Mining and mineral processing plants choose DuPont Krytox oils and greases, available from Fluid Seals , for machinery used in their most demanding applications to extend equipment life and mean time between failure (MTBF).
DuPont Krytox oils and greases protect in the most extreme minerals processing envrionments and are completely resistant to corrosive environments.
As they increase the service life of critical components, DuPont Krytox oils and greases have allowed equipment manufacturers to extend their warranties and manufacturing plants to reduce costly maintenance, all while improving productivity by reducing component failure.
DuPont Krytox oils and greases are high performance, non flammable, and chemically inert lubricants that are compatible with oxygen and have a strong resistance to aggressive chemicals. They can be used in temperatures ranging from -95° C up to +343°C or higher with relubrication, depending on the grade.
Krytox oil is a perfluorinated polyether and liquid fluoropolymer, similar to liquid Teflon, while Krytox greases are made with various viscosity grades of PFPE oil that are thickened with special PTFE grease thickeners to match the performance capabilities of the oils.
Krytox oils and grease grades can have various additives mixed with them for corrosion protection, extreme pressure conditions, or antiwear improvement. As standard, these lubricants are designed for critical oxygen service equipment where failure is not an option.
