Over 80% of hydraulic fluid pump failures are due to particle contamination. There is a direct correlation between lubricant cleanliness and component life, and clean oil can extend your equipment life up to 5 times longer.

ISO 4406 Cleanliness
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) created the cleanliness code to quantify particulate contamination levels. Engine and pump OEMs have established levels of cleanliness for oils that can be used in their equipment. ISO 4406 is the standard used by OEMs to quantify particulate contamination.
Tiger Oils are 15 times cleaner than traditional hydraulic fluids. Tiger Oils have an ISO cleanliness code of 16/14/11 and do not exceed 17/15/12. Under Parker standards, the only more stringent ISO code is used with aerospace applications. So if you're on the ground, under water, or even in the air (just perhaps not in space), then there is a Colliflower Tiger Oil for your application!
Base oil is the foundation of any lubricating oil's formulation, comprising 75%+ of a multi-viscosity engine oil formulation and 98%+ of the formulation of a mono-grade hydraulic oil. As a result, the type of base oil used can greatly impact the performance of the finished product.
Colliflower Tiger Oils use pure base oils with the following features that will benefit your equipment:
High Viscosity Index: This provides a lower pour point for better low temperature performance and more stable viscosity over a wide range of temperatures.
Crystal Clear, Severely Hydrocracked: This provides exceptional oxidation stability which means there are fewer holes for oxygen to contaminate the base oil. Contamination causes breakdowns that produce sludge, varnish, acids and oil thickening, reducing component effectiveness and component life.
