MAKER TELEX HFC 46
Fire-resistant hydraulic fluid based on a mixture of water and glycol. It is a fluid intended mainly for replacing mineral hydraulic oils in systems with high fire risk. It has a water content of approximately 37% and is designed for use in the metallurgy industry, where excellent lubricity is required and where there are extreme operating conditions. The loss of water content could entail an increase in viscosity and deionised water would have to be added to recover its properties. It is specially suitable for hydraulic systems which due to their characteristics or location are exposed to fire risk and where the fluid does not exceed a temperature of 60ºC. It is therefore a high-safety fluid for mining, the steel industry, manufacturing industries (cast iron or plastic deformation of elements such as forges or presses).
