High Water Content Fluids (HFA)

HFA or high water content fluids (HWCF’s) are hydraulic fluids that combine the excellent fire resistant properties of water with lubrication and corrosion protection from an additive concentrate.  Because water is the major component (90% or more) of an HFA fluid, hydraulic equipment using this type of fluid must be capable of operating with a low viscosity fluid.  Water hydraulic equipment, while able to operate with water as the hydraulic medium, will benefit from the use of an HFA concentrate.  HFA concentrates lubricate valves, improve seal life, inhibit corrosion in components and piping, and control bacterial and fungal growth in the system.
