Kerr Pump & Supply distributes Kerr-Lube, our specialized vacuum pump oil designed for long life under severe conditions. This unique formulation was developed for recirculating systems and is ideal for the needs of oil-sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps.
Kerr-Lube is a hydrogen-cracked, dewaxed, paraffinic oil lubricant. This specialty vacuum pump lubricant is superior to conventional solvent refined crude stock oils as well as manufacturer vacuum pump grease options.
Based in Michigan, Kerr Pump is a distributor of Kerr-Lube KV-9003-100 vacuum pump oil.
KV-9003-100 Vacuum Pump Lube Advantages
Kerr-Lube has significantly fewer impurities than conventional solvent refined crude stocks, so it provides better protection for a longer period.
- Longer oil life
- Decreased down time
- Improved performance
- Consistent quality
- Lower equipment maintenance
- Improved economy due to longer oil change intervals
Compared to conventional mineral based oils, KV-9003-100 is a superior vacuum pump oil for the demanding conditions vacuum pumps endure, including:
- high inlet temperature
- high ambient temperature
- high water vapor load
- conditions that cause a standard mineral based oil to carbonize before the normal oil change interval.
Free Vacuum Pump Oil Analysis Program
To maximize your use of Kerr-Lube, Kerr Pump offers a free vacuum pump oil sampling program. Routine use of this oil analysis program can help extend your equipment life by identifying minor problems that could lead to major failure. The program is also designed to determine the optimal oil change interval for your equipment with Kerr-Lube.
When you submit your oil sample, you’ll receive a report that includes:
- Any parameters that are abnormal (e.g., excessive water dissolved in the system or unfiltered solids, high viscosity, metals, acid)
- Steps to amend abnormality with the fluid system
- Recommendations for when to sample again.
Why Use a Hydrogen Cracked Oil for Vacuum Pump Lube?
Traditional solvent refined derivatives from crude stocks contain up to 20% impurities and can cause equipment problems due to incompatibility with seal and gasket materials. Our hydrogen cracked oil instead combines hydrogen with a catalyst, high pressure, and high temperature to drive off contaminants and produce a much cleaner vacuum pump lube.
This special refining technique, along with state-of-the-art additive technology, results in performance improvements over other vacuum pump lube options.
- Exceptional oxidative stability
- Less frictional drag
- Low evaporation loss
- Viscosity stability
- Thermal & hydrolytic stability
- Rust and corrosion inhibitors
- Resistance to carbon buildup
- Low sludging tendency
