  • Synthetic Solvency - Keeps equipment clean.
  • Ashless - Keeps equipment free from metallic ash deposits.
  • Compatible with Seals - Has excellent compatibility with seals.
  • Blower Protection - Protects blower through a wide range of operating temperatures.

  • High Film Strength - ROOTS™ synthetic lubricating oil carries up to 700% greater loads than other mineral and synthetic oils.
  • Low Friction - Extremely low coefficient of friction proven to save energy over conventional oils.
  • Compatibility With Other Oils - ROOTS™ synthetic lubricating oil is compatible with, and can be mixed with, other mineral oils and most other synthetic oils No special cleaning is required at change out for blowers previously running on mineral oil. NOTE: It is NOT compatible with silicone or glycol synthetics.
