Ecosure EAF 22, 32, 46, 68, 100
For water tight doors, ramps, platforms, davits, cranes, winches and capstans... ECOSURE EAF is a range of environmentally acceptable, anti-wear hydraulic fluids. These HEES fluids are based on renewable esters and use state-of-theart ashless, zinc-free additive technology. This range of products meets the requirements stipulated in ISO 15380 for Environmentally Acceptable Hydraulic Fluids.
The ECOSURE EAF range does not use viscosity index improvers, so will not shear down in use.
ECOSURE EAF fluids show biodegradability of greater than 60% in the 28 day OECD 301B test, and are considered non-toxic in the marine environment.
- Extended fluid life resulting in less equipment downtime
- Improved lubricity resulting in less wear and longer pump life
- Good extreme temperature performance (-35°C to +100°C)
- High VI ensuring the fluid remains within the desired viscosity over a broader temperature range
- Good oxidative and thermal stability resulting in less fluid thickening and system failures
- Strong demulsification giving excellent water separation

Good oxidation properties giving excellent in-service lifetime, easily exceeding other
biodegradable hydraulic fluids and many mineral oil based fluids. Wear Protection Gives excellent pump protection to meet the demands of modern hydraulic systems. Passes the demanding V104C, 35VQ25 and T6H20C pump tests. Approved by Eaton to 03-401-2010 Rev1 and Parker Hannifin Denison as HF1, HF2 and HF6 fluids. Very good anti-wear and FZG scuffing performance (>LS12)
Good corrosion performance with Steel and Copper
Is compatible with standard NBR1, HNBR and FKM seal elastomer and it should not be used in systems with neoprene, butyl rubber and EPDM.
Separates readily from water, allowing easy water removal if contaminated.
Good hydrolytic stability, outperforms similar products in the Rolls Royce 1006 Hydrolytic Stability test. When used for prolonged periods in the presence of water at medium to high operating temperatures, hydrolysis will occur. In common with other biodegradable ester fluids, water content must be kept below 1000 ppm.
Passes the foam test requirements of ISO 15380.
Passes the air release requirements of ISO 15380 reducing the risk of pump damage
Viscosity Index (VI)
The ECOSURE EAF range has an excellent viscosity temperature profile and unlike many high VI mineral hydraulic fluids, does not use viscosity index improvers, so will not shear down in use.
Miscible with mineral oil, but in accordance with good practice, it is recommended that the previous oil be fully drained. Where the previous oil has shown significant signs of
ageing or a propensity to foam, or where carry over is more than 5%, a flush fill should be considered.
VGP & ECOLABEL EU Ecolabel licence number UK/027/017 has been awarded to the ECOSURE EAF range
The EU Ecolabel is a label of environmental excellence that is awarded to products and services meeting high environmental standards throughout their life cycle: from raw material extraction, to production, distribution and disposal. These Ecolabel hydraulic fluids, based on synthetic esters, are typically used in water tight doors, ramps, platforms, davits, cranes, winches and capstans where there is potential for fluid loss to occur to the marine environment.
ECOSURE EAF 68 achieves over 330 minutes in the ASTM D-2272 RPVOT oxidation test, demonstrating greater performance and longer fluid life than many competing mineral and biodegradable hydraulic fluids. ECOSURE EAF exhibits excellent low temperature performance with a pour point of < -48°C, making it particularly suitable for use in deck equipment exposed to very cold climates.
