Castrol Optileb HY 32 - Food Grade Hydraulic Oils - 3770



Castrol Optileb HY 32 is primarily a non-toxic hydraulic fluid, manufactured solely from FDA (United States Food and Drugs Administration) listed ingredients for use within the food processing industry, particularly where incidental contact with foodstuffs may occur. Optileb HY 32 is USDA H1 / NSF Approved certificate no. 134151.

NSF-H1 approved Hydraulic range meeting DIN 51524 part 2 HLP.


Application

Castrol Optileb HY grades have excellent anti-wear performance and can be used in hydraulic systems with all types of pumps and motors at their rated speeds and pressures. They are extremely resistant to water wash and offer excellent corrosion protection, making them also suitable for use as a light lubricating oil in wet environments or in applications where equipment is frequently washed down. It is recommended that systems being converted to Optileb HY grades are thoroughly drained and flushed before filling to prevent contamination with previous hydraulic fluid.
Optileb HY 32 is ideal for use as an airline lubricant for the lubrication of compressed air powered equipment for food and beverage processing and packaging. It is suitable for use with both manual and automatically lubricated airlines. Optileb HY 32 prevents scum build-up and vane scorching in airline motors


Advantages

  • Contain only FDA listed raw materials - Authorised by USDA for Category H1 service
  • Non staining, Non toxic - Food grade lubricant
