Is AW 46 hydraulic oil the same as ISO 46?

ISO 46 simply refers to the vicosity. AW stands for "Anti Wear". Your AW Hydraulic Oil ISO 46 is going to be the same thing as AW-46. It's just that the words are rearranged in a different order.

In this way, what weight is ISO 46 hydraulic oil?

SAE 10W is equivalent to ISO 32, SAE 20 is equivalent to ISO 46 and 68, and SAE 30 is equivalent to ISO 100. As you can see, there is a bit of a difference between ISO 68 and SAE 30. The viscosity of the fluid largely determines the oil temperatures within which the hydraulic system can safely operate.

Additionally, what is ISO 46 hydraulic fluid? Viscosity is also most often expressed as the fluids ISO number or grade. Common ISO grades for use with hydraulic systems include 32, 46 and 68. This occurs because the detergents can cause water that has condensed into the system to emulsify, preventing it from being seperated from the oil.

Also asked, what is AW 46 hydraulic oil used for?

AW Hydraulic Oil (ISO: 32, 46, 68, 100) AW Hydraulic Oil is premium grade oil designed for use in all hydraulic systems where anti-wear hydraulic oil is recommended. All grades are rust and oxidation inhibited and contain an effective anti-wear additive and anti-foam additives to release entrained air rapidly.

What is the difference between ISO 46 and ISO 68?

The numbers 46 and 68 refer to the ISO Viscosity, and all hydraulic oils sold in Australia use this number grading system. Viscosity is oil's resistance to flow and the grading system relates to this resistance at a temperature of 40 °C. The oil would be thinner and have less resistance to flow on start-up.
