Quintolubric Fire Resistant Hydraulic Oils
Through our supply partner Quaker we are able to offer a specialist Fire Resistant Hydraulic Oil – QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46.
QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 has been designed to operate in oil hydraulic systems and fulfils
the requirements set for fire resistant hydraulic fluids of the type HFD-U.
Major applications : Steel industry
QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 is based on synthetic organic esters and contains optimised
additive packages. It does not contain water, phosphate ester or chlorinated hydrocarbons.
Unlike mineral oil, QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 provides a very high level of fire resistance.
As an alternative to mineral oil, QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 can be applied in ecological
sensitive areas since the product has a low water endangering class and is very good
biodegradable. QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 assures a long fluid life and can be applied in
systems that run under severe conditions in combination with little fluid refreshment.
QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 is used as received. Pre-filtration is not necessary, because the
fluid is filtered during production. Its high viscosity index and low pour point make it
suitable for use at a wide temperature range. It has good cold start-up properties and offers
a high viscosity at increased temperatures. To prolong fluid life the maximum
recommended operating temperatures for QUINTOLUBRIC 888-46 are :
- In the reservoir max. 55° C
- In the system max. 70° C
