How Hydraulic Fluids Impact Efficiency

Hydraulic Hero Hydraulic Hero

It’s important to get maximum performance and productivity out of your equipment. The role that hydraulic fluids can play in attaining those goals isn’t obvious and may be missing the mark. With most conventional hydraulic fluids, equipment runs less efficiently. Cycle times are longer; energy is lost. Conventional fluids force you to deal with shorter oil life. There’s more heat, more hose breaks, and more threats to your productivity. Premium hydraulic fluids can solve these issues.

What are some other benefits of Clarity® Synthetic Hydraulic Oil AW and Rando® HDZ?










Long Oil Life

Low Toxicity



• Improved response time

• Expanded temperature operating window

• Improved production with the potential to 

   lower energy cost*

• Excellent wear, rust and corrosion protection

• Excellent hydrolytic stability, water separability, 

   foam inhibition, and filterability

• Excellent thermal and hydrolytic stability

• Outstanding ability to withstand oxidation and 

   high operating temperatures and pressures 

   results in maximum service life for the oil

• Very low, acute aquatic toxicity to both fish and

   vertebrates based on tests of water 

   accommodated fractions



• High Viscosity Index (VI) provides minimum 

   change in viscosity over wide operating 

   temperature range


• Excellent wear, rust and corrosion protection

• Excellent thermal and hydrolytic stability

• Excellent water separability, foam inhibition, and 


• High oxidation stability helps contribute to long 

   oil service life in high pressure hydraulic 


* Improved productivity was shown in side-by-side excavator tests of up to 6.2%. Improved fuel efficiency was shown in excavators and in plastic injection machines of up to 4.5% and 5%, respectively. Comparisons were made to typical single grade hydraulic oil.
