High water content fire resistant industrial hydraulic fluids

HFA fluids are extremely fire resistant, but they require equipment that has been specifically designed to run with water. Therefore, they cannot be substituted for mineral oil in typical hydraulic equipment.

HFA fluids are widely used in in industrial applications such as steel and aluminium hot rolling mills where the equipment is designed with HFA fluids in mind. Quaker Houghton fully synthetic products offer improved lubrication, consistency, and resistance to biological growth.
