Vacuum Fluids for Industrial Pump Applications
Applications Require More Vacuum Fluid Solutions
Vacuum pumps are employed in a variety of applications, from chemical, material, food and pharmaceutical manufacturing plants to oil and gas refineries. The requirements of a vacuum pump can vary greatly by application. To ensure the long-term performance of the equipment and reduce operating costs, selecting a lubricant best suited for each vacuum pump application is essential.
Challenges as Diverse as the Applications
Vacuum fluids must perform in all sorts of environments, many of which present challenging operating conditions. Extremely high and low temperatures are not uncommon. Water ingress, long drain intervals, oxidation and chemical stability are other factors that often need to be addressed. Understanding the specific challenges of a particular application is critical to choosing the vacuum fluid that will provide optimal performance with low volatility and reduced carryover.
Solving Vacuum Fluid Issues One At a Time
Our dedicated team will work with you to analyze your particular operation and recommend the right product for your application. Because CPI products are not tied to any specific type of base oil, we are free to formulate products using the base oil that is best suited for an application.
Our range of lubricants include products for rotary vane, rotary screw, liquid ring and piston-type vacuum pumps. Each vacuum fluid in our comprehensive portfolio is engineered to meet key criteria including:
- Oxidative stability
- Low vapor pressure
- Minimal carryover
- Chemical inertness
