VBASE® Hydro T-EL™
Hydro T-EL Oils are formulated with a proprietary high-performance base oil and an ashless, zinc-free additive package that provides exceptional thermo-oxidative stability, enhanced lubricity and load carrying, water and air separability, and protection against rust and corrosion.
With high heat capacity and high viscosity indices, Hydro T-EL oils provide superior protection and lubrication across a broad range of operating temperatures, speeds, and applied loads. High heat capacity provides effective and efficient heat removal from rotating components enabling reduced tailrace water temperatures. High viscosity indices and lower traction coefficients provide improved efficiency in operation enabling reduced water draw.
Hydro T-EL oils provide excellent load carrying capacity during both boundary lubrication and high speed, high pressure EHD lubrication regimes. This enhanced pressure behavior reduces the risk of wear and bearing contact under severe operating conditions.
