Air Line and Pneumatic Tool Oil: RPL-ALO100

Product Description:

The RPL-AL0100 oil is blended using highly refined, hydro-treated, and high viscosity index paraffin base oils with specially designed additives for long lasting lubrication to meet the demanding needs of rotary air tool lubrication and air line operations. It is specifically designed to "out-wet" water and to cling on metal surfaces which effectively eliminates the washing effects of water and prevents rust and corrosion. It surrounds moisture in lines to exhaust from systems without freeze-up or clogging while cleaning pre-existing deposits and build-ups in the lines.

The RPL-AL0100 was developed to meet the needs of rotary and pneumatic air tool lubrication. Whether hand-held or mounted, air and pneumatic tools operate at high speeds and contain a variety of precision parts which derive motion from the energy produced by expanding air including vanes and bearings. Lubrication must be continuous to allow for proper lubrication and, in most cases, protection against high temperature differentials found throughout systems from reservoir to head and through to exhaust sections. These temperature variations are particularly challenging since the decrease that occurs as expanded air cools causes suspended moisture to condense, potentially onto the working surfaces of the air motor or tool which can lead to deposit formation, corrosion, rust and premature wear. The RPL-ALO100 is uniquely designed to meet these challenges. It will flow smoothly and mist freely.

Typical applications include reciprocating jackhammers, rock drills and rotary tools such as wrenches, grinders and drills.

Features and Benefits:

• High film strength withstands the high pressures in sliding vane air motors

• Special emulsifier entrains water into the oil

• Rust and corrosion inhibitors protect metal surfaces in the presence of moisture

• Adhesive agents enable the oil to cling to metal surfaces resisting water wash-out

• Protects valves and vanes from sticking

• Protects against wear on frictional surfaces

• Superior mist-forming and agglomerating properties

• Compatible with all plastics, paints, seals and gaskets.

Method of Application:

No special handling precautions are required. Follow regular maintenance instructions as provided with original equipment.

In air tools, the exhaust continuously carries the lubricant away so all moving parts must be lubricated constantly by oil in a mist form carried by the inlet air stream. The air line oiler, which stores the oil and meters it into the air stream, may be built into the tool or a separate reservoir inserted in the air line. Care should be taken to maintain proper oil levels, oil feed rates and the cleanliness of the oiler to prevent entry of dust and dirt. A general indication of a proper oil feed rate is when a fine mist of oil is observed in the exhaust or when a film of oil shows on a clean surface. Moisture should be drained at regular intervals using approved water filters.

The RPL-AL0100 is designed to be compatible with conventional oils, plastics, paints, seals and gaskets. It suitable as a light machine oil for precision parts.
