Mobil Velocite 3
SPINDLE AND HYDRAULIC OIL
Mobil Velocite 3 Description
Mobil Velocite 3 oil is a premium performance product primarily designed for the lubrication of high-speed spindles in machine tools. It is also used in some critical hydraulic, circulation systems and air line oilers where the appropriate viscosity grade is selected. Mobil Velocite 3 is formulated from select high-quality, low viscosity base oils and additives that impart good resistance to oxidation and protection from rust and corrosion. It possesses very good resistance to foaming and separates readily from water.
Mobil Velocite 3 provides exceptional lubrication of close-tolerance bearings which helps keep the bearings running cool and helps maintain the precision required by many of today's critical machine tools. Although Mobil Velocite 3 was designed for spindle bearings, it exhibits the required properties to function as a low pressure hydraulic and circulating oil as long as the proper viscosity is selected. This feature can help minimise inventory costs and reduce the potential for product misapplication.
Mobil Velocite 3 Benefits
Good Oxidation Resistance:
Helps reduce critical deposit formation and improves oil life
Very Good Rust and Corrosion Protection:
Improves equipment life and provides increased precision long-term
Effective Water Separation:
Resists emulsion formation, keeps moisture out of critical lubrication areas, and allows easy removal of moisture from system reservoirs
Mobil Velocite 3 Applications
- High speed spindle bearings in machine tools and equipment where high speeds and fine clearances are involved
- Precision grinders, lathes, jig borers and tracer mechanisms
- Mobil Velocite 3 is recommended for zero clearance type spindle bearings which operate with extremely close clearances
- For sleeve type spindle bearings having greater clearances, the choice of viscosity depends on the relation between clearance and spindle speed
- Low pressure hydraulic systems where appropriate viscosity is selected
- For some sensitive instruments such as telescopes, laboratory equipment, etc.
