Oil is important for the vacuum process for many reasons. It lubricates themoving parts, provides sealing and even removes contaminants from the process. High-quality oils and lubricants are vital to your vacuum pump’s performance and health. LEYBONOL is in-house engineered to ensure airtight lubrication, chemical stability, as well as the required oxidation, and heat tolerance.
How do you know what oil is right for your needs?
The right oil depends on your application and pump technology.
You can scroll on and read all about them, contact our experts for further support. Or make your life easy and use the oil finder to determine which oil you need.
Our high-quality oil help you get a high performance out of our pump. They also reduce wear and tear, extending the overall lifetime of your vacuum pump. You can keep your mind on your production process, LEYBONOL will take care of your vacuum pump.
Reduced maintenance costs
Opting for high-grade oil can also lead to reduced power consumption in the pump, ultimately resulting in cost savings on your operational expenses. LEYBONOL’s exceptional quality, directly impacts both the frequency of oil changes and the wear and tear experienced by your pump's components.
Industry-leading quality standards
LEYBONOL is compliant with REACH, DSL, NDSL, GHS and many other regulations. But we go beyond these standards to provide you with a safe and effective vacuum pump oil. All our oil are subject to frequent and rigorous testing to ensure each batch is consistent and provides the same outstanding vacuum performance.
LEYBONOL provides you with 5 different vacuum pump oil types, each of which has its own specialties and optimal performing environments, so you have a reliable vacuum pump oil for every application.
Synthetic oil – Ester
Synthetic oil - Polyalphaolefin (PAO)
Synthetic oil – PFPE
Diffusion pump oil
Special lubricants and greases
Mineral oil is known for its exceptional compatibility with elastomers and resistance to hydrolysis. It is often referred to as semi-synthetic pump oil. Hydrocracked oils, on the other hand, are manufactured at high hydrogen pressures and elevated temperatures, making them largely free of aromatic compounds and olefins.
These oils offer several key benefits:
Enhanced thermal stability: They exhibit superior thermal stability when compared to traditional mineral vacuum pump oil.
Extended oil change intervals: In most cases, they allow for longer intervals between vacuum pump oil changes, contributing to cost savings and operational efficiency.
合成機油 – 酯
Ester oil stands out as the preferred choice for vacuum pump applications that demand exceptional thermal performance.
Key properties of ester oil include:
High-temperature resilience: Ester oil is well-suited for operations at elevated temperatures, ensuring reliable performance even in demanding thermal conditions.
Moderate elastomer compatibility: It offers satisfactory compatibility with elastomers, striking a balance between effective sealing and functionality.
Decent hydrolysis resistance: While not the absolute highest, ester oil demonstrates a reasonable level of resistance to hydrolysis, making it a practical choice for various applications.
合成機油 - 聚 α 烯烴 (PAO)
Polyalphaolefin (PAO) oil is a class of synthetic hydrocarbons known for their paraffin-like nature and uniform molecular structure. When compared to mineral oil, PAO oil exhibits superior thermal and chemical resistance.
These oils offer exceptional benefits, particularly excelling in:
Low-temperature performance: PAO oil has outstanding flow properties in cold conditions, making it highly effective at low temperatures.
Elastomer compatibility: They are well-suited for applications requiring elastomer compatibility, ensuring reliable sealing and functionality.
Hydrolysis resistance: PAO oil provides strong resistance against hydrolysis, enhancing its longevity and reliability.
合成機油 – PFPE
When it comes to high temperatures, PFPE oil is your hassle-free solution. It is virtually inert when exposed to various chemicals and oxidizing agents and remains unaltered even under intense energy radiation.
Here are some key considerations:
Temperature sensitivity: Reactions may occur at temperatures exceeding approximately 150°C (302°F), so careful monitoring is advised.
Exceptional thermal stability: Perfluoropolyether (PFPE) demonstrates remarkable thermal stability and is non-flammable, providing added safety in high-temperature environments.
Extreme temperature resilience: Thermal decomposition only becomes a concern at temperatures exceeding 290°C (554°F), highlighting its ability to withstand extreme heat.
For diffusion pump oil, the choice of fluids is critical. These fluids need to meet specific criteria to ensure optimal performance, including:
Low vapor pressure and thermal stability: They maintain low vapor pressure at room temperature while demonstrating significant resistance to thermal decomposition and oxidation.
High surface tension: The fluids should possess high surface tension characteristics to minimize the creeping of oil films.
Chemical inertness, high flash point, and low evaporation heat: They must exhibit chemical inertness, boast a high flash point for safety, and have low evaporation heat.
Versatility and cost-effectiveness: Ideal pump fluids should enable high pumping speeds across a broad pressure range while remaining cost-effective.
