Petro-Canada Lubricants reformulates HYDREX line of hydraulic fluids

Petro-Canada Lubricants, a Suncor business, has reformulated its HYDREX line of hydraulic fluids to deliver leading wear protection, greater energy efficiencies, extended oil life and strong performance in wide temperature ranges.

“The full HYDREX line has always delivered beyond expectations,” said Robert Farthing, category manager, lubricants, Suncor. “Our objective with the reformulation is to take product performance even further and help customers achieve their goals to increase equipment and operational productivity.”

Formulated with Petro-Canada’s high viscosity index base oils, HYDREX is able to deliver maximum performance in the toughest conditions, from start up to shut down. By using API Group II and III base oils exclusively, HYDREX is proven to retain its protective properties for up to 10,000 hours, lasting up to three times longer than global competitors, the company said. The superior oxidation and thermal stability of each advanced formulation work to significantly lower sludge formation. All of this helps to keep system components free of varnish, prevent product degradation and extend drain intervals.

The HYDREX line of high-performance hydraulic fluids offers solutions for a wide range of hydraulic equipment and applications. HYDREX XV is an all-season, semi-synthetic hydraulic fluid for use in heavy-duty hydraulic systems. HYDREX MV is ideal for applications operating at high pressures and exposed to wide temperature ranges. Both products enable inventory consolidation and eliminate the need for seasonal change-outs. HYDREX AW is a high-performance, anti-wear hydraulic fluid designed for use in industry segments in which temperature variations are limited.
