Flamex is a premium-quality, water-in-oil inverted emulsion, fire-resistant hydraulic fluid for hydraulic systems such as those found in underground mining, steel mill equipment and general industry in which fire hazard and personal safety concerns require water content for fire control.
Flamex is premixed and ready to use. It contains 47-50% by weight water in oil. The oil provides a continuous outer layer to protect the hydraulic system from rust, corrosion and wear. The water provides excellent fire resistance in case of leakage. Thus, Flamex offers an extra margin of safety when compared to conventional petroleum hydraulic oils.
Flamex meets or exceeds US Steel Requirement No. 168 for inverted emulsions and is an approved industrial fluid by FM Global.
