These high performance hydraulic fluids were designed for use in critical applications such as CPPs, stabilisers and heavy duty cranes where there is potential for fluid loss to occur to the marine environment.
ECOSURE HSE has been strongly recommended by several OEMs for its superior performance properties in critical applications below the waterline and meets the environmental requirements of Swedish Standard 15 54 34.
ECOSURE HSE fluids are based on fully saturated synthetic esters and demonstrate exceptional fluid life. In oxidation tests they achieve up to 12,000 hours in the ASTM D-943 DRY TOST test and over 800 minutes in the ASTM D-2272 RPVOT test, demonstrating performance far superior to most competing biodegradable hydraulic fluids.
They will give longer lifetime in arduous conditions by resisting the onset of ageing. Deposit formation in critical hydraulic control valves will be minimised leading to extended, smoother, more reliable operations.
ECOSURE HSE achieves biodegradability of greater than 60% in the 28 day OECD 301B test, and is considered non-toxic in the marine environment based on the following results:
|LC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l||EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l||EC50 exceeds 1000 mg/l|
ECOSURE HSE meets the detailed ecological definitions and requirements laid down in the 2013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) published by the US EPA in March 2013.
|Extended fluid life||Fewer fluid changes, less equipment downtime and lower overall cost of ownership|
|Improved lubricity||Less wear and longer pump life|
|Wider operating temperatures||Protects equipment from -35°C to over +100°C|
|Good hydrolytic stability||Resists breakdown of the lubricant by water in high temperature situations|
|Good oxidative stability||Less sludge and system failures, longer fluid life and less fluid thickening|
|Good thermal stability||Less fluid thickening and system failures due to lower levels of corrosive decomposition products|
|Superior demulsification||Excellent water separation allowing easy removal of water and reduced pump wear|
|Good VI||Fluid remains within the desired viscosity over a broader temperature range|
|Good shear stability||Less viscosity loss, fewer fluid changes and prolonged pump life|
|Good seal compatibility||Less leakage and less equipment downtime|
|Good long term filterability||Less filter blockage and less equipment downtime|
|Biodegradable and minimally toxic||Lower environmental risk|
