Chevron’s Regal R&O 68 oil (55 gallon drum) is a premium non-synthetic rust and oxidation oil formulated for use in steam and hydroelectric turbines (formerly Texaco Regal R&O).
This oil is recommended for most electric motor bearings, air compressors, steam turbines, hydroelectric turbines, marine turbines, gears, and non-heavy duty hydraulic systems recommending R&O-type oils (Rando HD oils are recommended for heavy duty hydraulic systems). Chevron’s R&O fluid also serves as a general purpose lubricant for various applications.
It passes the Fresh Water Corrosion Test (ASTM D665, Procedure A), as well as the severe Synthetic Sea Water Rust test (Procedure B). This ISO 68 lubricant also meets ASTM D4304 Type I, British Standard 489, and DIN 51515 requirements and is suitable for use in General Electric, Alstom, and Westinghouse hydroelectric turbines, land and marine sea turbines, and associated reduction gears when R&O-type oil is recommended.
