- Extended service life - Outstanding oxidation stability of the diester base fluid and inhibitor system resists oil breakdown at the elevated temperatures encountered in compressor service, permitting oil drain intervals to be extended beyond those achieved with conventional lubricants. Low sludge forming tendency and a high solvency for deposits that help to keep compressor parts clean even under severe service conditions
- Protection at high and low temperatures - Diester base fluid ensures an effective oil film to protect loaded parts against wear under both high temperature operating conditions and during low temperature start-up. Higher flash points, fire points, and auto ignition temperatures provide greater margin of safety as compared to conventional mineral oil products. The inhibitor system provides good rust and corrosion protection
Cetus DE oils are used for portable and stationary rotary screw, rotary vane, and reciprocating compressors. While specific manufacturer recommendations vary, the ISO 68 grade is most commonly used for rotary compressors, while higher viscosity grade is preferred for reciprocating units. Also suited for the lubrication of anti-friction bearing assemblies operating under high temperature conditions (e.g. in fans, blowers and process pumps).
Not recommended for use in breathing air compressors.
These oils can be used in compressors with the following gases: process air, benzene, butadiene, carbon dioxide (dry), carbon monoxide, ethylene, furnace (crack) gas, helium, hydrocarbon gases, hydrogen, inert gases, methane, natural gas, nitrogen, propane, sulfur hexafluoride, and synthesis gas.
Always confirm that the product selected is consistent with the original equipment manufacturer's recommendation for the equipment operating conditions and customer's maintenance practices.
