Petro-Canada Ardee Oils are specially formulated to lubricate and cool the mechanisms of air- operated rock drills. Ardee Oils are blended from ultra pure Petro-Canada HT Severely Hydrocracked base oils and a carefully balanced set of lubricant additives to give the best possible performance in tough rock drill applications.
Petro-Canada Ardee Oils are designed for use in pneumatic percussion equipment operated at high cubic feet per minute (CFM) air flow rates. They can also be used in all types of equipment lubricated with in-line oilers.
Ardee Oils meet or surpass the following equipment manufacturers’ rock-drill oil specifications for specific viscosity grades: Ingersoll-Rand, Joy and Worthington.
Applications include the lubrication of pneumatic equipment used for mining and tunnelling, jack- hammers, riveters, pavement breakers, tampers and other construction equipment.
Both Ardee 32 and 100 have been used successfully in water injection plunger pumps. They work well because of the presence of a tackifier and rust and corrosion inhibitors in the formulation.
