Value Proposition: Technical know-how and a lubricant recommendation from Dow Corning applications engineers helped drive costs down. Application: Lubrication of vacuum pump in chemicals rocessing plant. Problem: High-purity synthetic oil was rapidly oxidizing, resulting in a buildup of tar and varnish that caused pump seizure every four to seven days. Solution: New technology ultra high-purity synthetic blend vacuum pump oil
