Mobil Almo 529 is a premium quality high performance product primarily intended for the lubrication of pneumatically operated rock drills in underground and surface mining operations.
It is formulated from high quality base stocks and additives, which provides excellent chemical stability and good protection against wear and corrosion. It offers an optimum balance of adhesiveness, yet is emulsifiable enough to pick up moisture carried in the air stream reducing the negative effects of water on wear and corrosion.
It does not form gummy deposits that could cause sluggish valve action. Even in the presence of water, Mobil Almo 529 has good preferential metal-wetting properties that maintain continuous oil films.
These properties in combination with high EP characteristics help provide excellent lubrication resulting in long equipment life. It also has the following benefits:
Effective Chemical Stability: Reduce sludge and deposit formation, Improves valve operation
Desired Emulsifiable Properties: Effective lubrication in presence of water
High Viscosity Index: Provides good lubrication at both high and low temperatures
