High-speed, four-stroke engines (> 1000 rpm), such as in onboard emergency equipment or in inland marine or fishing vessels, are often exposed to variable ambient temperatures. This equipment therefore requires lubricants suitable for both cold starts and higher operating temperatures.
Developed primarily for lubrication of bearings and gears of steam and gas turbines, Chevron's turbine oils utilize highly refined paraffinic base oils with rust, oxidation, and foam inhibitors.
Vane, gear, and piston pumps in hydraulic systems demand hydraulic oils with excellent anti-wear performance. Our hydraulic oils feature a high viscosity index and a low pour point, allowing operation in both tropical and arctic conditions.
Open Gear Lubricants, Greases, and Rust Preventatives
Open gears, such as windlass drives, cranes slewing gears, and traversing gears of gantry cranes demand extra protection from the elements. Chevron open gear lubricants, greases, and rust preventatives protect a wide variety of critical parts.
