Castrol Aircol PD 100 - Air compressor lubricants - 2168
Castrol Aircol PD oils are a range of compressor oils, based upon highly refined mineral oils, which are intended for the lubrication of both reciprocating and rotary air compressors. For lubrication of rotors, bearings and gears in rotary compressors, especially the oil flooded screw type with lubricant drain cycles of up to 2000 hours under normal use.
The Castrol Aircol PD grades are ashless oils recommended for the lubrication of rotors, bearings and gears in rotary compressors, especially the oil flooded screw type with delivery temperatures of up to 120°C. Castrol Aircol PD compressor oils have excellent oxidation resistance and low carbon forming tendencies and meet the requirements of the DIN 51506 VD-L classification of lubricants for compressors having air discharge temperatures up to 220ºC. Castrol Aircol PD compressor oils also have sufficient anti-wear performance, as measured in the FZG Gear Test, to allow their use in certain screw compressors where drive between the screws is transmitted by the rotor faces themselves. The modern tendency in air compressor design is towards higher capacities from smaller units, with higher loads and temperatures leading to greater demands upon the lubricant.
Castrol Aircol PD meets the requirements (for appropriate viscosity grade) of major compressor manufacturers such as Atlas Copco, Champion, Sullair, Compair/Broomwade, Ingersoll-Rand, Kaeser and Bauer.
Excellent water separation characteristics which allow condensation to readily separate from the oil, minimising the risk of emulsions which could block the oil separator element.
Fully inhibited against corrosion which enables protection even when operating under humid conditions.
Good thermal stability, low volatility and low carbon formation reduces the risk of fire and explosion and leads to longer operating life (up to 2000 hours).
Low deposit forming tendencies extends oil change intervals and provides longer air filter life which contributes to a reduction in maintenance costs.
Excellent coalescing properties mean little carry over of oil in the air stream.
