In non-ferrous production, with operations involving heavy equipment and liquid or hot aluminum, the danger of fire is ever present.

One cause of fire in non-ferrous production plant is the ignition of mineral oil hydraulic fluids. The highest risk of fire in non-ferrous production plant is the operation where the processed materials reach temperatures > 400°C, like in Aluminum production. In most of these processes, hydraulic units are used to operate the equipment, and in many cases, a mineral oil-based hydraulic fluid is used to power the hydraulic unit.

Our HFDu Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluids provide an alternative to mineral based oils in non-ferrous production that minimize fire risk without jeopardizing productivity.
