Chevron Cylinder Oil W 680
Chevron Cylinder Oil W 680 is recommended for lubrication of compressor cylinders and sliding worm gear surfaces in worm drive gear cases for excellent metal wettability, delivering a protective oil film for maximum protection.
Detailed Product Description
Chevron Cylinder Oils W deliver value through:
- Excellent metal wettability and high film strength for any moisture condition.
- Versatility — Three viscosity grades available to cover the range of steam pressures and temperatures found in industry.
- Minimized inventory — Can be used as worm gear lubricants. Meets AGMA compounded lubricant specifications.
Chevron Cylinder Oils W are designed to meet the needs of emulsifying cylinder oils.
Chevron Cylinder Oils W help provide excellent metal wettability. The combination of oil emulsibility and metal wetting characteristics result in minimum oil consumption rates and maximum oil lubricity in the presence of wet steam or water.
The metal wetting helps ensure an effective lubricant film on the cylinder walls and pistons of steam pump, and also provides the oiliness properties which are extremely important in lubricating the sliding worm gear surfaces in worm drive gear cases.
Compressor manufacturers often recommend cylinder oils for compressor cylinder lubrication. The oiliness of Chevron Cylinder Oils W promotes a metal wetting characteristic that resists the washing action of water and maintains a tenacious oil film on the surface of the compressor cylinder.
Chevron Cylinder Oil W 680 is a higher viscosity lubricant recommended for steam pressures up to 300 psi and temperatures from 218°C to 302°C (425°F to 575°F). Chevron Cylinder Oils W are ideal choices for worm gears. Chevron Cylinder Oils W are recommended for use in underground brine pumps at geothermal power generation facilities.
Chevron Cylinder Oils W 220, 460, and 680 meet the requirements of ANSI/A GMA 9005-E02 for AGMA Lubricant Numbers 5, 7 Compounded, and 8 Compounded, respectively.
