Features

Chevron Hydraulic Oils AW are formulated with refined paraffinic base oils. They provide excellent antiwear protection, oxidation and corrosion inhibition, as well as foam and aeration suppression. All grades have excellent demulsibility characteristics.

Hydraulic systems, due to the nature of their operation, experience accelerated wear unless they are protected by clean, high quality antiwear hydraulic oils. Surging pressures in pumps and valves can increase metal-to-metal contact unless antiwear protection is present. The antiwear additives in Chevron Hydraulic Oils AW create a protective film on the metal surfaces. This protective film minimizes metal-to-metal contact, which is most severe in vane- and gear-type pumps. As hydraulic pressures increase over 1000 psi, the need for antiwear protection increases proportionally.

Applications

Chevron Hydraulic Oils AW are versatile lubricants available in ISO viscosity grades 32, 46 and 68.

ISO 32, 46 and 68 grades are most commonly used for hydraulics with vane-, piston-, or gear-type pumps, especially where pressures exceed 1000 psi. They can also be used to lubricate lightly loaded reciprocating compressors
