A new hydraulic oil reportedly cleans hydraulic components, last three times longer than other machine fluids, and may help reduce machine noise. Demag Ultra Life fluid from Demag Plastics Group Inc., Strongsville, Ohio, is said to eliminate silicone contamination and reduce oxidation, nitration, and acidity. It also boasts a cleaning effect without robbing the machine of any performance. The new proprietary fluid has a flashpoint of 450 F, 10% higher than other hydraulic machine fluids.
