Petro-Canada ARDEE™ 32

Rock drill oil

Basic Identifiers

8628 process mineral 32


Ardee™ oils are formulated to lubricate and cool the mechanisms of airoperated rock drills. They are ideal for use in equipment running in demanding situations with high air-flow rates, drill shock-loading and high piston temperatures. There are six viscosity grades to meet temperatures ranging from -35°C / -31°F to 45°C / 113°F. Ardee™ 32 is for winter conditions, Ardee™ 68 to 150 for underground operations, with the 150 grade being favoured in SECAN drills and in mining operations trying to reduce oil consumption and misting. Ardee™ 220 is normally used in summer, in open pit operations using drills with a bore larger than 10 cm / 4 inches. Ardee™ 32 is recommended for use in plant air-line lubricators, especially where the air is water laden.

ASTM D341 Viscosity Calculator

You may calculate the viscosity of the oil at various temperatures based on ASTM D341. This uses the two sets of calibration data that we already have in order to calculate the viscosity at any temperature. You may input multiple temperatures at once, seperated by comma.
