Castrol Viscogen KL 130 - Synthetic chain lubricants - 3554

Castrol Viscogen KL 130 - Synthetic chain lubricants - 3554

 

Designed for high temp lubrication in severe environments where the use of mineral oils or conventional synthetic oils would result in excessive wear, carbonisation and residue formation. KL 3, 23 and 300 available in spray also.

Castrol Viscogen KL™ range are thermally stable synthetic lubricants designed for high temperature lubrication in severe environments, where the use of mineral oils or conventional synthetic oils would result in excessive wear, carbonisation and residue formation. They can be used up to temperatures of +200°C/+390°F, depending on the viscosity.
Viscogen KL have been developed from base fluids which form exceptionally adherent, transparent and odourless lubricating films and an additive system free of solids, metals or silicone which enhances load carrying capability and wear protection.

 

Application

Viscogen KL is available in 6 different viscosities depending on the ambient and operating conditions. The dimensions of the chain as well as its structural shape (e.g. roller, pin, ladder chains, insertion and flat link hoisting chains) are important when selecting the right viscosity. The way the lubricant is applied must also be considered e.g. manual lubrication, drip feed lubricator, central lubrication, sump lubrication or via spray can.
Viscogen KL finds use in many industrial applications, for example: High-rack storage shelves, bakery machines, paint lines, conveyor chains, tenter frames and dryers, washing plants, underfloor chains, steamers, slashers, baking ovens, slide ways, spindles, ropes, open gear wheels, plastic toothed belts and sheet-fed offset machines.
Viscogen KL 23 is especially suitable for use in BOPP (Biaxially oriented Polypropylene) film stretching machines.

 

Additional Information:

If lubricant drips off, select next higher viscosity.
Compatible and miscible with mineral oils.
Easy and economical use with adjustable spray head. Spraying foam remains until oil has penetrated into the friction point.

Castrol Viscogen G - Fully synthetic high performance lubricants - 3560

Castrol Viscogen G - Fully synthetic high performance lubricants - 3560

 

Viscogen™ G is especially formulated for use in hollow glass machines. The transparent oils do not contain solids and leave no residues even when overheated. Viscogen G maintains its lubricity up to temperatures of +200°C / +392°F and feature an excellent load-carrying capacity. They reduce friction and offer optimum wear protection. Viscogen G is more economical in use than conventional mineral or synthetic oils.

 

Application

For the lubrication of hollow glass machines in centralized lubricating systems. Also suitable for chain lubrication systems fitted with a drip-feed lubricator, centralised lubrication systems, oil spraying systems or applied manually with brush or oil can. For all lubricating points in the normal and high temperature range, take the viscosity into consideration.

 

 

User benefits include:

  • Thermally stable

Castrol Optigear Synthetic A 320 - Synthetic Gear Oil - 3579

Castrol Optigear Synthetic A 320 - Synthetic Gear Oil - 3579

 

Fully synthetic gear oils based on polyalphaolefin with MICROFLUX TRANS®, the load-active additive combination

 

OPTIGEAR® SYNTHETIC A are fully synthetic high performance gear oils with MICROFLUX TRANS® additives.
They offer optimum wear protection under very extreme thermal loads and operating conditions such as vibrations, oscillating motions and shock loads. The wide range of temperature - especially in case of low starting temperatures - and the high load carrying capacity are special assets of these industrial gear oils. Thermally and mechanically stable polyalphaolefin and the MICROFLUX TRANS® additive combination adjust themselves to the changing operating conditions and actively prevent wear.


Applications

  • For especially highly loaded industrial gears - in case of great changes in temperature and extreme loads
  • For wind power stations, conveyor belts, crane control gears, lifts, rolling mills etc.
  • For highly loaded eccentrics, gear couplings, chain drives, robot drives and joints as well as positive power transmissions
  • For all types of rolling and sliding bearings, especially for tapered roller bearings in extruders, shaking screens, vibrators or for spindle presses
  • For transport systems operated during winter
  • Especially suited for arctic countries such as Canada, North America and Scandinavia


Advantages

  • Good viscosity/temperature behaviour, wide range of operating temperature
  • Excellent low-temperature behaviour, easy starting, good fluidity at extremely low temperatures
  • Optimum wear protection - smoothing of pitting and scoring
  • Especially low coefficient of friction leading to reduced friction and energy costs, lowering of oil temperatures
  • Significantly extended oil change intervals, reduced maintenance costs
  • Shear-stable
  • High corrosion protection, compatible with non-ferrous metals
  • Compatible with conventional paints and sealing materials

 

ISO Viscosity and pack sizes available:
