Biodegradable hydraulic fluid

September 3, 2007


Derived from vegetable seeds, Cosmolubric FG-46 hydraulic fluid is biodegradable, meets USDA H1 lubricant requirements for incidental food contact and doesn’t require treatment as a hazardous waste.  The oil maintains a low total acid number, high viscosity index and high flash/fire points. It is appropriate for equipment used in the manufacture of snack foods, baked goods, meat, poultry, soft drinks, seafood and fruit.
