Castrol Hyspin HVI 15 - High viscosity index anti-wear hydraulic oils - 6035

Castrol Hyspin HVI 15 - High viscosity index anti-wear hydraulic oils - 6035

 

The Castrol Hyspin™ HVI range of high viscosity index (VI) oils is based on a carefully selected ashless (zinc free) additive system designed to meet and exceed the most exacting performance standards.


Application

Hyspin HVI oils are intended for severely stressed hydraulic systems requiring a high level of anti-wear performance and fine filtration. In addition, Hyspin HVI exhibits excellent corrosion protection as well as outstanding thermal and oxidative stability. Hyspin HVI has excellent hydrolytic stability and separates rapidly from water contamination. Hyspin HVI contains a shear stable additive system helps maintain the viscosity characteristics of the product over a wide temperature range even during prolonged use and imparts a very low pour point which enables the product to be used in very cold environments. Applications include outdoor equipment which are likely to operate in wide temperature ranges, such as machinery subjected to cold start up conditions and high temperature continuous running. Examples include off-highway and marine applications. Indoor manufacturing equipment that incorporates control systems requiring minimal viscosity change with temperature. Examples include precision machine tools. The Hyspin HVI range is fully compatible with elastomer materials commonly used for static and dynamic seals, such as nitrile, silicone and fluorinated (e.g. Viton) polymers.

Hyspin HVI is classified as follows:
DIN 51502 classification – HVLP
ISO 6743/4 - Hydraulic Oils Type HV

Hyspin HVI grades meet the requirements (for appropriate viscosity grade) of:
DIN 51524 Part 3
Cincinnati Lamb (Milacron) P 68-69-70
Denison (Parker Hannafin) HF-0
US Steel 126 & 127
Eaton (formerly Vickers) I-286-S & M-2950-S
Frank Mohn
Bosch Rexroth RE07075/RE90220


Advantages

  • High viscosity index and low pour point enables the product to be used over a wide temperature range, with good shear stability which means no excessive loss in viscosity due to mechanical shearing.
  • Excellent anti-wear performance provides extended wear protection for hydraulic pumps. Reduced down time due to unscheduled maintenance and savings from replacement part costs.
  • Excellent water separation and hydrolytic stability means reduced down time through prolonged lubricant life and increased equipment reliability.
  • Excellent thermal and oxidative stability provides reliable performance and extended oil life in severe applications. Minimal deposit formation gives a cleaner system and reduced frequency of filter changes.
  • Excellent filterability characteristics (including in the presence of water) enables cost savings to be made due to increased filter life.

Spheerol LMM may be used in plain and roller elements bearings including heavily loaded bearings at low and medium speeds, and those subject to shock loading and excessive vibrations.

 

ADVANTAGES
• Excellent EP and anti-wear performance - protects equipment against extreme loading and helps minimise bearing and component wear.
• Resistance to scuffing and fretting- provides protection against fretting that can occur on parts subject to reciprocating and sliding motion.
• High mechanical stability – the grease keeps its consistency in service ensuring long lubricant life.
• Good adhesion – continuous lubrication and reduced consumption as film stays between lubricated surfaces.
• Good water resistance – the grease film remains on the surface even in the presence of water.
• Resists the corrosion of both copper and steel – helps prevent rust and oxidation on metal surfaces.

Castrol Aero 35 - Landing Gear Shock Strut Fluid - 1965

Castrol Aero 35 - Landing Gear Shock Strut Fluid - 1965

 

Castrol Aero™ 35 is a high quality, MIL-PRF-6083F based ISO Grade 15 mineral hydraulic fluid, containing antiwear agents and corrosion inhibitors. It also contains a shear stable viscosity index improver, anti-oxidant and an approved EP additive system which reduces martensitic streaking of landing gear outer cylinders and galling of shock strut upper bearings. This formulation is specially designed to reduce the "stick-slip" properties of MIL-PRF- 6083F fluids. Aero 35 is available in dyed red (Douglas Aircraft DPM 6177) or straw/yellow (undyed) (Boeing Spec BMS 3-32B, Type I).

 

Application

Aero 35 is specially designed for use in landing gear shock struts. Additionally, Aero 35 is compatible with approved MILPRF- 5606H and MIL-PRF-6083F hydraulic fluids. It is not completely compatible with synthetic gas turbine lubricants nor with phosphate-ester hydraulic fluids. It is compatible with other petroleum-based and synthesized hydrocarbon lubricants, but contamination should be avoided in order to maintain the unique properties of Aero 35. This product is compatible with most seals, hoses, and paints, normally used in shock struts and dispensing equipment connected with this application. While certain grades of the above materials are fully compatible with Aero 35, it is advisable to confirm acceptability of use with either the material manufacturer or Castrol.

 

Aero 35 Red is formulated in accordance with Douglas Aircraft Specification DPS 3.334, referenced as Douglas stocknumber DPM 6177.
Aero 35 Yellow (undyed) is formulated in accordance with Boeing Specification BMS 3-32B, Type I as an alternative to Boeing Service Letters 707-SL-12-2; 727-SL-12-2; 737-SL-12-2; 757-SL-27-15-B. These letters instruct the addition of an EP additive to either the standard or corrosion inhibited mineral based hydraulic fluid for use in their landing gear shock struts.
