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

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.

Castrol Antifreeze NF - Antifreeze - 1735

Castrol Antifreeze NF - Antifreeze - 1735

 

Applications

Castrol Anti-freeze NF is a balanced formulation of mono ethylene glycol and corrosion inhibitors. Castrol Anti-freeze NF is a nitrite, phosphate and amine-free coolant containing ethylene glycol. It has been developed to meet the growing demand from manufacturers for a higher performance coolant that minimises environmental impact.
Aqueous solutions of Castrol Anti-freeze NF act as both an antifreeze and coolant and impart very good anti-corrosion protection to all metal parts found in the cooling systems of internal combustion engines.

 

Features / Benefits
Castrol Anti-freeze NF provides excellent protection against corrosion, and because it contains no phosphate, the problems of deposits in some modern performance engines are eliminated. In addition to providing excellent corrosion and low temperature protection, the use of the recommended level of anti-freeze will significantly reduce the likelihood of wet cylinder liner pitting due to " cavitation erosion".
Cavitation erosion is caused by the implosion of air bubbles present in the coolant and which are attracted to the liner outer surface. These
bubbles implode, resulting in the removal of minute amounts of liner material - this, if allowed to continue unchecked, will result in liner
porosity and severe engine damage.

  • Mercedes Benz 325.2 and 325.0 (7700.00 and 7700.10/20)
  • Volkswagen TL-VW774C
  • MAN 324

Castrol Radicool NF - Antifreeze coolant - 1751

Castrol Radicool NF - Antifreeze coolant - 1751

 

Castrol Radicool NF is an antifreeze concentrate formulated using monoethylene glycol and selected additives , free from nitrite, amine and phosphate inhibitors. It uses hybrid technology for the modern performance engines of cars and trucks. This coolant should be used at concentrations of between 33 % and 50% dilution with purified water to give optimum corrosion protection and freezing protection between -18°C and -36 °C.

 

Application

Castrol Radicool NF has been developed to meet the growing demand from engine and vehicle manufacturers for a higher performance coolant that minimises environmental impact. It provides excellent protection against corrosion, and because it contains no phosphate, the problems of deposits in some modern performance engines are eliminated. In addition to providing excellent corrosion and low temperature protection, the use of the recommended level of anti-freeze will significantly reduce the likelihood of wet cylinder liner pitting due to " cavitation erosion". Cavitation erosion is caused by the implosion of air bubbles present in the coolant and which are attracted to the liner outer surface. These bubbles implode, resulting in the removal of minute amounts of liner material - this, if allowed to continue unchecked, will result in liner porosity and severe engine damage.

 

Advantages:

  • Protects for up to 3 years
  • Excellent low temperature protection
  • Provides excellent protection against corrosion
  • Efficient lubrication of water pumps
  • Compatible with conventional seal and hose materials used in engine cooling systems
  • Contains bittering agent.
  • Has many OEM approvals


Also recommended against the following specifications
BMW N 600 6910
Opel/Vauxhall B040 0240
Volvo 1286083 Issue 002
Jenbacher TA-NR1000- 0201

In the majority of cases, coolants are not compatible and should not be mixed with other coolants unless directed by the equipment manufacturer. If using Castrol Radicool NF for the first time, ensure that the cooling system has been adequately flushed with clean water.
