Fomblin oil – Y-LVAC Perfluorinated Polyether Vacuum Pump Fluid
Fomblin oil is an inert lubrication oil and sealing for vacuum pump (dry pump) which transfers combustible or corrosive gases. Fomblin oil has superior features such as high resistance to chemical, solvent, thermal and electricity. It has properties of that similar to PTFE/ Teflon but different in the state of matter. It is liquid at room temperature and it has a wide working temperature range.
Fomblin oil is used to replace hydrocarbon oil for safety reason as it is a non-flammable lubricant and do not react with corrosive gases.
Areas of applications where fomblin oils, greases and lubricants are used include aerospace, automotive, chemical, military, nuclear and data processing. Often used as heat transfer fluids for semiconductor, electronic, electrical and solar energy.
Fomblin oil is a very environmental friendly product as the used and contaminated lubricant can be recycled by means of process through advanced filtration methods and be reused.
Fomblin oil is a product of Solvay Specialty Polymers. It is one of the most reliable and widely used brand where PFPE oil is concerned. Primarily the demand are coming from the CVD module of the semiconductor industry. The deposition of chemical gases is part of the process to create thin films on the substrate. Vacuum pumps are used on CVD equipment and require PFPE oil for the lubrication.
Some of the vacuum pumps brands which uses fomblin oil are Edwards vacuum, Oerlikon, Ulvac, Ebara, Busch, Pfeiffer
Fomblin oil are very high in molecular weight and are sold in 1 kilogram pack. Y L-VAC grades available are 25/6, 16/6, 14/6 and 06/6.
