The Lubrizol Corporation on January 6 announces the launch of HydraulicFacts.com, a new Web site dedicated to providing current, comprehensive information on hydraulic fluids and systems. Lubrizol created HydraulicFacts.com to serve as a reliable guide to the hydraulic market as it continues to evolve and innovate. The site includes news and industry trends; commentary from leading equipment manufacturers and an education center featuring information on the role of fluids in system performance, as well as updates on industry standards, OEM specifications and changes and legislation and regulations.
Rob Profilet, a Lubrizol global commercial manager for industrial additives, sees great potential in HydraulicFacts.com as a global industry resource.
“For many years, hydraulic fluids were considered steady performers that didn’t change much,” he says. “That’s no longer true in today’s fast-paced market. Hydraulic systems are operating under increasingly difficult conditions and fluid technology is expected to keep up with this demanding new reality. HydraulicFacts.com provides a one-stop resource for answers in a changing and dynamic marketplace.”
Visitors to the site, www.hydraulicfacts.com, can register for news alerts and industry information.
