SingleCase of 6

Overview

Aeroshell Fluid 4 is a mineral oil based hydraulic fluid containing an oxidation inhibitor and a non-zinc anti-wear additive. It is dyed red for identification and leak detection purposes. It may be used in aviation and industrial hydraulic systems where very low temperature flow properties are desired and synthetic rubber seals are in use. It is not recommended for systems using natural rubber seals.

Applications

  • Aeroshell Fluid 4 may be used in aircraft applications where a MIL-H-5606A (obsolete) specified hydraulic fluid is required.
  • Aeroshell Fluid 4 may also be used in industrial and mobil hydraulic systems when extremely low startup temperatures are expected.
  • Aeroshell Fluid 4 can also be used in hydraulic systems calling for non-zinc type hydraulic fluids in low temperature applications.
  • NOTE: Use Aeroshell Fluid 41 in aviation hydraulic systems specifying MIL-H-5606G approved “super clean” hydraulic fluids

I have been ordering supplies from AS for decades. I have NEVER received a 1 gal container of anything that wasnt damaged. I once had to go to a local paint store to buy a new can to replace one that was so badly damaged that it wouldnt seal after being opened the first time.

Q: What is the difference between Aeroshell fluid 4 and 41?

Aeroshell 4 is MIL-H-5606A and 41 is the "super clean" Mil-h-5606h.

Q: Is 5606A compatible with 5606H hydraulic fluid?

Yes, 5606A is our canned down version of 5606H. We cannot call it out as 5606H because it is no longer in the manufacturer packaging.
