Mobil Oil Introduces Six Hydraulic Fluids
—Literature Available Mobil Oil Corporation has introduced six hydraulic fluids for general industrial use. They all meet requirements of system and pump builders for resistance to heat, wear, water, and rust.
The Mobil Hydraulic Oil Series consists of six ISO (International Standards Organization) viscosity grades. Four are anti-wear (AW) oils in viscosities of 32, 46, 68, and 100. The other two are mild extreme pressure (EP) oils in viscosities of 150 and 220. All have typical viscosity indexes (VI) of 95.
The four AW fluids are recommended for use in most hydraulic systems with gear, vane, radial piston, and axial piston pumps where pressures and speeds require an anti-wear product. The two EP oils are recommended for hydraulic systems which require heavier oils and for lubrication of moderately loaded enclosed gear sets and bearings lubricated by circulation or bath.
Applications include machine tool hydraulic systems, materials forming and handling equipment, presses, cutters and grinders, and underground mining equipment.
These Mobil Hydraulic Oil Series are formulated from high-quality, chemically stable, petroleum base stocks. Additives give them additional protection against heat, abnormal component wear, the effects of water contamination and rust. Mobil also markets two other lines of hydraulic fluids: the SHC Series synthetic-based fluids, and the DTE 20 Series oils, the top-ofthe- line petroleum-based products. Both have demonstrated the ability to perform well under extended changeout periods and to resist deposit formation and oxidation.
