The Energy that Keeps Namibia Moving



Sasol Turbine Compressor Oil Synthetic 46 & 68 synthetic lubricants are designed to perform under severe operating conditions of turbine and compressor applications. They are formulated with highly effective ash-less additives to provide superior oxidation resistance;

thermal stability, excellent water separation and outstanding protection against wear.


Sasol Turbine Compressor Oil Synthetic 46 & 68 is intended as circulating oil for steam and air turbo-machinery, namely turbine and compressors. It can also be used in generator bearings, gearboxes and governor controls in steam-, water- and electrical-driven turbines.

Sasol Turbine Compressor Oil Synthetic 46 & 68 can be used in a variety of applications including anti-wear hydraulic systems, oil flooded rotary vane and screw type compressors, industrial bearings and light to moderately loaded gear systems not requiring extreme pressure formulated lubricants.

Features and Benefits

Sasol Turbine Compressor Oil Synthetic 46 & 68 have the following advantages:

  • Extended service intervals – to combat the build up of harmful acids created from thermal and oxidative stress.
  • Outstanding oxidation and thermal stability – provide excellent resistance to the formation of sludge, varnish and carbon deposits.
  • Wide operating range - the combination of oxidation stability and low pour points makes these products applicable over a wide range of temperatures than mineral oils.
  • Reduced inventory – highly versatile, ashless additive package allows the lubricants to be used in a variety of applications.

Storage and Handling

  • Use PVC, nitrile or other oil resistant gloves and protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
  • Where eye contact is a potential hazard, goggles should be worn.
  • Avoid temperatures above 80°C and strong oxidizing agents.
  • Ambient temperatures and atmospheric pressures normally encountered within buildings or roofed-over outdoor storage areas are acceptable.
  • Avoid entering areas where mists or vapours have built up as a result of abnormal temperatures or pressures without the proper breathing equipment and protective clothing.
