CHEVRON TEGRA® SYNTHETIC COMPRESSOR OILS

ISO 32, 46, 68, 100, 150
CUSTOMER BENEFITS
Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils deliver value through: • Exceptional thermal and oxidation stability — Long lubricant life in high temperature operations. • Extended machinery life and increased compressor efficiency — Low carbon-forming tendency minimizes deposits. • Extended drain intervals • Reduced maintenance and downtime — Trouble-free operation, and extended service intervals means reduced operating costs. • Proven performance — Successfully used in Atlas Copco, Ingersoll-Rand, Quincy, Sullair, and GardnerDenver compressors. Valve cleanliness is maintained by the excellent thermal and oxidation stability and low carbon-forming tendencies of this product. Clean valves minimize recompression, increase compressor efficiencies and reduce maintenance shutdown costs. Compressor users can obtain substantial savings in maintenance and lubrication costs by converting to Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils. Savings will be realized with extended oil drain intervals. Because of low volatility, fluid consumption is reduced. In addition, they will find compatibility with paints, seals, plastics, and other types of construction materials. Risks from potential fires and explosions are reduced with Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils. The lower carbon-forming tendencies and the higher flash points, fire points, and autoignition temperatures all contribute to improving compressor safety.

FEATURES
Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils are synthetic compressor lubricants formulated with the highest quality polyalphaolefin (PAO) base fluids. They provide excellent thermal and oxidation stability, high viscosity index, high flash point, low pour point, and excellent hydrolytic stability. Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils protect against rust, oxidation, and foaming, and have ashless antiwear properties. Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils are designed to meet the requirements of modern higher output, more efficient compressors. These units are more compact and operate at higher speeds than older compressors, resulting in higher temperatures. As temperatures increase, deposit formation on valves and air separators can also increase. Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils provide the performance demanded by these compressors. Users will experience minimal carbon, varnish, and sludge deposits on valves and air separators. Exceptional oxidation stability extends crankcase drain intervals many times compared with those obtained with mineral oils. Compressor operators realize a reduction in equipment downtime and used oil disposal costs.

APPLICATIONS
Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils are formulated to provide superior lubricating qualities for most compressors, especially portable and stationary rotary vane and screw compressors as well as single-stage, two-stage, and multistage reciprocating compressors. While specific manufacturer recommendations vary, the ISO 32 and ISO 68 grades are most commonly used for rotary compressors, while higher viscosity grades are preferred for reciprocating units. Since reciprocating compressors require both a crankcase lubricant and a cylinder lubricant, Chevron Tegra Synthetic Compressor Oils are formulated to meet this dual requirement. The formulation technology incorporated in these compressor fluids has been used successfully in reciprocating and rotary screw compressors from Ingersoll-Rand, Quincy, Sullair, Atlas Copco, and Gardner-Denver. Do not use in high pressure systems in the vicinity of flames, sparks and hot surfaces. Use only in well ventilated areas. Keep container closed. Do not use in breathing air apparatus or medical equipment.
