Castrol’s comprehensive range of turbine oils meets the needs of all types of turbines used for electric power generation and compressor drive applications, whether the turbine is an industrial frame machine, an aero derivative or any other.
A synthetic hydrocarbon based lubricant developed to lubricate industrial gas turbines, gas compressors and other rotating equipment which face high temperatures or where the critical nature of the plant demands a premium lubricant for reliable operation with extended periods between shut-downs.
Primarily intended for use in enclosed and sealed systems, Castrol Perfecto HT 5 is based on a solvent refined, high viscosity index mineral oil selected for high thermal and oxidation stability. It can be used at lower temperatures, in open air systems. Its low viscosity achieves the high heat transfer rates of turbulent flow conditions.
Rust and oxidation inhibitors enhance quality mineral oils to ensure Perfecto X turbine oils give excellent protection at high temperatures. Recommended for industrial gas turbines where the lubricant may be exposed to very high localized temperatures, they also suit steam turbines and Combined Cycle generating systems where steam and gas turbines share a common supply.
Perfecto XEP turbine lubricants contain anti-wear additives to give additional load carrying properties. They are recommended for industrial gas turbines where the lubricant is likely to be exposed to very high localized temperatures.
Perfecto XPG high performance lubricants have thermal and oxidative stability and enhanced load carrying properties. Intended primarily for large gas turbines, it can also be used in any large items of rotating equipment where a long lubricant life and clean operation is desired.
