VITROLIS DL WG represents a most significant enhancement in the technology of scoop/gob accelerator lubrication – offering outstanding benefits in terms of Health & Safety/Environmental features.
Historically these products have been formulated on mineral oil based technology. Initially conventional mineral oils/hydraulic fluids were used which formed high carbon/ash type deposits. Latterly these have been replaced with very highly refined products which are completely ash free and have very low carbon forming tendencies.
Both these technologies suffer from the inherent disadvantage that, at high glass gob temperatures of up to 1000ºC, they are inherently flammable.
VITROLIS DL WG is an aqueous based fully synthetic, (mineral oil free), scoop/gob accelerator lubricant. Extensive field trials have shown it to posses all the desired characteristics of these fluids in terms of gob loading, acceleration and low deposit formation.
Being aqueous based the product has no flash point and therefore greatly reduces the risk of fires associated with the use of conventional mineral oil based products.
