Petro-Canada Lubricants Inc., a Suncor business, has secured an exclusive commitment from McCloskey International Ltd. to use its newly reformulated HYDREX hydraulic fluids for manufacturing of machinery and as factory fill. As an early adopter of the new fluids, McCloskey’s two-tier endorsement includes product applications for its own machinery, as well as the approval to use HYDREX in the equipment they manufacture (OEM approval). Additionally, McCloskey will now be featuring HYDREX as part of its outgoing promotion and communication on their equipment.

“HYDREX has been a strategic choice for maintenance managers for more than a decade. McCloskey’s endorsement is a reflection of our successful partnership garnered by our products’ superior performance,” explained Robert Farthing, category manager, lubricants, Suncor. “Our newest reformulation has proven to deliver up to two times better wear protection and up to three times longer oil life over the competition for our customers.”

With the latest reformulation, HYDREX strengthens its promise to deliver premium wear protection, extreme weather performance, system energy efficiencies and fluid life durability.

“Across North America, we are endorsing HYDREX because the right hydraulic fluid can lead to greater productivity and reduced operating costs,” explained Kevin Ruppert, McCloskey International Ltd. “With longer oil life, we can extend drain intervals and save time and money on change-outs, shut-downs and product for our equipment – and we encourage our customers to do the same. We are confident in Petro-Canada Lubricants’ ability to continue to innovate and be a leader in our industry.”

Since 1986, McCloskey International Ltd. has offered complete solutions for crushing, screening and recycling equipment. They have been recognized as innovators with their patented counterweight conveyor system and comprehensive lineup of crushers, trommels and screeners.
