VacOil Brand


Why choose VacOil 19 Grade?

  • VacOil 19 Grade is the standard choice for use in direct drive two stage oil sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps.
  • VacOil 19 Grade is the least expensive oil option and is recommended when frequent oil changes are needed to remove contaminants and water from pump.

Why choose VacOil 195 Grade?

  • VacOil 195 Grade is most often used for belt driven two stage oil sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps.
  • Its higher viscosity offers excellent thermal stability and is ideal for a broad range of pumps under 300 cfm.

Why choose VacOil 20 Grade?

  • VacOil 20 Grade is a upgraded oil vs the 19 grade and is also used in all two stage oil sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps.
  • VacOil 20 Grade has a vapor pressure of less than 10^-6 torr vs 10^-5 torr for 19 grade and is slightly more viscous and more stable than 19 grade oil.
  • VacOil 20 Grade is used to get better resistance to water and chemical attack and to decrease the frequency of oil changes.

Why choose VacOil 130 Grade?

  • VacOil 130 Grade is used in rotary piston pumps from 150 cfm to 300 cfm with operating temperatures up to 160 °F.

Why choose VacOil Elite Z?

  • VacOil Elite Z is a synthetic hydrocarbon fluid that has been doubled distilled for improved properties.  Its vapor pressure is less than 10^-7 torr and is more viscous than 20 grade.
  • VacOil Elite Z is the most expensive of these oils and is recommend when long oil life is desired and to decrease the frequency of oil changes.
  • VacOil Elite Z is often used in small two stage pumps that tend to run hotter and do not need much oil.  It is also highly recommend for use for leak detector vacuum pumps. 
  • VacOil Elite Z is more resistant to water and chemical attack and is recommend for use with higher temperatures.

Why choose VacOil FF Grade?

  • VacOil FF Grade flushing fluid oil is used between oil changes to assist in the internal cleaning of the particles and sludge buildup in the vacuum pump.
  • Its low viscosity helps it free contamination from internal parts allowing it to be flushed from the pump through the drain plug.
  • VacOil FF Grade is the least expensive oil and is compatible for use with all other hydrocarbon oils.

Note: Any vacuum pumps that have been using a Fomblin, PFTE fluid or inert fluid instead of hydrocarbon fluids are not compatible with these oils.
Do not use any hydrocarbon oils when pumping on oxygen.
