Compressor/vacuum pump fluids

A line of compressor and vacuum pump fluids based on ultra high-purity synthetic and mineral oil formulations that last up to ten times longer than competitive alternatives is now available from Dow Corning. Marketed under the Molykote® brand name, these fluids are formulated to provide reduced lubricant consumption, longer oil-drain intervals, and extended equipment life – advantages that reduce maintenance costs and effort.
Molykote Compressor and Vacuum Fluids are comprised of unique formulations of synthetic polyalpha olefin (PAO), polyalkylene glycol/polyolester (PAG/POE), polyolester (POE), diester (DE), and ultra high-purity mineral oils that meet or exceed performance specifications for all comparable OEM fill products. Whereas most competitive mineral oils are manufactured by refining, Molykote® brand mineral oils are custom-engineered at a molecular level to formulate a unique, ultra high-purity base oil that meets target performance specifications. In doing so, this process helps eliminate contaminants that can lead to acid development and premature ageing of the oil. Molykote® brand fluids are suited for use in the pulp & paper and food processing industries.
