The Hydraulic oil range is based upon mineral oils enhanced with a stabilised zinc additive system.
Hydraulic is primarily for use in hydraulic equipment, but is suitable for other duties in which lubricants with good oxidation stability and lubrication performance are required. The quality of its base oils and additives permits the application of the BP Hydraulic range in lightly loaded gears and for use as circulating oil in applications where a rust and oxidation inhibited oil is required.
The range is fully compatible with elastomer materials commonly used for static and dynamic seals, such as nitrile, silicone and fluorinated (e.g. Viton) polymers.
The Hydraulic oils meet the specification requirements of the Vickers vane-pump test, DIN 51524 Part 2 and is classified as DIN 51502 classification – HLP & ISO 6743/4 – Hydraulic Oils Type HM.
