Hydraulics for Commercial Vehicles

Castrol understands the importance of choosing the right hydraulic fluid for your fleet. That is why we offer a wide range designed to protect and improve the efficiency of various hydraulic systems.

 

Castrol has developed a range of hydraulic fluids to meet performance standards required by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). This includes products that can offer:

  • Improved oxidation stability to accommodate higher operating temperatures
  • Improved air release, foam control and water separation to handle smaller reservoirs and reduced cycle times
  • Improved dry/wet filterability due to reduced filter pore size and tolerance to water contamination
  • Better hydrolytic stability to handle water contamination
  • Extended pump life to meet Denison T6H20C pump performance
  • Increased drain intervals requiring the lubricants to retain original performance longer

Our ranges include engine oils that meet – and exceed – OEM specifications for Caterpillar, Cummins, Mack and Volvo.

Is all hydraulic fluid the same?

Castrol’s Liquid Engineers have developed a range of hydraulic fluids to meet performance standards required by Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). These include products that meet recent changes in hydraulic fluid formulation driven by industry trends and OEMs:

  • Improved oxidation stability to accommodate higher operating temperatures
  • Improved air release, foam control and water separation to handle smaller reservoirs and reduced cycle times
  • Improved dry/wet filterability due to reduced filter pore size and tolerance to water contamination
  • Better hydrolytic stability to handle water contamination
  • Extended pump life
  • Increased drain intervals, which requires the fluids to retain original performance longer

CASTROL DUAL RANGE™ HV

 

This line includes exceptional multi-viscosity hydraulic fluids that provide proven anti-wear protection coupled with very shear-stable polymers and anti-foam additives for a balanced package.

CASTROL HYSPIN® AWS (FORMERLY PARADENE AW)

This premium, anti-wear oil is suitable for hydraulically activated equipment that utilizes high-performance pumps. Very effective anti-wear additives allow this fluid to meet or exceed industry OEM vane, gear, and piston pump specifications.

CASTROL HYSPIN® VG (FORMERLY PARADENE R&O)

This fluid has been formulated with premium products containing carefully chosen additives to ensure outstanding long-term performance. They meet today’s stringent industry requirements through a combination of a high-viscosity-index base oil, foam, rust and corrosion inhibitors, and a special oxidation inhibitor.

CASTROL BLUE HYDRAULIC PLUS

This fluid meets several severe industry requirements including the Denison (T6H20C) “hybrid” test that incorporates both vane and piston pumps under wet and dry conditions over 600 hours.

Castrol Anvol SWX™ 

This is a fire-resistant hydraulic fluid formulated to work in high-pressure hydraulic systems up to 7,500 psi. The Anvol SWX line provides gear, vane, and piston pumps with protection against wear equivalent to that of mineral oils.

Castrol Performance Bio HE

This oil is formulated from vegetable oils to be more environmentally acceptable than traditional mineral-based hydraulic fluids. Since hydraulic systems are prone to leakage due to high pressures, Castrol Performance Bio HE is an excellent hydraulic fluid in applications where leakage could cause water or soil contamination.

Castrol Aerial Lift Fluid 

This is a specially formulated multi-viscosity high-performance hydraulic fluid. It is designed to provide outstanding performance in mobile lift applications where ambient temperatures vary widely and system operation, reliability, and protection are mandatory.
