Conversion and compatibility of fire-resistant fluids

Extreme high temperature grease

If hydraulic fluids come in contact with a source of ignition or the surface of hot equipment, they can pose a fire risk. Particular applications of concern include die-casting operations and continuous casting hydraulics in steel mills or presses that are operated near ovens. 

This article gives insight into fire-resistant hydraulic fluids, including what they are, different formulations to choose from and how to convert your systems. Understand how to select and convert to a fire-resistant fluid – or from one fire-resistant fluid to another – including key checkpoints for a conversion or change.
