Zeller+Gmelin launches PAO-based multigrade hydraulic oil
Zeller+Gmelin has launched a fully synthetic, biodegradable multigrade hydraulic oil, Divinol SynthoHyd Eco46.
“Our development department is permanently working on continuously increasing the proportion of sustainable, resource-saving lubricants, especially for outdoor use,” said Andreas Krapf, product manager for Automotive and Special Automotive Products, Zeller+Gmelin.
As an environmentally friendly hydraulic oil, Divinol SynthoHyd Eco46 is suitable for year-round use in, for example, construction, agricultural and forestry machinery and even snow groomers due to its temperature resistance.
“Whether on land or in water—our new bio-hydraulic oil is designed for high temperature fluctuations and at the same time protects the environment through the lowest possible oil input,” Krapf said.
Divinol SynthoHyd Eco46 can also be used in stationary hydraulics and industrial plants, such as, for example, injection moulding machines.
The new bio hydraulic oil has been awarded the EU Ecolabel (DE/027/268), the Austrian Ecolabel and the Swedish Ecolabel Swedish Standard SS 155434.
The use of a high-quality zinc/ash-free additive combination also ensures excellent corrosion and wear protection as well as improved ageing behaviour. Due to the synthetic base oil characteristics, no gumming or deposits due to thermally induced oil ageing occur even at higher operating temperatures. The hydraulic oil is formulated with polyalphaolefins (PAO) and is fully biodegradable according to OECD 301 B.
“Divinol SynthoHyd Eco46 has excellent low- and high temperature behaviour and is ideal for extended oil change intervals. Our users therefore not only protect the environment and important resources, but in return they also get the performance they need in daily use.”
