AQUALINK 300F VER2 can be used as the hydraulic control fluid in both subsea production control applications and in closed-loop BOP control systems on jack-ups and platforms.
It is water soluble and used neat.
Iron, steel, copper, bronze, brass, tin, nickel, stainless steeland anodised aluminium are all compatible. Zinc, cadmium and magnesium are not recommended and should be avoided or replaced.
Seal material properties can vary within a classification depending upon compounding techniques. Compounding can enhance or diminish various properties and characteristics.
In the case of Buna ‘N’ certain formulas will be more resistant than others. This can also be said for some of the urethanes.
Leather and cork are best avoided. Consult your packing and seal supplier for specific recommendations.
AQUALINK 300F VER2 is generally compatible with natural rubber and pure synthetic rubber packing’s and seals such as Buna ‘N’ (Nitrile), Butyl, Viton, Teflon, Nylon and Silicone.
Thermoplastic Hose Liner Material
Hytrel Polyester Elastomer
High temperature compatibility tests have shown that AQUALINK 300F VER2 provides acceptable resistance to physical change in the properties of Hytrel, compared with current water based subsea control fluids.
Likely to have a softening and stripping action on conventional paints. Where conventional paint coatings have to be replaced, those with an acrylic epoxy or silicone base should be suitable.
Borasilic glass micro filters, Cellulose and Phenolic Resin treated filters are suitable for use.
AQUALINK 300F VER2 is filtered to meet NAS1638 Class 6 cleanliness level in the drum.
Further information relating to system’s compatibility is available on request.
The products should be ideally stored in dry conditions.
