Compressor Oil Additives Antioxidants
Vanderbilt Chemicals, LLC provides a broad range of additives to serve the lubrication requirement of reciprocating, rotary and turbo type compressors. Our series of antioxidants prevent varnish and sludge formation and retard corrosion of alloy bearings. We also supply a series of corrosion inhibitors as well as antiwear additives to provide longer lubricant change interval, extended oil filter life, extended overhaul and less downtime.
VANLUBE® 915M Antioxidant
VANLUBE 915M is designed for use at 0.30-1.00 mass percent in high quality mineral and synthetic base stocks where excellent oxidation protection and the control of sludge and deposits are required. It can be combined with a rust inhibitor to formulate R&O, steam turbine and industrial circulating oils. VANLUBE 915M is liquid at room temperature and is easy to handle. It has excellent solubility in all types of mineral oils, and can be blended by conventional equipment at normal blending temperatures.
VANLUBE® AZ Lubricant Additive
VANLUBE AZ is used in engine oils, in industrial oils, and in soap and clay-thickened greases. Used in both gasoline and diesel crankcase oils to inhibit oxidation, bearing corrosion and wear. Used in combination with detergents, it inhibits corrosion and wear by inhibiting oxidation of the oil and also by the formation of protective films on metal surfaces. Used as a partial replacement for zinc dithiophosphates.
CUVAN® 826 Metal Deactivator
CUVAN 826 is a 2,5-dimercapto-1,3,4-thiadiazole derivative. It is an ashless, oil-soluble corrosion inhibitor and metal deactivator for non-ferrous metals. It can be used in industrial and automotive oils and greases, metalworking fluids, etc. A small dosage of CUVAN 826, as shown below, will protect copper and its alloys against corrosive sulfur at temperatures up to 121°C. The unique composition of CUVAN 826 is also capable of suppressing the corrosive action of hydrogen sulfide.
