Environmentally Acceptable Hydraulic Fluids
Hydraulic fluids play several important roles in the smooth operation of a well-balanced and well designed hydraulic system including:
- Heat transfer
- Power transfer
- Corrosion prevention
For some years now there has been an increasing awareness of the impact of large amounts of lubricants entering the environment. Several countries have already restricted the use of mineral oil based products in environmentally sensitive areas and these countries insist on the use of environmentally acceptable lubricants.
Croda is a world leader in the development of synthetic base fluids for use in environments where the possibility of leakage or spillage is a major concern.
Croda has developed an industry leading range of ester lubricant base fluids branded under the well-known Crodamol™ and Priolube™ trade names. Many of Croda's products designed for environmentally sensitive areas are made using renewable and sustainable raw materials, all are ultimately biodegradable and have low toxicity towards aquatic organisms.
