Flame retardant hydraulic oil

Post by DeanLail » Thu Nov 15, 2018 12:14 pm

Our insurance underwriter says that one risk in molding is a small atomized leak of hydraulic oil catching fire. He proposed two solutions. 1. Add an additional E-stop switch at the far end of the machine or away from the machine 2. Use flame retardant hydraulic oil. Has anyone had experience or done either of these? We have always used DTE25 as recommended by the machinery manufacturers and are concerned about changing oil. I don't like the idea of adding an E-stop since that is modifying a safety feature of the machine.
