Chevron Expands Line of Premium Cetus Compressor Oils

Chevron Expands Line of Premium Cetus Compressor Oils

Cetus® PAO Joins Cetus® HiPerSYN® and Cetus® DE Creating a Family of Products for a Range of Compressor Applications

SAN RAMON, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 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.

Cetus® HiPerSYN® Oils are formulated with premium base oil technology and enhanced by a unique additive system that provides thermal and oxidation stability, high viscosity index, high flash point, low pour point, anti-wear protection, and excellent hydrolytic stability. Cetus HiPerSYN Oils also protect against the formation of oxidation byproducts and acidic materials which can eventually cause deposits and varnish, rust, oxidation, and foaming.

Cetus® HiPerSYN® Oils (ISO 32, 46, 68, 100) Benefits:

  • Long lubricant life in high temperature operations
  • Long machinery life and maximum compressor efficiency
  • Long drain intervals
  • Minimal maintenance and downtime
  • Minimal oil consumption
  • Proven performancein rotary screw air compressors manufactured by major OEMs including Sullair and Quincy as well as Diamond Power soot blowers.

Cetus® DE oils are synthetic diester-based, oxidation resistant compressor oils for use in portable and stationary rotary screw, rotary vane, and reciprocating compressors. These oils excel in applications that cannot tolerate carbon build up, and perform extremely well in high temperatures.

Cetus® DE oils have a low sludge-forming tendency and a high solvency for deposits that help keep compressor parts clean. Cetus® DE oils provide a greater margin of safety than conventional petroleum products because their flash points, fire points, and auto ignition temperatures are much higher.

Cetus® DE (ISO 32, 68, 100, 150) Benefits:

  • Long life
  • Ignition safety
  • Minimal oil consumption
