Turbine Lubricants

Overview

MERCURY TURBINE OIL are highly refined, premium quality oils developed to meet the requirements for use in large turbine systems. These oils are designed for use in circulating systems where exceptionally stable and long-life oils are needed to assure good equipment performance.

Applications

MERCURY TURBINE OILS are designed for use in direct-drive steam turbines and hydroelectric turbines, gas turbines, rotary and centrifugal air compressors, vacuum pumps, deep well water pumps, machine tools, air tools lubricated through air line lubricators, industrial gear drives not requiring extreme-pressure (EP) or compounded gear oil, and lightly loaded plain and rolling element bearings found in electric motors and blowers.

Features & Benefits

MERCURY TURBINE OILS are characterized by outstanding performance in preventing rust, oxidation, foaming, air entrainment and many other factors that occur in sophisticated systems. They exhibit excellent water separation properties, exceptional thermal stability and resistance to oxidation and superior rust, corrosion, and foam inhibitors.
