock coupled with a patented non-metallic additive package providing theproperties demanded by today’s high performance hydraulic systems while at the same time satisfying thestringent criteria for biodegradability and toxicity. All three viscosity grades achieved a 12-stage rating inthe FZG Gear Test demonstrating a high level of protection against wear and scuffing. EcoSafe® FR fluidsalso have excellent low temperature properties, good shear stability and are resistant to oxidative andthermal degradation. EcoSafe® FR fluids meet or surpass Bosch-Rexroth, Sauer-Danfoss, Denison, Parkerand Eaton (formerly Vickers) specifications.
Typical performance properties are listed in Table 1 with seal compatibility data appearing in Tables 2 and3. The increased performance which EcoSafe® FR fluids provide results in extended pump service life withreduced downtime along with lower maintenance costs. These fluids meet, or exceed, the pumpperformance of premium, anti-wear mineral oils, even at the 450 bar (6,500 psi) operating pressure.Additional bonus features include: non-sludge/varnish forming, high viscosity index, low pour point,excellent heat transfer and low foaming. Compatible with commonly used seals and hoses (Recommended:HNBR, FKM, FEPM, ECO, polyester, and urethane; Satisfactory in many applications: NBR, XNBR,EPDM, and VMQ). Compatible with common metals (Steel, Stainless steel, Brass, Bronze, and Tin).
