The Energy that Keeps Namibia Moving



Sasol Steam Cylinder C Oil 460 is a compounded blend of mineral oil and animal fat with good adhesion to metals and with excellent lubricating qualities under wet conditions.


It is intended for the lubrication of:

  • Valves and cylinders of reciprocating piston steam engines operating under saturated steam conditions and at pressures which do NOT exceed 1,2 MPa.
  • Cylinders of piston compressors under wet conditions.
  • Industrial steel on bronze worm gearboxes.
  • Automotive worm gear axles operating under API GL-2 service conditions.

Features and Benefits

Non-compounded straight mineral steam cylinder oils complying with CKS 90 (such as Sasol Elara 460) are preferred for superheated high temperature and high-pressure steam engines or where good separation from condensate is required.
