Circulating Oils and Hydraulic Oils

Our purchasing department want to change our oil supplier from Mobil to Houghton.
Some oils we use are Mobil DTE light, and Mobil DTE 24, both oils have a viscocity of 32 but the DTE light is a circulating oil and we use this oil on precision bearing spindles with a speed of 10000rpm and the DTE 24 we use for our smaller hydraulic tanks such as horizonral CNC lathes, on our larger units we use DTE 25.
Houghton wants to sell us Hydro HP 32 to replace both of these oils.
Can someone tell me if this is the right thing to do and if not why not.
