Synthetic Fire-Resistant Hydraulic Oil ApprovedMarch 1, 2016
AP&T has approved the use of a synthetic fire-resistant hydraulic oil for hot environments within AP&T’s press-hardening lines. The oil, from Quaker Chemical Corp., Conshohocken, PA, was extensively tested in AP&T’s press-hardening lines, according to Quaker officials, to determine how it impacts hydraulic components and gaskets. “The oil works at least as well in our lines as conventional hydraulic oil, and it also has superior qualities in terms of fire safety and the environment,” says Patrik Haglund, presses product manager for AP&T.
