Vickers Hydrox 550 sterntube fluid
Sterntube Lubricants delivering superior performance and wear protection even when water ingress occurs. HYDROX 550 have been specifically designed for use in sterntube and stabiliser applications where there is potential for fluid loss or water ingress to occur. Designed primarily for use where lip type seals and other circulatory oil feed systems are in operation.
HYDROX 550 is also recommended for use as a combined lubricant and hydraulic oil for certain controllable pitch propeller systems.
Forms emulsions with water which may enter the lubrication system. These emulsions remain fluid and continue to provide a high standard of lubrication and corrosion protection.
Suitable for use in sterntube systems fitted with circulatory oil feed systems.
Suitable for use where Fluoroelastomers or Nitrile elastomeric materials are used for sealing.
Compatible with most commercially available engine oils used for sterntube lubrication.
