Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil ISO 46

Provides Outstanding Protection and High Biodegradability

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION & Highlights

AMSOIL Biodegradable Synthetic Hydraulic Oil is a premium performance, readily biodegradable oil manufactured with synthetic esters. Its high viscosity index provides excellent all-season performance, reducing the need for seasonal change-outs. It remains fluid at low temperatures due to its low pour point to promote smooth, efficient operation in cold weather. Biodegradable Synthetic Hydraulic Oil is compatible with most common seal and hose materials to help prevent leaks.

Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil ISO 46AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil (BHO) is a premium performance hydraulic oil designed to biodegrade when subjected to sunlight, water and microbial activity. Manufactured with a high quality blend of oleic vegetable oils and customized synthetic esters, it meets the U.S. Federal bio-based procurement guidelines as defined in Section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (FSRIA).

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 ISO 46 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.

Maximum Protection and Efficiency

Synthetic ester-based biodegradable hydraulic oils offer improved cold flow compared to their vegetable-based counterparts. AMSOIL Biodegradable Synthetic Hydraulic Oil’s low pour point (-54ºF) ensures immediate oil flow in cold temperatures to help reduce pressure spikes and wear while increasing energy efficiency.

Reduces Environmental Impact

Biodegradable Synthetic Hydraulic Oil is readily biodegradable, with an environmental persistence classification of Pw1, the fastest and highest level of biodegradation. It helps reduce environmental harm in the event of leaks or minor spills.
