What is HLP 46 hydraulic oil?
The hydraulic oil HLP 46 is used as pressure fluid in industrial and mobile hydraulic systems. It must withstand high thermal loads, prevent corrosion when water is supplied and minimise wear when mixed friction occurs. The designation HLP 46 is composed of “HLP” and “46”.
What is HLP grade oil?
Valvoline HLP hydraulic fluids are based on highly refined mineral oil and enhanced with a stabilized zinc additive system. Formulated with high quality mineral base oils and specific additives to protect against corrosion, foaming and sludge forming.
What’s the difference between hydraulic oil 46 and 68?
The numbers 46 and 68 refer to the ISO Viscosity, and all hydraulic oils sold in Australia use this number grading system. These numbers can be thought of in this way: the lower the number, the thinner the oil and the higher the number the thicker the oil. Oil viscosity changes with temperature.
What does ISO VG 32 mean?
International Standards Organization Viscosity Grade
ISO VG stands for “International Standards Organization Viscosity Grade” and is reported in numbers ranging from 2 all the way up to 1500. This number is critical because a lubricant’s viscosity is the single most important factor when selecting the right oil for your machinery.
What weight is ISO 46 hydraulic oil?
Obviously, SAE and ISO use two different scales to measure viscosity. SAE 10W is equivalent to ISO 32, SAE 20 is equivalent to ISO 46 and 68, and SAE 30 is equivalent to ISO 100.
What types of hydraulic fluid are there?
Types of hydraulic fluid
- HYDRAULIC FLUIDS BASED ON SYNTHETIC ESTERS. Synthetic esters are produced by a chemical reaction between alcohol and fatty acid.
- HYDRAULIC FLUIDS BASED ON MINERAL OILS.
- HYDRAULIC FLUIDS BASED ON VEGETABLE OILS.
- SOME ENVIRONMENTS WITH SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS.
- HYDRAULIC FLUIDS AND THE ENVIRONMENT.
Can you mix AW32 and AW 46?
“Is it all right to mix an R&O hydraulic oil with an AW hydraulic oil in a hydraulic application?” Mixing oils with different additive packages is never recommended. Doing so could compromise the additive performance of both constituents, cause corrosion of component surfaces and lead to increased mechanical wear.
What is ISO 46 hydraulic oil used for?
The Traveller TS42465G All Season Hydraulic Oil ISO 46 (SAE 20 Equivalent) is a high quality hydraulic oil that is specifically formulated to protect against rust, corrosion, foaming, oxidation and meets or exceeds the requirements for industrial and mobile hydraulic systems.
