EcoSafe® FR fluids are fully synthetic, non-aqueous hydraulic fluids that are Factory Mutual Approved industrial fluids. They can be used in industrial, marine and mobile equipment, including high-pressure systems, 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 the properties demanded by today’s high performance hydraulic systems while at the same time satisfying the stringent 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 and thermal degradation. EcoSafe® FR fluids meet or surpass Bosch-Rexroth, Sauer-Danfoss, Denison, Parker and 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 with reduced downtime along with lower maintenance costs. These fluids meet, or exceed, the pump performance 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).
