Provides Outstanding Protection and High Biodegradability
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil (BHO) is a premium performance hydraulic oil designed to
biodegrade when subjected to sunlight, water and microbial activity. Manufactured with a high
quality blend of oleic vegetable oils and customized synthetic esters, it meets the U.S.
Federal bio-based procurement guidelines as defi ned in Section 9002 of the Farm Security
and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (FSRIA).
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil exhibits high biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity,
along with superior oxidative stability, low temperature performance and outstanding results
in laboratory and extended duration pump testing. It contains anti-oxidants that ensure long
oil life and foam inhibitors that promote problem-free operation. It is hydrolytically stable
and ideal for use where water contamination is a problem.
Carefully designed additives help prevent pump wear and protect critical components from rust.
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil meets the stringent Vickers M-2950-S and I-286-S hydraulic
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is recommended for stationary and mobile applications using
gear, vane and piston hydraulic systems operating under high pressure and temperatures up to
180°F. It should also be used where high biodegradability and low aquatic toxicity are desired.
Typical applications include construction, logging and farming equipment, lawn and turf care
or anywhere leaking, spills or ruptured hydraulic lines may present an environmental hazard.
AMSOIL Biodegradable Hydraulic Oil is compatible with most synthetic and petroleum based
hydraulic oils. However, to ensure proper performance, it is recommended systems be drained
and flushed prior to installing AMSOIL BHO.
