Bio-Ultimax 1000, by Renewable Lubricants Inc., Hartville, Ohio, offers a safe alternative with a biosynthetic formula that directly replaces mineral oil based hydraulic fluids. The product has a flash point of 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

This 200-degree cushion can mean the difference between safety and catastrophe when a hydraulic hose breaks and sprays a hot running engine. Bio-Ultimax 1000 is available in various weights including ISO 32, 46, 68 and 100.

In addition to significantly higher flash points across the entire range, these bio-based products are safer for employees to handle. Should a hose break or a seal fail on a jobsite, the cleanup can be a nightmare for equipment with traditional hydraulic fluids.
