Hydraulic Systems

Hydraulic systems are widely used to transmit power in the offshore industry

Hydraulic systems are found throughout an offshore installation: on cranes, drill floor power units and hydraulic ring mains. They are often located where leakage or spillage can escape into the marine environment. High pressures and large flow rates increase the environmental risk in the event of a hose failure. That’s why Castrol’s range includes environmentally responsible hydraulic oils. 

Reliable power transmission requires the use of highly stable hydraulic fluids with excellent anti-wear performance. 

Always check your equipment manual and consult with a Castrol Technical Service Engineer to choose the right product for the right application.
