Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids stand as specialized, top-tier hydraulic lubricants meticulously designed to excel in the most demanding conditions encountered in high-horsepower hydraulic systems. These fluids are engineered to handle extreme operating temperatures, pressures, power densities, and fluid flow rates commonly associated with such systems.

The exceptional performance of these oils is achieved through a unique combination of anti-wear, detergent, and highly shear-stable viscosity-improving additives. They are further fortified with proven inhibitors to combat rust, oxidation, corrosion, and foam formation. Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids are recognized for their longevity and dependable service characteristics.

These fluids are particularly well-suited for applications where exceptional filterability and stability in terms of hydrolysis and emulsification are crucial.

However, it’s important to note that Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids are not typically recommended for use as lubricants in compressors, circulating systems, bearings, general-purpose lubrication, or enclosed gears, unless these applications specifically demand extreme high-pressure load capabilities. In such cases, Vesta Compressor Oils are advised for optimal performance.


Hydraulic systems operating under extreme conditions, with high pressures, power densities, and temperatures, demand specialized protection to ensure longevity and reliability. Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids are engineered with anti-wear additives to excel in these demanding environments, particularly in high-horsepower hydraulic pumps operating at pressures up to 28,000 kPa (4000 psi).

These advanced oils offer several advantages:

1. Enhanced Performance: Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids enable hydraulic systems to deliver prolonged, trouble-free service. They effectively handle increased horsepower, elevated temperatures, reduced oil volume reservoirs, and shorter de-aeration times.

2. Exceptional Filterability: Even in the presence of moisture contamination, Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids maintain excellent filterability. Unlike some lubricants that can cause deposition products leading to filter system blockages, these fluids remain stable, preventing pump starvation, premature wear, cavitation, and equipment failure.

3. Temperature Resilience: Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids are multi-grade oils, exhibiting minimal viscosity changes with temperature fluctuations. This property is particularly valuable in high-horsepower hydraulic systems, as it ensures a consistent, full-bodied, wear-reducing lubricating film compared to conventional fluids that thin out at high temperatures. This stability is maintained by a highly shear-stable viscosity improver (VI) unique to Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids.

4. Seal Compatibility: With a high aniline point, these fluids are compatible with synthetic rubbers, extending the life of seals and preventing leaks.

5. Oxidation Resistance: Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids incorporate potent anti-oxidation inhibitors, which significantly reduce oxidation, preventing corrosion-related issues. This results in longer hydraulic life, consistent control valve operation, reduced filter plugging, and minimized downtime.

6. Multi-Metal Compatibility: These fluids are formulated to be compatible with various metals, effectively controlling wear and corrosion in copper and aluminum alloys commonly used in high-performance pumps. Corrosion inhibitors and metal passivators provide additional protection against corrosion, ensuring the longevity of steel and other susceptible metals.

7. Anti-Foam Properties: Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids contain anti-foam additives that swiftly separate entrained air from the fluids. This prevents metal-to-metal contact that can lead to wear and damage.

In conclusion, Hydraulic HVI Blue Fluids offer comprehensive protection and superior performance in high-stress hydraulic systems, promoting equipment longevity and minimizing operational disruptions.
