1. Good Thermal and Oxidation Stability
The robust oxidation stability promotes high temperature performance and protection, even in case of high output oil flooded screw air compressors. In this type of compressor, the lubricant is not only subject to the high temperatures resulting from the compression but also mixed with air. This promotes oil oxidation, where a standard mineral based lubricant cannot always offer satisfactory drain interval any longer. Cetus PAO continues to offer extended drain potential.
The thermal stability further enables a low carbon deposit formation tendency, maintaining compressor performance and keeping discharge lines and air vessels clean, even under severe operating conditions.
2. Long Machinery Life and Maximum Compressor Efficiency
The high viscosity index and load carrying capacity help to maintain effective lubrication and minimize wear on highly loaded parts, at both low and high operating temperatures. An effective inhibitor system further provides excellent rust and corrosion protection.
3. Anti-Foam and Air Release Properties
The air release properties and very low foam tendency aid performance in oil rotary air compressor and turbocharger applications.
4. Low Evaporation Loss
The low evaporation rate helps to reduce oil carryover and guarantees minimum oil consumption.
