MacDermid Offshore Solutions, the leading provider of high-performance and environmentally-friendly products for the offshore oil and gas industry, has released the Erifon THF 32 hydraulic fluid
This fire and explosion-resistant HFC water-based fluid reduces wear and provides exceptional lubricity in motion compensation devices and tensioning equipment in offshore drilling rigs. It offers outstanding technical performance while withstanding extreme compression ignition and stress, meeting stringent military requirements including military spec DEF STAN 91-110.
Erifon THF 32 is a powerful high-viscosity lubricant and corrosion inhibitor that meets all global and environmental compliances, including the US EPA Gulf of Mexico General GMG 290000 Permit requirements for riser tensioner fluids, so customers can use this product safely for any project, regardless of location.
Erifon THF 32's lubricity serves extremely well for extended travel, having withstood a 50,000-kilometer cylinder endurance test from a major cylinder manufacturer. It meets stringent tensioner fluid requirements and is appropriate for use with all cylinder manufacturers' wireline, in-line or direct acting tensioners. The fluid meets all regulations from port to port, so customers do not need to change fluids in the middle of a project. It operates effectively in both warm and cold climates.
Eric Handley, vice president of Technology, said, “Customers can purchase Erifon THF 32 from MacDermid globally, making this safe and reliable fluid accessible for offshore drilling rigs anywhere in the world.”
