FR WG 200-D is a premium, water glycol, fire resistant hydraulic fluid which has superior lubricating properties and meets all requirements for a less hazardous fire resistant hydraulic fluid. In addition to its excellent fire resistant properties, this fluid contains a proper additive balance to impart the necessary lubricity, corrosion protection and overall performance demanded by today’s high performance hydraulic systems. The increased performance which FR WG 200-D provides results in extended pump service life and reduced downtime, along with lower maintenance costs. Additional bonus features include: High viscosity index, low pour point, excellent heat transfer, anti-foam properties and complete compatibility with commonly used seals, hoses and metals. In addition, FR WG 200-D is completely compatible in all proportions with other reputable brands of water-glycol fluids.
Fire resistant hydraulic fluids are preferred in a variety of industrial applications, and are required in many (for example: steel and aluminum mills, die casting, off-shore oil rigs, mining, military equipment and forging plants). Water-glycol fluids are not only fire resistant, but also have a low order of toxicity. Water-glycol fluids also have excellent low temperature properties, good shear stability, and are resistant to oxidative and thermal degradation. Sludge and vamish formations are not a problem with FR WG 200-D. FR WG 200-D is recommended for use in all types of hydraulic systems requiring a water-glycol, fire resistant hydraulic fluid. If you want to add FR WG 200-D to another water-glycol, please ask for the assistance of a sales representative regarding compatibility. Hydraulic systems that contain fluids other than water-glycol should be thoroughly flushed by a procedure which we can recommend. Varouh oil's representatives are able to assist in the aspects of conversion assistance.
