Bio-1000 Hydraulic Fluids
Bio-1000 Hydraulic Fluids (ISO 32, 46 & 68) are Ultimately Biodegradable*, vegetable oil-based formulas that replace mineral oil-based hydraulic fluids. Bio-Hydraulic Fluids are formulated to perform in hydraulic systems that require Anti-Wear (AW), anti-rust, anti-oxidation, antifoam, and demulsibility properties.
WISE Bio-1000 Hydraulic Fluids (ISO 32, 46 & 64) are Ultimately Biodegradable* vegetable oil-based formulas that replace mineral oil based hydraulic fluids. Bio-Hydraulic Fluids are formulated to perform in hydraulic systems that require Anti-Wear (AW), anti-rust, anti-oxidation, antifoam, 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. The super high viscosity base stocks increase the viscosity index past synthetic levels, thus conserving energy. Zinc-free additive systems have also been developed that are environmentally friendly and meet or exceed pump requirements.
WISE Bio-Hydraulic Fluids are designed for use in mobile and stationary hydraulic vane, piston, and gear-type pumps and have shown to have exceptional anti-wear performance. Very little wear was encountered, 0 to 25mg (Pass), in accelerated biobased tests using Denison T-5D, Vickers 20VQ, 35VQ-25 (M-2950-S), and V-104C (ASTM D-2882) pump stand tests at pressures and temperatures ranging from 2000 to 3000 psi and from 1500 to 2100 F. The anti-wear performance exceeds the load stage 10 in the FZG (DIN 51354) requirements for US Steel 136, DIN51524, and GM (LS-2). They also meet the requirements for ashless GL-3 gear oils in reduction units and gear sets where they meet the viscosity ranges.
The super high viscosity index of the base stock naturally improves the thermal shear stability of the formula and increases load capacity, while extremely low volatility increases the flash and fire safety features. They are designed to provide seal conditioning for longer seal life and to reduce oil leakage from the system. Bio-Hydraulic Fluids should be used in hydraulic systems where low toxicity and biodegradability properties are required or advantageous. Base oils and additives in these products pass and exceed the acute toxicity (LC-50) criteria adopted by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and the US EPA. Bio-Hydraulic Fluids are environmentally responsible lubricants formulated from renewable, non-GMO agricultural plant resources. We believe Earth’s environmental future rests in the use of renewable materials.
Test results on the Technical Datasheets page 2, show that Bio-Hydraulic Fluids provide high performance in a wide variety of stationary and transportation equipment that operate in broad ranges of environmental conditions. In equipment operating outside, wear from poor cold temperature pumpability, surge loads, moisture, and dusty environments are more prominent. Bio-1000 Hydraulic Fluids are formulated to improve performance in equipment that requires excellent anti-wear, hydrolytic stability, and cold temperature pumpability as low as -350C. In addition the products may be used in machine tool hydraulic systems with the above Denison and Vickers pump requirements.
These products are based on a proprietary and patented anti-oxidant, anti-wear, and cold flow technology. Base stocks are non-GMO agricultural vegetable oils. This stabilized technology provides high performance in high and low temperature applications, reducing oil thickening and deposits.
