    Water glycol hydraulic fluids are the most used fire-resistant hydraulic fluids in the world. A selection of commercial water glycol hydraulic fluids were chosen based on their individual chemistry and being representative of the scope of water glycol hydraulic fluid types in use within the general manufacturing industry today. These fluids were then measured by a series of property and performance tests to evaluate key fluid parameters, including pump performance, lubricity, corrosion protection, and wear performance. The results are discussed, with recommendations as to their suitability for use in general industrial applications.
