‘Fire-resistant fluids in power generation’ - .PDF file.

According to Exxonmobil, the importance of fluid selection and maintenance is never more apparent than on the electro-hydraulic controls (EHCs) that are responsible for governing steam supply to turbine generators. High pressures and temperatures dictate the use of fire-resistant fluids to mitigate the potential for dangerous and expensive fires. Phosphate esters are the most common fluid used in EHC systems in power turbine control systems. Phosphate esters used in EHC systems require special care and maintenance compared with mineral oils. Fire-resistant hydraulic fluids are specially formulated lubricants that are more difficult to ignite and do not propagate a flame from an ignition source. Fire-resistant should not be confused with fire-proof, as fire-resistant fluids will still ignite and burn given specific conditions.
