Speciality Oils

Caltex Aries 150

Aries® is a high performance lubricant for percussion-type air tools, which is formulated from highly refined mineral oils, extreme pressure, oili- ness and tackiness additives, emulsifiers, rust and corrosion inhibitors, and anti-foam and anti-fogging agents.

Available in

208 Ltr

Protects against wear
Extreme pressure performance withstands heavy shock loads typical of rock drill service, protecting the equipment against rapid wear.

Protects surfaces in wet environments
Excellent emulsification properties prevent water wash-off from critical areas when operating with wet air, or during hollow rod “wet drilling” operations. Effective rust and corrosion inhibitor system protects critical components in wet air or “wet drilling” operation.

Enhanced performance
Highly refined base oils with low carbon forming characteristics and special oxidation inhibitor prevent the formation of sludge and deposits which can produce sluggish valve action. Effective anti-foam inhibitor resists foaming in air-line lubricators to enable easy control of oil feed by ensuring regular supply of lubricant to the tool. Special anti-fogging.

Aries lubricants are designed to give maximum protection to percussion rock drills.

They are formulated from highly refined, high viscosity index, paraffinic base stocks and additives, which provide performance characteristics expected of an exceptional rock drill oil.

  • Percussion-type air tools operating under wet or dry conditions, including:

– Rock drills

– Concrete and pavement breakers (jackhammers)

– Tampers

– Rammers

– Riveting and chipping hammers, etc.

  • Centralized lubricators of larger crawler-mounted pneumatic drill rigs
  • Below are general ambient temperature guidelines for adequate atomization of air- line lubricators.  OEM guidelines precede these, and should always be followed.  Aries 150:Above 25° C Aries 320:Above 30°C
  • Meet the requirements of Ingersoll-Rand Rock Drill Oil Specification
