Mobil EAL 224H  

Mobil Industrial, United States

Hydraulic Fluid

Product Description

Mobil EAL 224H is a premium performance environmentally aware hydraulic fluid designed to provide outstanding performance in hydraulic and circulation systems operating at moderate conditions. It provides excellent anti-wear and film strength characteristics necessary for hydraulic systems operating under high load and high pressures. Its 12-stage rating in the FZG Gear Load test demonstrates a high level of protection against wear and scuffing and the suitability of this product to protect gears and bearings used in conjunction with hydraulic systems. Mobil EAL 224H provides excellent protection against corrosion and ensures very good multi-metal compatibility allowing its use in systems employing various metallurgy that may be used in pump and component designs. It also provides very good thin oil film protection against rusting. In addition to its exceptional performance capability, it satisfies the requirements for ready biodegradability and non-toxicity making it a desirable product where leakage or spillage of conventional oils could result in damage to the environment.

It is formulated from select, high-quality, high-VI vegetable oils and a specifically engineered additive system to meet or exceed the performance requirements of most hydraulic pump and system builders while satisfying the stringent criteria for biodegradability and toxicity.

Features and Benefits

Mobil EAL 224H provides excellent anti-wear, lubricity, and film strength performance in hydraulic and circulation systems operating under moderate operating conditions. The ready biodegradability and virtually non-toxic nature of this product makes it an excellent choice where leakage or spillage could enter environmentally sensitive areas. The inadvertent leakage of spillage of this product in environmentally sensitive areas could result in easier clean-up and lower remediation costs.

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Ready Biodegradability and Non-Toxicity Reduces potential for environmental damage
Lowers potential remediation and clean-up costs caused by spills or leakage
Becomes an integral part of plant environmental program
Outstanding Load-Carrying and Anti-Wear Properties Protects system components against wear and scuffing
Provides long equipment life
Exceptional Corrosion Protection Reduces corrosion of internal system components
Excellent Multi-Metal Compatibility Will not react with steel or copper alloys
Good Elastomer Compatibility Works well with same elastomers used with conventional mineral based oils. No need for special seals or elastomers
