Mobil Vactra No. 3 (55 Gal. Drum)
Developed for exceptional machinery protection from wear, rust and corrosion, Mobil Vactra No. 3 (Viscosity Grade 150) satisfies the strict requirements of slideways, exhibiting superior lubricity and load-carrying performance to improve production of quality parts. Mobil Vactra No. 3 provides separability from aqueous coolants, reducing harmful cross-contamination to enhance machine life and performance of both the lubricant and the coolant. Mobil Vactra No. 3 is recommended for large machines where precision is required and way pressures are high, for vertical and inclined slideways where drain-down can be problematic, and for moderate-service machine tool gear drive mechanisms. Mobil Vactra No. 3 contains exceptional frictional properties on a wide variety of way materials, including steel-on-steel and steel-on-polymer, reducing stick-slip and chatter. Use Mobil Vactra No. 3 to prolong tool life and for smooth, uniform motion at design travel speeds.
Mobil Vactra Oil No. 3 is recommended for use in machine tool slideway systems that require ISO VG 150 slideway oil.
The Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series has been developed and specifically designed to provide an extra margin of machinery protection by satisfying the stringent demands of slide ways. The oils exhibit excellent lubricity and load-carrying performance contributing significantly to improving the production of quality parts. The Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series provides separability from many water and aqueous coolants reducing the potential negative effects of cross contamination which helps to enhance the service life and performance of both the lubricant and coolant.

Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series products are recommended for the lubrication of machine tool slideway systems. They are designed for use with combinations of cast iron, steel and non-metallic way materials. Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series may be applied by hand, forced-feed lubricator or in flood application by circulation system.
Mobil Vactra Oil No. Series of products are suitable for use in applications that require Fives Cincinnati specifications P53, P47, and P50.
Mobil Vactra Oil No. 1 and No. 2 are recommended for horizontal slideways on small to medium size machine tools. They are also suitable for circulating application in large machines and as a moderate duty hydraulic fluid.
Mobil Vactra Oil No. 3 and No. 4 are normally recommended for large machines where way pressures are high and good precision is required. They are also recommended for vertical and inclined slideways where drain-down can be a problem and for moderate service machine tool gear drive mechanisms.
Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series can be used for lubrication of ball screws, linear guides, headstocks, translating screws.
Mobil Vactra Oil Numbered Series is recommended for applications where oil contamination of the aqueous coolants shortens coolant batch life.
