Product Data Sheet


Cetus PAO oils are formulated to provide excellent lubricating qualities for many air compressors, especially portable and stationary, rotary and screw compressors, as well as single-stage, two-stage, and multistage reciprocating compressors.

While specific manufacturer recommendations vary, the ISO 32, 46 and 68 grades are most commonly used for rotary air compressors, while higher viscosity grades are preferred for reciprocating air compressors.

Since reciprocating compressors require both a crankcase lubricant and a cylinder lubricant, Cetus® PAO oils are formulated to meet this dual requirement. Cetus PAO 68 has especially been developed for the lubrication of turbochargers in marine diesel engines, where two separate lubricating oil systems are in place.

Cetus PAO meet the requirements of:

  • DIN 51506 VDL standard

Cetus PAO 68 is approved for:

  • ABB VTR.4 turbochargers

Fulfills the requirements as a low friction lubricant for a 5000 hour drain
