Gazprom Neft hydraulic fluids become the first Russian products to be approved by Bosch Rexroth
Gazpromneft Lubricants — operator of the Gazprom Neft lubricants business — has secured official endorsement from Bosch Rexroth for its premium-class hydraulic oils produced under the Gazprom Neft brand.
Gazprom Neft’s hydraulic oils — with extended change intervals and anti-wear properties — have successfully passed Bosch Rexroth’s new RDE 90235 testing requirements, securing a recommendation for use in modern hydraulic systems designed for intensive usage under variable temperatures (including extreme environments), as well as under excessive loads.
Hydraulic fluids are used in hydraulic-system pumps in various kinds of machinery used in the mining, forestry, oil production, transport, electricity generation, metallurgy, aerospace engineering, plastics and synthetic-resin industries.
Alexander Trukhan, CEO, Gazpromneft Lubricants, commented: “The procedure for securing endorsement from Bosch Rexroth is one of the most complex and lengthy, in comparison with other equipment manufacturers. Gazprom Neft’s hydraulic fluids were subjected to a year of laboratory and bench testing. The endorsement secured is the result of intensive work on the part of Gazpromneft Lubricant’s R&D department, and an unconditional endorsement of the quality of our products, which are now officially recommended for use in the most sophisticated and complex equipment”.
