Chevron Products Company, a Chevron U.S.A. Inc. division, maker of technologically advanced engine oils, lubricants and coolants, today announced it has expanded its line of Cetus®-branded compressor oils. Cetus® PAO and the rebranded Cetus® HiPerSYN® (formerly HiPerSYN) have joined Cetus® DE to create a family of premium compressor oils formulated for use in a wide range of applications, including portable and stationary rotary screw, rotary vane, and reciprocating compressors.
“We saw the need to create a family of premium compressor oils and evaluated our existing product portfolio to determine the proper path to take,” said Jeff Snyder, Industrial Brand Specialist, Chevron Products Company. “We have developed our new Cetus PAO product and joined it with the rebranded Cetus HiPerSYN and our original Cetus oil, Cetus DE. This combination of products gives our customers a single family of premium compressor oils that meet their varied needs while helping to extend equipment life and improve operational efficiency.”
Cetus® PAO oils are synthetic air compressor lubricants formulated with the highest quality polyalphaolefin (PAO) base fluids. They provide thermal and oxidation stability, high viscosity index, high flash point, low pour point, and hydrolytic stability while protecting against rust, oxidation, foaming.
Cetus® PAO oils are designed to meet the requirements of modern higher output, more efficient air compressors. These units are more compact and operate at higher speeds than older compressors, resulting in higher temperatures.
Cetus® PAO (ISO 32, 46, 68, 100, 150) Benefits:
- Exceptional thermal and oxidation stability
- Long machinery life and maximum compressor efficiency
- Long drain intervals
- Minimal maintenance and downtime
- Low volatility and excellent air release tendency
Cetus® HiPerSYN® Oils are designed to meet the needs of most air compressor applications, especially those with wide operating temperature ranges that may challenge non-synthetic oils. These higher viscosity grade products are especially effective in high temperature applications, such as industrial bearings and gears that require R&O-type synthetic gear oil and sootblowers.
