Fluid Forensics Averts Potential Catastrophe (Hydraulics & Pneumatics Magazine)

Valley Forge, PA – August 14, 2017 –

Houghton's Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluids were recently featured in a Hydraulics & Pneumatics Magazine article posted on August 10, 2017 titled “Fluid Forensics Averts Potential Catastrophe”.

The article features a real life situation involving one of Houghton's steel mill customers and highlights the importance of regular fluid analysis on Fire Resistant Hydraulic Fluids.

“The fluid analysis helped the customer advert disaster. Had the contaminated polyol ester fluid come in contact with an ignition source, a significant fire could have resulted. We contacted our technical representative servicing the account and told him the severity of the situation. The customer was extremely grateful that the sample analysis prevented a potential disaster.
