Vacuum pump lubricants

Vacuum pumps are used in many industries such as aerospace, automotive, food and beverage, chemical and petrochemical, medical and pharmaceutical industries. The type of vacuum lubricant to be used depends upon the requirements of the application. Selecting the right lubricant for your application is essential to ensure the long term performance of your vacuum pump and to reduce your operating costs.

When advising the right lubricant for your vacuum pump application, our experts take into consideration your vacuum pump type, the level of vacuum to be achieved, the gas composition and environmental conditions. These environmental conditions can result in diverse challenges such as coping with extreme high or low temperatures and water ingress while maintaining excellent oxidation and thermal stability. These challenges will be tackled by our experts in advising you the right lubricant for your specific application and operating conditions.

ECOSYN synthetic vacuum pump lubricants are developed for rotary vane, rotary screw, liquid ring and piston type vacuum pumps.  ECOSYN lubricants are a combination of high quality base oils with specially engineered additive systems and are developed to meet key requirements such as:

  • Excellent thermal and oxidative stability
  • Low vapor pressure
  • Minimal carryover
  • Chemical inertness
  • High flash and fire points
  • Excellent demulsibility
  • Incidental food contact approval
  • Higher level of performance with respect to equipment protection, particularly at high- and low operating temperatures, vacuum pump efficiency and oil life
  • Good biodegradability

WCI's product line of ECOSYN vacuum pump lubricants offers a complete range of oils coupled with quality and reliability for your application. ECOSYN lubricants have proven to outperform its competitors and are a direct high quality low cost replacement for Addinol, Anderol, Busch, Chevron, Exxon Mobil, Lubriplate, Shell, Summit, Ultrachem, …
