XL-5146 provides a safer working environment for those applications where hydraulic piping might
rupture and spray fluid onto hot surfaces and ignite with resultant hazard to
plant personnel and equipment.

XL-5146 is a Group 1 Factory Mutual approved fluid and is approved by the Canadian Centre
for Mineral and Energy Technology (CANMET) for use in underground mining


• Lubricating agents provide good anti-wear characteristics.

• Corrosion inhibited to protect ferrous and non-ferrous components; both liquid
and vapor phases.

• More environmentally manageable than other fire resistant fluids.

• Low pour point


• Protects pumps and system components from premature wear and failure.

• Extends equipment life, reduces downtime and maintenance costs.

• More acceptable in today’s environmentally conscious society.

• Ease of start up over a broad operating range.
