PROGILINE® HF FOR HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS

A fire hazard may exist wherever the accidental escape of pressurised hydraulic fluid may occur near flame, molten metals or hot surfaces. Major fire risk exists, for example in the mining industry, forging industry, die-casting and welding applications.

PROGILINE HF-C 4636 and 4643 are water-glycol based fire resistant hydraulic fluids which greatly reduce the risk of fire upon accidental release without compromising the performance or reliability of hydraulic system components.

PROGILINE HF-C provides excellent protection against liquid and vapour phase corrosion, high levels of wear protection and good foam resistance. Low pourpoint ensures consistent performance over a wide temperature range.

 

HF Series

PROGILINE HF-C 4636
This product
has a water content of 36% and is recommended for use where a combination of optimal lubricity characteristics and fire-resistance are required, for example in metal die casting operations.

PROGILINE HF-C 4643
This product has a water content of 43wt% and is particularly recommended for use where the highest safety margin is needed, for example mining applications.

PROGILINE HF-C CONC
This product is a concentrated form of HF-C fluid which enables the formulator to derive both PROGILINE HF-C 4643 and PROGILINE HF-C 4636 by further blending of the concentrate with Di-ethylene Glycol (DEG) and water.

A thorough draining and flushing procedure is essential when converting from other fluids to water-glycol based fluids. Systems filled with phosphate ester should be flushed with mineral oil prior to undertaking a further flushing procedure with HF-C.
