The drain and fill procedure to convert to EnviroLogic products is as simple as the cleaning and maintenance procedure you currently use for scheduled care of your equipment.
A residual amount of petroleum oil will remain in the sump of the equipment. This will have no effect on the performance of the EnviroLogic fluid.
For further detailed equipment flushing procedures, please contact us at (704) 684-6100 for EnviroLogic Changeover Procedure.
Note: EnviroLogic products are not compatible with HEPG products and should not be mixed. Complete draining and cleaning of any HEPG product should be conducted prior to filling with the appropriate EnviroLogic product.
The following information is used to determine the best biodegradable fluid:
- Name and viscosity grade of current fluid used in the hydraulic system
- OEM hydraulic fluid specification or recommendations
- System operating temperature and pressure
- System application specifics
Please refer to our product data sheets for best match or call our technical specialists for recommendation at +1 (704) 684-6100.
Yes, EnviroLogic and petroleum-based fluids can be mixed together. When mixing fluids in a hydraulic power system, environmental benefits of EnviroLogic are reduced in relative proportion to the amount of petroleum-based oil. We recommend draining the system of petroleum oil, flushing with appropriate EnviroLogic product and then refilling the system with recommended EnviroLogic product for maximization of environmental benefits.
EnviroLogic lubricants can be mixed and disposed of in the same waste oil drum as petroleum-based fluids.
We also offer reservoir and equipment decals to help minimize the risk of accidental system contamination.
Based on extensive field use, testing by OEMs and independent laboratories, we can state that our fluids perform equally or superior to their petroleum-based counterparts.
The performance benefits EnviroLogic products offer include:
- Reduced environmental impact (Readily Biodegradable, Minimally Toxic and not Bioaccumulative)
- Equal or better lubricating performance relative to petro-chemical based fluids
- Equal or longer fluid change out intervals compared to incumbent petrochemical based fluids
- Hydraulic component wear protection
- Lower overall total cost of ownership
