2 I n t ro d u c t i o n While the changing of our label for turbo oil is relatively new, our experience in lubricating turbine engines is not. In 1949 the Research Division, which was initially responsible for the development of our turbo oils, helped turn the vision of gas turbine powered flight into the reality we accept for granted today. By developing the first synthetic oil that could be used successfully in gas turbine engines, much wider fields to the aircraft designer were opened. This position of leadership has never been relinquished and you can depend on us just as you did in BPTO 2380 BP Turbo Oil (BPTO) 2380, available throughout the world, is now being used by over 350 airlines representing a majority of the free world s commercial airline requirement for 5 cst turbo oils. This fact attests to the outstanding performance of this product in the wide variety of engines and accessories now in service.

3 P roduct Description BPTO 2380 is a synthetic oil having a viscosity of 5 centistokes at 210 F that is approved against US military specification MIL-PRF-23699F-STD, DEF STAN /2* (DERD 2499), and meets the requirements of most jet engines and associated accessories. It is a Type II oil which provides a more balanced combination of thermal and oxidation stability, load-carrying capacity, lower volatility and low temperature flow characteristics than other 5 cst jet engine oils. These features provide long trouble-free performance under most conditions. Synthetic oils of this type are not all identical. The performance advantages of BPTO 2380 are achieved by careful selection and balance of basestocks and additives to provide the desired performance. Details of laboratory analyses of physical, chemical, and performance properties are provided in the Appendix. Significant performance properties are discussed below. Where detailed information on the laboratory test methods and the significance of results is desired, a member of our BP technical staff will be happy to provide them. V I S C O S I T Y : While most Type II synthetic turbo oils have essentially the same viscosity at 99 C (between 5 and 5.5 centistokes), BPTO 2380 is less viscous at very cold temperatures than other Type II oils. This offers a distinct advantage, which permits BPTO 2380 to be used in some critical applications where other Type II oils are excessively viscous. For example, at -40 C the viscosity of BPTO 2380 is well below that of competitive products. Competitive Products BPTO 2380 A B Viscosity, cst at -40 C , , 640 VAPOR PHASE DEPOSITS: A major advantage of BPTO 2380 is its ability to limit vapor-phase deposits. With some competitive oils, heavy deposits have formed where the oil mist and vapors come in contact with hot engine surfaces resulting in migrating deposits. LOAD CARRYING: BPTO 2380 provides load carrying ability, as measured in the Ryder Gear Test well in excess of requirements established by the engine and equipment manufacturers. Long life of bearings, gears, and other highly loaded lubricated surfaces is thus assured under normal operating conditions. C L E A N L I N E S S : Minimum formation of varnish or sludge deposits is one of the characteristic advantages of BPTO Long periods of operation are possible without the danger of scavenge pump screen plugging or the corrosion that often accompanies excessive d e p o s i t s. BULK STABILITY (resistance to physical or chemical change resulting from oxidation): The high degree of oxidation resistance of BPTO 2380 permits long periods of operation without significant increase in viscosity or total acidity, the two principal indicators of product oxidation. The need to change oil because of oxidation effects is rare when using BPTO Most users find it unnecessary to make oil changes in spite of occasional mechanical abnormalities that create unusually severe oxidizing conditions. C O M P A T I B I L I T Y :While considerable laboratory data is available to demonstrate the compatability of BPTO 2380 with metals, elastomers and other lubricants, the extensive airline experience most adequately demonstrates this property. Details are given in the section on Product Performance. SEAL WEAR: Proper functioning of carbon seals is essential for the life of the engines that use this type of bearing compartment sealing arrangement. Poor seal performance may be caused by lubricant properties that promote (or fail to prevent) wear of the carbon at the carbon-to-steel face. BPTO 2380 has provided the dependable performance in numerous airlines that was predicted by extensive laboratory tests. * BPTO 2380 is approved against DEF STAN /2 (DERD 2499) for both OX-27 and OX-28 requirements. OX-27 is for use in military gas turbines and accessories. OX-28 is for use in marine gas t u r b i n e s. 2
