Oxygen and gas
Looking for oxygen-safe lubricants? Together with our partners we offer you a wide range of superior and innovative fluorinated lubricants for the oxygen and gas industry. The products are chemically inert to oxygen and chlorine and are non-flammable and non-volatile.
What is the challenge?
The use of conventional lubricants, such as synthetic and mineral, in combination with oxygen and other oxidizing chemicals will lead to fire, explosion, decomposition of the lubricant and defective parts.
What is the best solution?
Our range of fluorinated lubricants ZAROX® and FOMLUBE® offer protection in oxygen systems. Available in the form of greases and oils. The products have been tested and approved for safe use in an oxygen environment by Air Liquide, the West German Federal Institute for Material Testing (BAM) and many other authorities in the oxygen industry. ZAROX® and FOMLUBE® are successfully used in cryogenic pumps, connecting rods, O-rings, fittings, valves and controllers.
