Vacuum Pump Oil: RPL-VP30

Product Description:

The RPL-VP30 misting oil is an ISO 100, high performance oil designed for vacuum pumps and the mist-lubrication of machine components including slide-ways, bearings, gears, chains and more. The formula is blended using highly refined, hydro-treated, and high viscosity index paraffin base oils with specially designed additives for long lasting lubrication.

The RPL-VP30 has excellent resistance to oxidation and good extreme pressure and anti-wear properties. This product has enhanced wetting capabilities and agglomerate readily from a mist to a liquid when the mist is applied at high velocity. This allows the mist to stay on the surfaces of slide-ways and bearings longer without the product escaping from critical component surfaces.  It has low vapor pressure for vacuums as low as 10-2 torr.

Typical applications include rotary and reciprocating vacuum pumps, slow and high speed bearings, industrial gearboxes, machine tools and air lines, slide-ways, cams  and electric motors.

Features and Benefits:

• Superior mist-forming and agglomerating properties

• Excellent rust and corrosion protection

• High resistance to oxidation

• EP and anti-wear additives for excellent protection in high load conditions

• High viscosity index (V.I.)
