Ecoterra® Hydraulic Fluid - Environmentally Friendly Lubricant


03/28/2013


With more and more customers seeking out eco-friendly oils as a way to positively impact the environment and save money, we would like to remind you of our Ecoterra® Hydraulic Fluid, a high performance lubricant that works well in a variety of applications.

Ecoterra Hydraulic Oil is formulated with an ashless antiwear additive package to provide excellent wear and rust protection for hydraulic pumps and motors. It offers the following eco-friendly benefits:

  • Zinc and heavy metal free
  • Nontoxic to aquatic organisms
  • Biodegradable

The oil's predicted service life is 8,000 hours by ASTM D-943 oxidation test - substantially higher than any conventional hydraulic fluid on the market. It also has good low-temperature properties for cold start-ups as the fluid separates quickly from water to reduce rust and corrosion in the pump, valves and hydraulic motors.

This lubricant may also be used as a lower-cost alternative to synthetic, readily biodegradable hydraulic fluids. It meets the performance requirements of all major hydraulic pump manufacturers and is recommended for use in all types of high-pressure, high-speed hydraulic pumps.
