Bio-SynXtra™ Marine Hydraulic Fluid

Bio-SynXtra™Marine Hydraulic Fluids were designed specifically to provide exceptional international Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EAL) performance for world-wide marine applications in international waters. They are ultimately biodegradable1, fully saturated biosynthetic HEES formulas that meet both European EU Ecolabel** and US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) guidelines for EALs. These high performance hydraulic fluids are formulated to readily biodegrade and offer low toxicity in aquatic conditions. An environmentally friendly, zinc-free (ash-less) additive system has also been developed that meets or exceeds pump requirements. They can be used in a wide variety of stationary and mobile hydraulic equipment, and these fully saturated ester formulas provide excellent pump lubrication and filterability under normal and abnormal wet conditions.

Bio-SynXtra™ Marine Hydraulic Fluids directly replace petroleum based hydraulic fluids and provide exceptional performance in high and low pressure hydraulic systems that require Anti-Wear (AW), anti-rust, anti-oxidation, anti-foam, and rapid demulsibility properties. They are highly inhibited against moisture and rusting in both fresh and sea water and pass A and B Sequences of the ASTM D-665 Turbine Oil Rust Test. The high viscosity index of these biosynthetic formulas improvesmechanical and thermal shear stability and provides additional fluid value at higher temperatures and pressures. The formulas provide seal conditioning for longer seal life and reduce oil leakage from the system.

Bio-SynXtra™ Marine Hydraulic Fluids provide exceptional protection in hydraulic equipment operating over a wider range of temperatures and environmental conditions. They are recommended for use in hydraulic vane, piston, and gear-type pumps that require DIN 51524 Part 2 and 3, Parker-Denison HF-O, HF-1, HF-2, Eaton-Vickers M-2950-S (35VQ-25) and I-286-S (V-104C), Rexroth, Sauer-Sundstrand, GM (LS-2), US Steel 126, 136, and 127. They also meet the requirements for ashless API GL-1, GL-2, GL-3, DIN 51517 Part 3, and AGMA Non-EP gear oils for bearings, reduction units, and gear sets where they meet the viscosity ranges.

Bio-SynXtra™ Marine Hydraulic Fluids meet the EPA 2013 VGP definition for EALs, and should be used in hydraulic systems where LOW TOXICITY, BIODEGRADABILITY and NON-BIOACCUMULATION properties are required. They exceed the acute toxicity (LC-50 / EC-50 >1000 ppm) criteria adopted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the US EPA. Bio-SynXtra™ Marine Hydraulic Fluids are ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTED LUBRICANTS (EALs) that are formulated from renewable biobased resources. We believe Earth’s environmental future rests in the use of renewable materials.
