AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil (BHO) is a premium performance hydraulic
oil designed to biodegrade when subjected to sunlight, water and microbial activity.
Manufactured with a high quality blend of oleic vegetable oils and customized synthetic
esters, it meets the U.S. Federal bio-based procurement guidelines as defined in
Section 9002 of the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (FSRIA).
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil exhibits high biodegradability and low aquatic
toxicity, along with superior oxidative stability, low temperature performance and
outstanding results in laboratory and extended duration pump testing. It contains
antioxidants that ensure long oil life and foam inhibitors that promote problem-free
operation. It is hydrolytically stable and ideal for use where water contamination
is a problem.
Carefully designed additives help prevent pump wear and protect critical components
from rust. AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil meets the stringent Vickers M-2950-S
and I-286-S hydraulic oil specifications.
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is recommended for stationary and
mobile applications using gear, vane and piston hydraulic systems operating under
high pressure and temperatures up to 180°F. It should also be used where high biodegradability
and low aquatic toxicity are desired. Typical applications include construction,
logging and farming equipment, lawn and turf care or anywhere leaking, spills or
ruptured hydraulic lines may present an environmental hazard.
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is compatible with most synthetic and petroleum
based hydraulic oils. However, to ensure proper performance, it is recommended systems
be drained and flushed prior to installing AMSOIL BHO.
