A line of compressor and vacuum pump fluids based on ultrahigh-purity synthetic and mineral- oil formulations is available from Dow Corning Corp. Suitable for use in humid environments, Moly-kote fluids are designed to provide less misting from vacuum-pump discharge and are low odor. Most are formulated in accordance with FDA Regulation 21 CFR 178.3570 for food-grade lubricants with incidental food contact. The oils are available in pour points down to 144oF (-62oC). Special-purpose oils are available.
