Fire resistant phosphate ester type fluids.

We are now ICL-IP.††Our heritage company names include ICL Supresta, Akzo Nobel Phosphorus Chemical and Stauffer Specialty Chemicals.  This website is dedicated solely to support our Fyrquel® fire resistant fluid product supply and customer information needs.

Fyrquel® Fluids Description & Application
Fyrquel® fluids are phosphate ester type biodegradable synthetic non aqueous fire resistant fluids available in a range of viscosities. Phosphate ester type fluids offer self extinguishing fire resistance that is needed for critical applications.  

  • Steam turbine electro-hydraulic control systems
  • Gas Turbine Lubricant
  • Steel and aluminum furnace hydraulics
  • Die cast hydraulics
  • Reciprocating air compressors

Note about other types of synthetic fluids that are marketed as fire resistant but burn like mineral oil once ignited

Other types of synthetic fluids are not self extinguishing. Only phosphate ester types are self extinguishing. Other types of synthetic fluids are marketed as offering comparable fire resistant but actually are easily shown only slightly more difficult to ignite compared to petroleum oil and when ignited readily propagate flame. These fluids do not self extinguish, should not be recommended for critical fire safety applications and are not even close substitutes for phosphate ester type fluids. The difference is easily shown by industry fire tests and by simple demonstration.
