Castrol Magna CTX (previously called Magna™ MGX and Energol™ MGX) circulating oil range are based upon high quality solvent-refined mineral oils and performance enhancing additives.
The Magna CTX range provides high oil film strength, outstanding rust protection, antiwear, antiscuff, anti-oxidation and water separating properties.
Magna CTX circulating oils are engineered for use in MORGOIL back-up roll bearing systems such as those manufactured by Morgan Construction Company, Danieli, SMS Demag and others. These oils meet or exceed:
Morgoil Lubricant Specification Rev. 1.1 (27 Jan 2005)
Danieli Standard 0.000.001 Rev 14
Magna CTX 88 is also recommended for high speed No-Twist™ Rod Mills with a single lubricant circulating system.
In No-Twist Rod Mills having two lubricating systems, the higher viscosity grades are used in the low speed roughing stands and the lighter grades in the higher speed finishing stands.
The higher viscosity grades of this product are also very suitable to be used as paper machine lubricants, due to the high thermal/oxidative stability, as well as the outstanding performance in rust protection, water separation and wear/scuffing protection. In such applications, it functions as a joint bearing/gear lubricant in most lubricating points, including the rolling bearings of the driers.
Magna CTX circulating oils are also suitable for use on other primary mill and mini-mill bearing application systems.
