Energol SHF - HV



High viscosity index hydraulic oil

Energol SHF-HV premium high viscosity index lubricants are based on the latest stabilised zinc additive technology.



Energol SHF-HV contains a shear stable VI improver which helps maintain the viscosity characteristics of the product over a wide temperature range even during prolonged use. The VI Improver also imparts a very low pour point which enables the product to be used in very cold environments. Energol SHF-HV exhibits excellent corrosion and wear protection as well as outstanding thermal and oxidative stability. In addition, Energol SHF-HV has excellent water separation properties.


These grades are intended for two main types of duty:

  • Outdoor machinery likely to operate in wide ranges of temperature - such as equipment subjected to cold start up conditions and high temperature continuous running. Examples include off-highway and marine applications.
  • Indoor manufacturing equipment that incorporates control systems requiring a hydraulic fluid whose viscosity change with temperature is minimal. Examples include precision machine tools.

The Energol SHF-HV range is fully compatible with the elastomers materials commonly used for static and dynamic seals, such as nitrile, silicone and fluoropolymer.


  • High viscosity index and low pour point enables the product to be used over a wide temperature range
  • Good shear stability means no excessive loss in viscosity due to mechanical shearing.
  • Excellent anti-wear performance provides extended wear protection for hydraulic pumps. Reduced down time due to unscheduled maintenance and savings from reduced replacement part costs.
  • Low deposit formation and longer oil life provides an overall reduction in lubricant costs and used oil disposal costs.
  • Excellent water separation and hydrolytic stability means reduced down time through prolonged lubricant life and increased equipment reliability.
  • Good filterability gives a cleaner system with less frequent filter changes.
