Bio-Ultimax™ 1200LT (Low Temperature) Hydraulic Fluids

Bio-Ultimax™ 1200LT (Low Temperature) Hydraulic Fluids are ultimately biodegradable1, biobased formulas that were designed specifically to replace mineral oil based hydraulic fluids for environmentally sensitive and/or cold temperature areas.  Bio-Ultimax™ 1200LT Hydraulic Fluids are formulated to perform in hydraulic systems that require anti-wear, anti-foam, anti-rust, anti-oxidation, and demulsibility properties.  They are highly inhibited against moisture and rusting in both fresh and sea water and pass both A and B Sequences of the ASTM D-665 Turbine Oil Rust Test.  Incorporating the super high viscosity index of the Stabilized* High Oleic Base Stocks (HOBS) into the formula, gives multi-grade synthetic base oil performance by boosting the viscosity index (VI) past synthetic levels (energy conserving formulas).  This super high viscosity index of the HOBS naturally improves the thermal shear stability of the formula and increases load capacity.  They provide additional fluid value at the higher temperatures, which is a performance benefit over lower VI products of the same ISO viscosity.  The HOBS’s extremely low volatility increases the flash and fire safety features in the formula compared to petroleum formulations with the same viscosity ranges.  A zinc-free additive system has also been developed that is environmentally friendly and exceeds the load stage 10 in the FZG (DIN51354), DIN 51524 Part 2 and 3 requirements for low viscosity hydraulic and turbine oils.

Bio-Ultimax™ 1200 LT Hydraulic Fluids meet the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) guidelines for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (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. Because they meet the environmental requirements they can also be used where ISO 15380 (HEES/HETG) Hydraulic Fluids are specified. Bio-Ultimax™ Hydraulic Fluids are ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTED LUBRICANTS (EALs) that are formulated from renewable biobased resources.
