Oceanic HW Fluids

Oceanic HW fluids are water based hydraulic fluid specifically formulated for use in modern subsea production control systems. Their low viscosity promotes optimum system response, while a sophisticated additive package provides a high degree of protection against wear, corrosion and microbiological degradation. The Oceanic HW fluids have been developed in close consultation with equipment and component manufactures for use worldwide to deliver maximum system safety and reliability.

Erifon Fluids

Erifon Fluids are water based hydraulic fluids specifically formulated for blow-out preventer and hydraulic compensator systems used for drill rig operations.  Erifon fluids exhibit excellent stability, corrosion protection, anti-wear lubrication properties and a high resistance to microbiological attack.
