CAMCO® FMO-7 Series

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

CAMCO® FMO-7 Series is a fully formulated synthetic gear and bearing lubricant based on synthetic hydrocarbons. The CAMCO® FMO-7 Series gear and bearing lubricants have excellent thermal and oxidative stability, combined with superior gear load-carrying ability.

The synthetic hydrocarbon base fluid has proved in extensive field evaluation to give extended service life and overall economic benefits. Synthetic hydrocarbons combine high viscosity indexes, high film strength and excellent mechanical shear resistance even in heavily loaded applications. Additives provide superior oxidative stability corrosion protection and load carrying ability. Field test reduction in heat build-up due to friction. The reduced friction may also reduce horsepower requirements up to ten percent depending on other operating and environmental conditions. Other advantages include improved cold temperature fluidity. Good high temperature oxidation and thermal stability (operating limits are typically 100°F higher than mineral oils). Low volatility and compatibility with mineral oils.

Authorized by USDA for use in Federally inspected meat and poultry plants (H-1). Complies with FDA 21 CFR 178.3570 – Lubricants with Incidental Food Contact.

CAMCO 4276-68

(Food-Grade Status: H-2) - This lubricant is specifically formulated for industrial applications where air temperatures often exceed 500°F.

CAMCO® 4276-68

CAMCO® 4276-68 is a designed lubricant specifically formulated for industrial applications where air temperatures often exceed 500°F.

CAMCO® 4276-68 is a stable dispersion of graphite in an ashless polyolester synthetic fluid. It may also be used for other applications where the combination of heat stable lubricating oil and an adherent solid lubricating film provide a low coefficient of friction and prevention of metal-to-metal contact even when the synthetic film volatilizes.

ADVANTAGES

Reduced wear, improved extreme pressure properties and friction reduction are combined with high temperature stability. The synthetic lubricant provides a fluid film to higher temperatures than mineral oils. If temperatures rise to the point that the synthetic fluid volatilizes, no residue remains except an adherent film of graphite. This lubricating film remains on the wear surface to temperatures approaching 750°F.

Low volatility characteristics help to provide a longer lasting fluid film, increasing lubrication intervals and reducing lubricant consumption. CAMCO® 4276-68 has a high autoignition point which reduces the possibility of fires. Lower volatility also reduces smoke to provide a cleaner environment. A high boiling point allows the lubricant to penetrate and lubricate wear surfaces on hot chains.

Excellent thermal stability and an ashless synthetic carrier fluid reduce carbon and varnish build-up. In fact, CAMCO® 4276-68 has natural detergency properties that often help to clean up parts already contaminated by inferior lubricants. The result of reduced carbon build-up and the improved lubricity of a solid film lubricant is energy savings.
