Circulating Oils

Formulated lubricants for use in air and gas compressor applications.

SPX Compressor Oil EB 150, 220

SPX Compressor Oil EB is a high-quality lubricant developed for the lubrication of oil-flooded rotary compressors in natural gas service and for cylinder lubrication in reciprocating compressors in natural gas service. SPX Compressor Oil EB is specially formulated to provide excellent service and protection in gas compression service.

Advantages
• Excellent oxidation resistance and thermal stability at high temperatures
• Formulated to minimize the effects of gas dilution and oil absorption
• Good wear protection
• Protects against rust and corrosion
• Good foam resistance

Applications
• Oil-flooded rotary screw, rotary lobe, and rotary vane compressors in natural gas service
• Industrial reciprocating compressors pumping natural gas
• Reciprocating compressors commonly found in remote gas gathering stations

SPX R&O 22, 32, 46, 68, 100, 150, 220, 320, 460

SPX R&O is a rust and oxidation (R&O) inhibited, antiwear circulating oil developed for use in circulation systems, centrifugal air compressors, geared turbines, lightly loaded gearboxes and other various industrial applications. This product has a low level of ashless (zinc-free) antiwear additive for mild wear protection.

Advantages
• Good oxidation resistance to minimize sludge and varnish formation
• Mild wear protection
• Protects against rust and corrosion
• Excellent water-separating properties
• Good foam resistance

Applications
• Air tools and pneumatic equipment
• Centrifugal air compressors• Steam turbines and hydroelectric turbines, both with direct drive and with gear drives
• Lightly loaded enclosed industrial gearboxes where the OEM specifies a R&O type oil(typically >ISO 68)
• Lightly loaded plain and rolling element bearings
• Vacuum pumps, deep well water pumps and machine tools
• General purpose machinery
• Can be used as when a “non-detergent” oil is recommended for pumps and compressors

SPX Turbine Oil

SPX Turbine Oil is formulated with a combination of high quality paraffinic base stocks and optimized antioxidant additives for use in steam turbines, some gas turbines, vacuum pumps, air compressors and other various industrial applications. This product prevents rust and oxidation, extends fluid life, and reduces varnish buildup to minimize maintenance. SPX Turbine Oil is a suitable replacement for a “non-detergent” type pump or air compressor oil.

Advantages
• Superior oxidation resistance to minimize sludge and varnish formation
• Protects against rust and corrosion
• Excellent water-separating properties
• Good foam resistance

Applications
• Air tools and pneumatic equipment
• Centrifugal air compressors
• Steam turbines and some gas turbines
• Lightly loaded plain and rolling element bearings
• Vacuum pumps, deep well water pumps and machine tools
• General purpose machinery
• Can be used as when a “non-detergent” oil is recommended for pumps and compressors
