HydraFlowNS Plus

High Pressure Water Glycol Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid

Description

*HydraFlow™NS Plus™ water glycol fire resistant hydraulic fluid is a premium, general purpose water glycol fire resistant hydraulic fluid which provides a safer working environment than conventional mineral or vegetable oilbased hydraulic fluids. In applications where hydraulic piping may rupture and spray hydraulic fluid onto hot surfaces, mineral oil-based fluids can ignite causing a severe hazard to ship’s crew and equipment.

HydraFlow™NS Plus™ water glycol fire resistant hydraulic fluid contains a corrosion inhibitor which protects the system against oxidation and other corrosion effects.

HydraFlow™NS Plus™ has been FM Approved. This is a certification of fire resistance.

Features

Benefits

Excellent fire resistance

Reduced risk of injury to operating/maintenance personnel and damage to equipment caused by hydraulic fluid fires.

Good anti-wear characteristics

Increased protection against premature pump and component wear. Reduced downtime and lower maintenance costs.

Liquid and vapor phase corrosion inhibition

Protects system reservoir and ferrous and non-ferrous components against oxidation and corrosion. Extends equipment life, reduces downtime and maintenance costs.

Inherently low pour point and excellent viscosity temperature characteristics

Excellent cold temperature properties. Wide operating temperature range.

Low toxicity

Reduced health and safety concerns. No special handling or disposal issues.

Readily biodegradable, low ecotoxicity

Reduced environmental liability in case of spills or leaks into the water.

Passes EPA/U.S. Coast Guard Sheen Test

Complies with EPA/Coast Guard Rules.

Applications

  • Hydraulic systems where leakage could pose environmental hazard (water spill)
  • Hydraulic systems where leakage could pose fire hazard
  • Suitable for all hydraulic applications up to 5000 psi continuous running or 7000 psi intermittent
  • Suitable for replacement of all hydraulic oils with a viscosity 32 to 64 centistokes (cSt)

Usage Guidelines

HydraFlow™NS Plus™ water glycol fire resistant hydraulic fluid should be maintained by periodically testing for color, viscosity, water content, pH and Alkalinity Reserves.

  • Color and Appearance: Discoloration of the fluid may indicate changes in the fluid parameters.
  • Viscosity at 40C, cSt: Increases in viscosity indicate water loss, decreases indicate contamination.
  • Water Content: Periodic distilled water make-up is required to replace evaporation. NOTE: To ensure fire protection, water content and viscosity must be maintained at correct levels.
  • pH and Alkalinity Reserve: pH drops may indicate contamination or loss of reserve alkalinity, due to ageing of the hydraulic fluid. Samples should be drawn at least annually for laboratory testing.
