Lubrication technologies that utilise mineral oils or synthetics can often react when they come into contact with oxygen, chlorine, fluorine, and bromine. This can increase the potential for explosion, fire, deterioration of lubricants (requiring more frequent lubrication) and equipment failure.
DuPont Krytox NRT lubricants, available from Fluid Seals , feature advanced properties that ensure oxygen service equipment, vacuum pumps, cryogenic pumps, valves and compressors operate smoothly. These NRT lubricants also help to minimise corrosion of reactive gas components.
Krytox NRT lubricants provide a safe and cost-effective high performance solution to hazardous chemical and extreme high temperature reactive gas applications.
Krytox lubricants are compatible with polymers used in o-rings, valves and seals and have an extreme resistance to water washout.
These non-flammable lubricants are inert, non-reactive, non-oxidising and non-soluble in most chemicals. Krytox NRT lubricants have no auto ignition at temperatures up to 900ºF in oxygen and no ignition at pressures up to 350 bar.
ISO 9001 certified and silicone-free, with no hazardous Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) or chlorine, Krytox lubricants leave a reduced environmental footprint. The lubricants produce less wastewater contamination than conventional lubricants as Krytox is not water soluble.
DuPont lubricants have been independently tested by organisations and proven acceptable for oxygen and other reactive chemical compatibility
Fluid Seals distributes Krytox NRT Series lubricants in Australia and New Zealand.
