Environmental Friendly Hydraulic Fluids

Environmental Friendly Hydraulic Fluids are synthetic fluids made specifically to be biodegradeable. They can be especially useful when operating machinery in environmantally sensitive areas.

Vegetable oils can be used to create fluids that also come from a renewable source. In addition to biodegradability and low toxicity, vegetable-based oils also can have improved performance characteristics over mineral based oils such as high flash point, slow volatility, super high viscosity indices, and excellent lubricity.
