Castrol Hyspin AWH-M 46 - Hydraulic systems - 6155

 

Castrol Hyspin™ AWH-M hydraulic oils are mineral oil based anti-wear hydraulic fluids which incorporate viscosity index improvers in order to enhance their viscosity - temperature performance for use in environments which are subject to low or widely variable temperatures. The high viscosity index can also allow a degree of rationalisation of hydraulic fluids across different equipment in order to reduce the number of lubricants carried on board.

 

Application

Castrol Hyspin AWH-M contains a shear stable VI which helps maintain the viscosity characteristics of the product over a wide range as well as through prolonged use. Utilising, the same additive system, as described for the Hyspin AWS product range, means that Hyspin AWH-M exhibits excellent corrosion and wear protection as well as outstanding thermal and oxidative stability. In addition, Hyspin AWH-M has excellent stability in the presence of water and separates rapidly from such contamination upon standing.


Advantages

  • High viscosity index = Reduced viscosity variation over the operational temperature range. Better pumping characteristics, helps the system run at an optimum
  • Excellent anti-wear performance = Reduced down-time due to unscheduled maintenance. Savings from reduced replacement part costs
  • Outstanding oxidative stability = Longer oil operating life due to overall reduction in lubricant costs and used oil disposal costs
  • Superior hydrolytic stability = Lubricant performance even in the presence of contaminating water
  • Outstanding protection against corrosion = Total operational confidence even in the most arduous of conditions. Cleaner system with cost reductions in filter changes
  • Excellent water separation = Reduced down-time, prolonged lubricant life

 

OTHER INFORMATION:
Hyspin AWH-M conforms to ISO Grade HV, DIN.51524, Part 3, Class HVLP (+).
Seal Compatibility - Suitable for use with Nitrile, Buna-N, Viton and Silicone seal materials.

Castrol Biobar 46 - Environmentally responsible hydraulic fluids - 6173

Castrol Biobar 46 - Environmentally responsible hydraulic fluids - 6173

 

The Castrol BioBar range of high specification hydraulic oils are intended as drop-in replacements for conventional mineral oils in equipment where there is a risk of accidental spillage or leakage and consequent environmental pollution. Hydraulic systems are found throughout an offshore installation - on cranes, drill floor power units and hydraulic ring mains and are often located where leakage or spillage can escape into the marine environment. High flow rates, high operating pressures and extensive use of flexible hoses combine to make these systems vulnerable to rapid loss of fluid caused by chafe or mechanical damage.

Castrol BioBar contains selected additives ensuring good oxidation stability, good anti-corrosion and anti-wear properties and low aquatic toxicity. The combination of base oils used in Castrol BioBar endows it with a very high viscosity index and an extremely low pour point as well as giving excellent compatibility with elastomeric seal materials. The careful choice of the saturated synthetic ester enables the product to operate up to +120ºC system temperature.

The product level biodegradability of Castrol BioBar was measured in an extended OECD 306 (seawater) biodegradation test with a result greater than 60%, making it 100% more biodegradable than conventional mineral oils. This ensures its biodegradation should it enter the marine environment. The toxicity of Castrol BioBar was measured on 6 marine species and was found to be 100 times less toxic than conventional mineral oils. It also has > 50% less potential for bioaccumulation and > 30% of Castrol BioBar is derived from renewable sources.

Castrol BioBar is miscible with conventional mineral oil based hydraulic fluids. When changing from mineral oil based products to Castrol BioBar, the system should be drained to ensure that the mineral oil content of the refilled system is less than 5%. This is necessary to ensure that the maximum environmental benefit can be achieved.

 

Application

Hydraulic systems and hydrostatic transmissions incorporating gear pumps, vane pumps, radial piston or axial piston pumps and motors where there is a perceived risk of ingress into the environment in the event of spillage or leakage.

 

Benefits

Castrol BioBar hydraulic fluids combine excellent protection, extended drain performance and versatility in Offshore operations to provide the following key benefits:

  • High biodegradability, reduced bioaccumulation potential and low toxicity in comparison with conventional mineral oils to minimise environmental impact in the event of spillage or leakage.
  • Good oxidation and hydrolytic stability.
  • High shear stability.
  • Compatible with all common seal materials (Nitrile, Viton, HNBR) allowing simple replacement of mineral oil in hydraulic systems.
  • Exceeds the requirements of the Eaton-Vickers 35VQ25 pump test.
