High Velocity Barrier Fluid

Halocarbon High Velocity Barrier Fluid is recommended for use with high velocity rotatory equipment. These oils are typically used in the dual or tandem sealing systems of centrifugal and rotary pumps employed in the petroleum, natural gas, and chemical industries, which operate at rotational velocities approaching 1200 to 3600 rpms.

Halocarbon MSHV04 and MSHV06 are fluorinated fluids that are designed for superior safety and reliability, making them a trusted choice for lubricating and cooling mechanical seal faces in hazardous chemical processes and operations. These barrier fluids are chemically inert and ideally suited for use in handling or processing strong acids or bases, flammable solvents, hydrocarbons, corrosive chemicals, strong oxidizers, and reactive gasses.

Halocarbon MSHV04 and MSHV06 are specifically formulated to have low viscosities. This makes MSHV04 and MSHV06 particularly effective for use in low-temperature applications and in systems employing carbon-containing seal faces, where higher viscosity fluids may cause blistering.

MSHV04 and MSHV06 are available either with or without a corrosion inhibitor.
