Typical Formulations

Base Oils

The oxidation performance of finished oils is significantly impacted by the vegetable oil selection.

Viscosity Grades

Polymeric thickeners or viscosity index improvers may be used in combination with vegetable-based hydraulic oils. Compatibility of these
polymers must be checked prior to implementation. In addition, these polymers may impact the biodegradation and low temperature properties
of the oil.

Other Formulation Approaches

In order to assist with logistics this finished oil is available from Cargill for rebrand. Contact Cargill directly for information.

Vegetable based hydraulic oils may be used in a broad variety of applications where the operating temperatures are too extreme. In addition, contamination with water should be avoided.

Drain intervals are likely to be shorter with vegetable-based hydraulic fluids than with fluids based on mineral oils. Where there is any doubt, oil monitoring programs may be conducted.
