Compound Steam Cylinder Oil T
This oil is for use in most Traction Engine, Locomotives and Stationary engines working with saturated steam and is compounded to provide superior lubrication where very wet steam has to be handled at the cylinders. The fatty compounds form emulsions which spread the oil on the internal surfaces, providing a strong lubricating film where needed to protect bores and valves. This is particuarly important where very wet steam has to be handled at the cylinders, or water treatment chemicals are carried within the steam. It is further enhanced with inhibitors and tackiness additives to ensure cylinders are corrosion free even after over-wintering. For use in total loss systems only.
Suitable for all steam engines working with saturated steam up to pressures of 260psi, with typical steam temperatures up to 450°F. (230ºC). The product is free of rapeseed oil, with a higher level of tallow that Mainline 1000. This procuct is produced from a special cylinder stock treated with fatty compounds and Tallow to provide superior lubrication even in wet conditions.
