Features

The Mobil DTE 10 Excel Series hydraulic oils provide outstanding hydraulic system efficiency; ultra keep clean performance, and a high degree of fluid durability. The hydraulic efficiency feature can lead to reduced energy consumption for both industrial and mobile equipment, reducing operating costs and improving productivity. Their excellent oxidation and thermal stability can help to extend oil and filter change intervals while helping to ensure clean systems. Their high level of anti-wear properties and excellent film strength characteristics result in a high degree of equipment protection that not only results in fewer breakdowns but helps improve production capacity.

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Excellent Hydraulic Efficiency Potentially reduced energy consumption or increased system responsiveness
Ultra Keep Clean Performance Reduced system deposits leading to reduced machine maintenance and increased component life
Shear Stable, High Viscosity Index Sustained component protection over a wide temperature
Oxidation and Thermal Stability Extends fluid life even under harsh operating conditions
Good compatibility with elastomers and seals Long seal life and reduced maintenance
Anti-wear properties Helps reduce wear and protects pumps and components for extended equipment life
Excellent Air Separation Characteristics Helps prevent aeration and cavitation damage in low residence time systems
Multi metal compatibility Helps ensure excellent performance and protection with a wide variety of component metallurgy

Applications

  • Industrial and mobile equipment hydraulic systems operating at high pressures and temperatures in critical applications
  • Hydraulic systems subject to deposit build-up such as sophisticated Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machines, particularly where close clearance servo-valves are used
  • Systems where cold start-up and high operating temperatures are typical
  • Systems requiring a high degree of load-carrying capability and anti-wear protection
  • Machines employing a wide range of components using various metallurgy

Excellent service
This oil is what is required for my grasshopper mower. The local dealer wanted $21qt and i need 10qt. I bought it from the lubricant store and got twice that for only $127. It was shipped to me in kansas city in only two days. These guys are great.
