AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil exhibits high biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity, along with superior oxidative stability, low temperature performance and outstanding results in laboratory and extended duration pump testing. It contains antioxidants that ensure long oil life and foam inhibitors that promote problem-free operation. It is hydrolytically stable and ideal for use where water contamination is a problem.

Carefully designed additives help prevent pump wear and protect critical components from rust. AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil meets the stringent Vickers M-2950-S and I-286-S hydraulic oil specifications.

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATION

AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is recommended for stationary and mobile applications using gear, vane and piston hydraulic systems operating under high pressure and temperatures up to 180°F. It should also be used where high biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity are desired. Typical applications include construction, logging and farming equipment, lawn and turf care or anywhere leaking, spills or ruptured hydraulic lines may present an environmental hazard.

AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is compatible with most synthetic and petroleum based hydraulic oils. However, to ensure proper performance, it is recommended systems be drained and flushed prior to installing AMSOIL BHO.
