Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic oil 68- 55 gallon drum
Formerly Known As: Neptune® AW 68
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid 68
• Polyalkylene glycol (PAG) based
• Readily Biodegradable
100% Water Soluble and Readily Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids are fully synthetic PAG (Polyalkylene Glycol) based, non-aqueous hydraulic
fluids. These fluids are formulated from a high VI, fully synthetic base stock, coupled with a non-metallic additive
package that provides the properties demanded by high-performance hydraulic systems. These fluids also have
excellent low temperature properties and are resistant to oxidative and thermal degradation.
Performance, Features & Benefits
· Excellent wear protection
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids have exceptional load
carrying anti-wear performance over a wide range of
temperatures. The ISO 68 provides antiwear performance
based on FZG test results.
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid 68 does not cause a
sheen and is compliant with the US Clean Water Act Sheen
· Water Solubility
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids are heavier than
water and dissolve completely.
· Hydrolytic Stability
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids will not hydrolyze in
the presence of water. This protects hydraulic systems from
decreased equipment life and potential system failure due
to the presence of harmful acids (increased Total Acid
· All Weather Service
With high viscosity indices and low pour points. Shell
Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids may be used year-round,
eliminating season changeovers. One Shell Biodegradable
Hydraulic Fluid may replace multiple viscosity grade oils.
· Material Compatibility
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids are typically not
soluble with petroleum-based oils. The fluids are compatible
with seals and hoses commonly found in hydraulic systems.
Contact Shell for more detailed compatibility information
related to paints, plastics, and elastomers.
Fluids can be used in industrial, marine and mobile
equipment, including high-pressure systems, systems with
servo valves and all robotics.
Specifications, Approvals & Recommendations
· VGP 2013
Shell Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluids meet United States
Environmental Protection Agency's 2013 Vessel General
Permit requirements for use in marine applications. When
compared to conventional mineral oils they will have reduced
environmental impact in the event of a leak or accidental
