Eastman™ Skydrol® 5 Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluid
Eastman™ Skydrol® 5 Fire-Resistant Hydraulic Fluid from SkyGeek features a new type of phosphate ester base that slows hydrolysis and oxidation, prolonging operational life. Your hydraulic fluid and reducing maintenance demands. The hydraulic fluid includes a variety of additives, including anti-oxidants that are designed to minimize the contribution of oxidation to fluid degradation. Because Skydrol® 5 is more resistant to oxidation than other types of hydraulic fluids, it can operate for longer periods of time and at higher temperatures than other brands. Order Skydrol® 5 in quart, gallon or five-gallon containers.
FeaturesSkydrol 5 has been designed to provide the same erosion protection characteristics at 275°F/135°C that Skydrol Type IV fluids have demonstrated at 225°F/107°C. Skydrol 5 displays outstanding erosion protection and reliable pump performance at these elevated temperatures.
Airframe manufacturers and operators are becoming more conscious of the benefits of weight saving in today’s competitive environment. Any weight that can be removed from an aircraft translates to increased payload and/or fuel savings. Skydrol 5 sets a new standard as the lowest density phosphate-ester based hydraulic fluid.
The density of Skydrol 5 is lower than the density of existing Type IV fluids. Typical weight savings per aircraft model are given in the table. The use of Skydrol 5 can translate into 5 to 120 pounds of weight savings depending on the aircraft model. This weight saving will lead directly to reduced fuel burn!
