Drydene Non-Detergent SAE 40W

Part #D23040

DRYDENE NON-DETERGENT SAE 40W is blended from petroleum mineral oils and intended for use a general lubricating fluid in mild conditions where detergent and anti-wear protection is not required.


Product Applications

DRYDENE NON-DETERGENT OILS are suitable for low-pressure compressors and hydraulic systems which require non-detergent oils. Non-detergent oils are effective in the lubrication of bearings and chains in non-critical single pass systems. They may also be used in drip oiling systems and spindles where fluid loss may be prevalent.

DRYDENE NON-DETERGENT OILS are not suitable for modern gasoline engines built after 1951 as they do not contain the necessary detergents and anti-wear additives required by modern OEM and industry standards. They may be used in engines built prior to 1951 where excessive oil consumption or where API Service Categories SA/SB were recommended.

Features & Benefits

DRYDENE NON-DETERGENT OILS are economy-grade oils that provide basic lubrication to non-critical machinery and their related components. They are blended using low viscosity-index petroleum base oils and minimal additive dosing which makes them an ideal choice for light-duty applications where straight mineral oils are specified and/or excessive fluid loss may occur.
