Houghton Houghto-Drive HV 46 - Hydraulic Oils - 44609

Houghton Houghto-Drive HV 46 - Hydraulic Oils - 44609

 

Houghto-Drive HV Hydraulic Oils are multi-grade lubricants containing ash-free antiwear and friction modifying additives in premium quality base oils.
They are designed to retain their viscosity and performance characteristics over a wider temperature range than would be possible for conventional hydraulic oils. They are especially suitable for hydraulic systems that are subject to extreme ambient or operating temperatures, e.g. in outdoor environments.

 

Advantages:

Type HV oils have been shown to reduce fuel consumption in construction equipment operating in cold environments, when compared to using conventional hydraulic oils. This is attributed to their “multi-grade” nature, which results in better resistance to thickening at low temperature and therefore easier “cold start”.
This capability could also offer a potential benefit for industrial hydraulic equipment users seeking to reduce energy use.
