Chevron’s Regal R&O 46 oil, 5 gallon pail, is a mineral-based rust and oxidation oil manufactured for use in steam and hydroelectric turbines. This product was formerly Texaco Regal R&O.
This turbine fluid is recommended for lubricating most electric motor bearings, gears, air compressors, steam turbines, hydroelectric turbines, marine turbines, and non-heavy duty hydraulic systems recommending R&O type oils (for heavy duty hydraulic systems, Rando HD oils are recommended). This product can also be used as a general purpose lubricant for other applications.
Chevron’s R&O lubricant passes the Fresh Water Corrosion Test (ASTM D665, Procedure A), and the severe Synthetic Sea Water Rust test (Procedure B). This ISO 46 lubricant also meets the following requirements:
- Alstom HTGD 90117
- ASTM D4304 Type I, British Standard 489, and DIN 51515
- General Electric GEK 28143b
- Siemens TLV 901304
- Long lubrication life
- Quick water separation
- Hastened air release
- Excellent rust protection
- Ashless formulation
This R&O mineral-based turbine fluid provides greater rust protection, oxidation inhibition, and foam suppression for efficient performance across a number of applications. This product helps to ensure ideal lubrication film strength and reduced wear with its excellent demulsibility. It also minimizes entrained air that could otherwise result in low lubricant film strength between moving parts.
This product is available in 5 gal. pails and 55 gal. drums.
