Hydraulic Fluids

Hydraulic Fluids

NovaSpec™ Base Oils can provide the foundation for many hydraulic fluid types, including all industry-standard ISO grades, multigrade, food grade, and Ecolabel products. Hydraulic fluids based on NovaSpec can also be used in the most demanding environments, including those where cold temperatures and environmental concerns push the limits of existing fluids.

Best of all, Novvi has done the formulation work so that you can add sustainable, high-performance hydraulic fluids to your product line with minimal effort.


Lowered Costs

NovaSpec Base Oils impart excellent antiwear and rust-prevention properties. Best-in-class oxidation stability allows operators to lower costs through extended drain intervals and reduced maintenance. The mineral oil compatibility NovaSpec provides also eliminates complications that often occur with other environmentally friendly hydraulic fluids. Operators can top off fluids currently in operation and refill after a mineral oil product drain, without system flushing or concerns about seal compatibility.


Revolutionary Combination

Top-quality NovaSpec Base Oils allow formulations that meet the high-performance requirements of Denison HF-0, as well as the European Ecolabel environmental specifications of biodegradability, renewability, and nontoxicity. NovaSpec-based hydraulic fluids are the only products available that can meet both specifications.

Ecolabel approval also allows Novvi formulations to meet U.S. EPA VGP 2013 specifications for marine applications where lubricants may contact sea water, providing further environmental protection in the event of leakage. They also offer the best choices in construction, agriculture, and forestry settings by reducing environmental risk without compromising performance.
