Chevron Cetus DE 100
Detailed Product Description
Cetus DE oils deliver value through:
- Long life — Cetus DE oils have a low sludgeforming tendency and a high solvency for deposits that help to keep compressor parts clean. Their ability to minimize oil consumption, carry over, varnish, sludge, and deposits; as well as maximize deposit-free valve life helps minimize compressor maintenance and energy costs.
- Ignition safety — Cetus DE oils provide a greater margin of safety than conventional petroleum products because their flash points, fire points, and auto ignition temperatures are much higher. They are not, however, true fire resistant fluids.
Cetus DE oils are synthetic diester-based, oxidation resistant, compressor oils.
Cetus DE oils are used for portable and stationary rotary screw, rotary vane, and reciprocating compressors. While specific manufacturer recommendations vary, the ISO 32 and ISO 68 grades are most commonly used for rotary compressors, while higher viscosity grades are preferred for reciprocating units.
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.
Cetus DE oils can be used in contact with the following seals, paints, and plastics:
- High nitrile Buna N
- Epoxy paint
- Oil-resistant alkyd
Cetus DE 100 is approved by:
- Matsubara Iron Works Co. Ltd, for use as a reciprocating air compressor lubricant.
- Tanabe Pneumatic Machinery Co. Ltd, for use in type H series reciprocating compressors.
