Product Description

Mobilfluid 316M is a high performance hydraulic oil formulated from carefully selected base oils and a balanced additive system. It is designed to meet requirements of wide range heavy-duty hydraulic and hydrostatic equipment used in on and off-highway applications. It has typical kinematic viscosity of 53.1cSt at 40C, which corresponds to an intermediate grade between the viscosity grades ISO VG 46 and ISO VG 68. It provides possibility to use single hydraulic fluid in systems requiring those two most common viscosity grades.

Features and Benefits

Mobilfluid 316M delivers excellent performance in a wide range of hydraulic systems and components using various multi-metal designs. The product also provides effective low and high ambient temperature performance due to very high viscosity index. Blue color helps to avoid accidental mix with other type of oils. The key benefits include:

Features Advantages and Potential Benefits
Good protection against oil thickening, high temperature deposits and oil degradation Clean hydraulic systems
Helps to protects against vane sticking
Long service performance
Good anti-wear protection Helps to reduce wear and to extend equipment life
Wide temperature range performance Helps to reduce wear at cold start-up temperatures
Effective lubrication film strength at high temperatures
Protects against rust and corrosion Long equipment life and low maintenance costs


  • Wide range of hydraulic and hydrostatic systems where ISO VG 46 or ISO VG 68 are suitable
