Abstract:

In 2001-2002, testing was conducted to determine if commercially available, biodegradable, bio-based hydraulic fluid could meet or exceed the performance requirements in military combattactical hydraulic fluid specifications MIL-PRF 46170 MIL-PRF 6083. In 2005, the TARDEC Fuels and Lubricants Technology Team evaluated the same bio-based, biodegradable hydraulic fluid to determine the effects of long term storage.
