Houghton Gum Solvent GSC - Solvent Cleaner - 60690

Houghton Gum Solvent GSC - Solvent Cleaner - 60690

Solvent cleaner for removal of oxidation residues.

 

Gum Solvent GSC is a blend of solvents completely soluble in mineral oil, which helps remove gums and varnishes caused by oxidation in oil based lubricants. 

All mineral oils are susceptible to oxidation resulting in the formation of corrosive organic acids, increasing its acidity and viscosity and forming insoluble gums, sludge and varnish. This causes sluggish operation, particularly of hydraulic valves.

Gum Solvent GSC removes such oxidation products and quickly restores trouble-free operation of hydraulics and cleanliness and efficiency in other oil systems such as gearboxes, heat transfer systems and crankcases.

 

Applications:

Gum Solvent GSC should be added to the oil in the hydraulic system in the proportion of 5% by volume. The system should then be operated for 100-150 hours before draining and filling with new oil. The flushing action of Gum Solvent GSC occurs during machine operation there is no need to stop production. 

Gum Solvent GSC does not neutralise corrosive acidic by-products of mineral oil oxidation hence draining after the treatment period is essential. 

Gum Solvent GSC is also highly effective in removing gear oil oxidation residues from gearboxes oils and oil-filled heat transfer systems. The latter will improve efficiency by removing gums from heater coils.

After using Gum Solvent GSC all filters should be thoroughly cleaned before the introduction of new oil.

 

Advantages:

  • High flash point compared with many solvent cleaners
  • Exceptional solvent power for gums and varnishes 
  • Dissolves small amounts of water contamination 
  • Ease of application
  • No loss of production time 
  • Restores system efficiency
