Hyken® Glacial Blu

Low-Pour High-VI Antiwear Hydraulic Oil for Cold Climates


Kendall® Hyken Glacial Blu Hydraulic Fluid is a high-quality, low-viscosity antiwear hydraulic oil specially developed for use in industrial and mobile equipment operating at extremely low temperatures. It has a very high viscosity index and a low pour point for use in arctic conditions.

Features & Benefits

  • Outstanding low-temperature properties
  • Very high viscosity index for use in arctic conditions
  • Good wear protection for hydraulic pumps and motors
  • Resists deposit formation and viscosity increase due to oxidation
  • Protects against rust and corrosion
  • Excellent water-separating properties
  • Good foam resistance
  • High dielectric strength for use in electrical service bucket trucks (cherry pickers)(1)

(1) Note: In order to maintain its high dielectric strength for use as electrical insulating oil, the oil must be kept clean and dry. Contamination with water will significantly decrease the dielectric strength.

Applications

  • Industrial and mobile equipment operating in cold climates
  • Bucket trucks (cherry pickers) used for servicing electrical power lines or for tree-trimming
  • Surface mining equipment
