Next Generation Hydraulic Fluid

Petro-Canada Lubricants, a Suncor business, has reformulated its HYDREX line of hydraulic fluids to deliver wear protection, energy efficiencies, extended oil life and strong performance in wide temperature ranges.

HYDREX helps extend equipment life and reduce mechanical failures and maintenance. Engineered on a foundation of Petro-Canada's high Viscosity Index base oils, HYDREX is able to deliver performance in tough conditions, from start up to shut down. "Whether operating in environments with wide temperature ranges or consistently running equipment at very high temperatures, HYDREX is better able to respond to extremes in operating conditions to generate hydraulic pump and system efficiencies," said a company spokesperson.

"By using API Group II and III base oils exclusively, HYDREX can retain its protective properties for up to 10,000 hours, lasting up to three times longer than global competitors," said the spokesperson. The enhanced oxidation and thermal stability of each advanced formulation work to lower sludge formation. All of this helps to keep system components free of varnish, prevent product degradation and extend drain intervals, which reduces time and money spent on maintenance and oil change-outs.

The HYDREX line of high-performance hydraulic fluids offers solutions for a wide range of hydraulic equipment and applications. HYDREX XV is an all-season, semi-synthetic hydraulic fluid for use in heavy-duty hydraulic systems. HYDREX MV is designed for applications operating at high pressures and exposed to wide temperature ranges. Both products enable inventory consolidation and eliminate the need for seasonal change-outs. HYDREX AW is a high-performance, anti-wear hydraulic fluid designed for use in industry segments in which temperature variations are limited. Petro-Canada Lubricants offers additional HYDREX specialty products designed to help various operations meet their needs.

All HYDREX hydraulic fluids start with the HT Purity Process to produce 99.9% pure, crystal-clear base oils.
