Apache will continually work to leverage that reputation with its own technical capability, local market knowledge in-stock inventory levels, and great customer service. We believe this is the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship with Houghton

Apache Oil Company, a locally owned and operated fuel and lubricants distribution company, has partnered with Houghton International, a world leader in high-tech metalworking, hydraulic fluids, and fluid management services. Shortly after Houghton’s acquisition of the Metalworking Fluids Division of Shell Oil Co. in 2011, Apache Oil began distributing Houghton’s premier line of environmentally friendly metalworking fluids to its customers.

A short list of the most popular Houghton products that Apache Oil Company offers to customers includes:

  •     Cosmolubric B-230 — Vegetable oil-based fire-resistant hydraulic fluid that is USDA Certified as a Biobased product composed of renewable materials. It is formulated with additives to enhance corrosion protection, metal passivation and oxidative inhibition.
  •     Hocut 795-H — Heavy-duty chlorine-free machining and grinding fluid that can be used with many machines and metals. It is compatible with hard water, biostable, and provides corrosion protection without staining.
  •     Hocut 801 — Versatile, semi-synthetic coolant for machining and grinding of ferrous and non-ferrous metals. It is clean running and biostable, ensuring a long, odor-free sump life.

Other available Houghton technology products include Adrana D 408, Dromus B and Metalina B 3650 water miscible metalworking fluids; Callina Fluid 1210 cleaner; and Voluta C 400 neat quenching oil.

“Apache Oil’s thorough coverage of the fourth largest city in the U.S., as well as its location in the heart of the energy corridor is beneficial to both us and Houghton,” said Kenny Isbell, President of Apache Oil Co. “Apache values the association with Houghton, a company known for quality products that meet customer needs. Apache will continually work to leverage that reputation with its own technical capability, local market knowledge in-stock inventory levels, and great customer service. We believe this is the beginning of a long and prosperous relationship with Houghton”.
