Exploring new oil fields and recovering more challenging reserves means operating in increasingly harsh conditions. Quaker Houghton fire resistant hydraulic fluids help overcome industry challenges by enhancing safety, equipment durability and compliance.

Operating in High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) fields increases the fire risk. Replacing oil-based fluids with water-based HFC fire resistant hydraulic fluids significantly reduces risk and improves safety. HFC hydraulic fluids are also replacing oil-based fluids in applications to ensure compliance with increasingly stringent offshore environmental regulations.

HFC fluids help minimize maintenance through improved equipment durability to benefit safety. These qualities make them ideal for use in offshore installations, whether on surface equipment such as motion compensation cylinders or on subsea equipment when used as a control fluid to operate valves and blow-out preventers. The fire-resistant properties mean greater fire safety, offering more time to initiate fire-fighting measures and bring people to safety in the event of an accident.
