Clarity® Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW

Clarity® Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW is designed to help protect both mobile and stationary hydraulic equipment in industrial applications, as well as in environmentally sensitive areas. Clarity Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW is formulated with synthetic base stock and an ash less, zinc-free additive system that provides oxidation stability, water separability, foam suppression, and helps protect against wear, rust and corrosion. Clarity Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW is designed to meet or exceed the performance requirements of conventional anti-wear hydraulic oils, especially in severe, high-output applications such as axial piston pumps, while providing an additional level of safety in case of leaks or incidental discharge to the environment.

Recommended Uses

Clarity Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW is designed for use in mobile and stationary hydraulic vane, piston, and gear type pumps. The anti-wear performance of Clarity Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW makes it especially suited for high performance industrial applications utilizing axial piston pumps where pressures may exceed 5,000 psi. It has a viscosity index much higher than typical conventional anti-wear hydraulic oils, provides optimal flow at low temperatures, and good oil film protection at high operating temperatures. Clarity Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW is well suited for applications situated in environmentally sensitive areas. The ISO 32 and ISO 46 formulations of this product have good low-temperature pumpability properties that extend to temperatures as low as –30°C (–22°F). Clarity® Synthetic Hydraulic Oils AW are not compatible with zinc/calcium containing fluids, and OEM recommended lubricant change-out procedures including drain and flush requirements need to be adhered to.

Performance Benefits

1. Premium Performance

Ashless formulation provides wear protection, rust and corrosion protection, hydrolytic stability, water separability, foam inhibition, and filterability.

2. Long Oil Life

Ability of the synthetic base stock to withstand oxidation at high operating temperatures results in maximum service life for the oil.

3. Wear Protection at Start-up

Minimum change in viscosity over wide operating temperatures due to high viscosity index. Multi-viscosity performance minimizes the need to change viscosity grades for seasonal changes.

4. Environmental Sensitivity

Very low acute aquatic toxicity to both fish and invertebrates based on tests of water accommodated fractions. Ashless formulation facilitates conventional recycling programs.

5. Low Temperature Pumpability

The ISO 32 and ISO 46 formulations are specifically developed to ensure good low temperature fluidity for low temperature operations as low as –30°C (–22°F).

6. Zinc-free

Suited for applications involving yellow metals found in axial piston pumps.
