We offer three main types of Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid:
HFA or high water content fluids (HWCF’s) are hydraulic fluids that combine the excellent fire resistant properties of water with lubrication and corrosion protection from an additive concentrate. Because water is the major component (90% or more) of an HFA fluid, hydraulic equipment using this type of fluid must be capable of operating with a low viscosity fluid.
HFC or water glycol fluids are the most widely used fire resistant hydraulic fluids because of their price-quality and their combination of fire resistant properties with reasonable lubrication performance.
Synthetic water free fire resistant hydraulic fluids for use where excellent lubrication, reliable operation and low environmental impact are key considerations.
