Environmentally Friendly Bio-Ultimax 1000 Hydraulic Fluid Outperforms Traditional Hydraulic Fluids

January 2022 Products

Renewable Lubricants presents patented Bio-Ultimax 1000, readily biodegradable biosynthetic formulas which perform like mineral oil based hydraulic fluids, but are environmentally friendly. With oxidation performance comparable to full synthetics, this is one of the safest hydraulic fluids for the environment. Ideal for stationary or mobile environments, Bo-Ultimax super high Viscosity Index (VI) fluids are proven in systems up to 10,000 psi and in systems with ultra-fine filtration. To ensure performance and long life, Renewable Lubricants developed the stringent IsoGreen filtration standard which meets or exceeds the Rexroth pump guidelines for hydraulic fluids. Non-toxic, zinc-free formulations contain no heavy metals.  In addition to enhancing performance, Bio-Ultimax helps companies achieve their sustainability goals. They are ideal for use in all types of hydraulic systems including trash compactors, waste and recycling collection vehicles, hydraulic pumps, pile driving equipment, and more.

With a higher VI than synthetics (Energy Conserving Formulas), Bio-Ultimax 1000 has improved thermal shear stability and increased load capacity. Their extremely low volatility increases the flash and fire safety features, making them safer to use. A direct replacement for mineral oil based hydraulic fluids, Bio-Ultimax is ideal for hydraulic systems where low toxicity, biodegradability, and non-bioaccumulation properties are required. 

These patented biobased hydraulic fluids are formulated to perform in high- and low-pressure hydraulic systems that require Anti-Wear (AW), anti-rust, anti-oxidation, anti-foam, and demulisibility properties. With patented antioxidants (Stabilized™*), these biosynthetics provide improved performance in oxidation stability over standard plant/vegetable/HETG and unsaturated HEES type fluids. They are highly inhibited against moisture and rusting in both fresh and sea water, and pass A and B sequences of the ASTM D-665 Turbine Oil Rust Test. Formulated to provide a longer seal life with reduced oil leakage, this environmentally friendly, zinc-free product meets or exceeds high-pressure pump requirements. 

Very little wear was encountered in field studies and in accelerated pump tests using biobased formulations in Denison T-5D, Vickers 20VQ, 35VQ-25 (M-2950-S), and V-104C (ASTM D-2882), Vickers I-286-S pump stand tests and pressures and temperatures ranging from 2000 to 3000 psi and from 150°to 210°F.  Anti-wear performance exceeds requirements for US Steel 126, 136, and 127, load stage 10 in the FZG (DIN 51354) and GM (LS-2).   

Bio-Ultimax Hydraulic Fluids meet and exceed Federal Specifications for machine tool hydraulic systems and can replace specification MIL-PRF-17672E for ground support equipment. It meets EPA 21013 Vessel General Permit (VGP) guidelines for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs) and should be used in hydraulic systems where low toxicity, biodegradability, and non-bioaccumulation properties are required. 

Renewable Lubricants, Inc. began as a research and development company in 1991, developing high performance products that would directly replace petroleum-based products. Starting from a single corn-based engine oil developed in the inventor’s garage, the company now offers more than 250 products and has over 100 worldwide patents. They manufacture their products as environmentally friendly as possible without sacrificing performance.  For more information on Renewable Lubricants, Inc., contact Benjamin Garmier at (330) 877-9982, or info@RenewableLube.com, or visit www.RenewableLube.com.
