1. Oxidation Stability
Aims to provide long service life free from deposits, sludge, and acidic oxidation products, thus avoiding sticking valves, and ensuring good bearing protection.
2. Rust Protection
Aims to protect against corrosion or rusting of costly precision parts.
3. Water Separation
Assists with speedy removal of contaminating water from leaks and condensation.
4. Foam Inhibited
With an effective surface-foam suppressant, it often resists foaming which can generally ensure smooth functioning of governors and minimizes the risk of sump overflow.
5. Air Release Properties
A balanced combination of inhibitors prevents air locking of oil circulating pumps due to entrained air. This often provides smooth and trouble-free operation of lubricating oil systems.
6. Potential inventory savings
Rust and oxidation inhibited formulation has multipurpose capability in a wide range of industrial applications for which this type of product is recommended, helping to simplify oil inventories and reduce the possibility of using the wrong lubricant.
