Why Water Hydraulics Efficient Water Hydraulics is a more efficient way to transmit fluid power. Water is incompressible with no energy loss attributable to fluid compression. Safe A Water Hydraulics based system is naturally fire resistant. Advertised “fire resistant fluid” can be atomized under pressure, while water is truly non-flammable. Proven Water Hydraulics is a proven technology and is being used extensively throughout many industries today, such as steel, aluminum, mining, medical, hydro power and many more as the list continues to grow. Green Water Hydraulics accomplishes the same work as traditional oil based systems, but completely eliminates all environmental concerns associated with operation. Leaks in oil based hydraulic systems can be detrimental while water based hydraulic leaks are harmless to our environment.
