Cetus DE oils are used for portable and stationary rotary screw, rotary vane, and reciprocating compressors. While specific manufacturer recommendations vary, the ISO 68 grade is most commonly used for rotary compressors, while higher viscosity grade is preferred for reciprocating units. Also suited for the lubrication of anti-friction bearing assemblies operating under high temperature conditions (e.g. in fans, blowers and process pumps).
Not recommended for use in breathing air compressors.
These oils can be used in compressors with the following gases: process air, benzene, butadiene, carbon dioxide (dry), carbon monoxide, ethylene, furnace (crack) gas, helium, hydrocarbon gases, hydrogen, inert gases, methane, natural gas, nitrogen, propane, sulfur hexafluoride, and synthesis gas.
