GBR Technology Ltd
Our company was formed in 1993 following the purchase of part of CVC Scientific Products Ltd and we are now a major supplier of vacuum fluids in the UK and services customers in Europe, the Middle and Far East.
Through our existing arrangements with the oil companies GBR can also offer an extensive range of other products. Our customers have welcomed this service as it enables them to source a wide range of fluids and greases from a single source. We represent:
* Chemtura - Anderol Products
* Dow Corning - Silicone Fluids and Greases
* Du Pont de Nemours - Krytox Fluids and Greases
* Inland Vacuum Industries Inc - Vacuum Fluids
* M & I Materials - Apiezon Products
* Myers Vacuum - Distillation Equipment / Vacuum Gauges
* Petro Canada - Advanced Lubricants, Speciality Fluids and Greases
GBR is approved supplier to a variety of industries including Aircraft Engine Manufacturers, Vacuum Heat Treatment, Coating, Lighting, Semiconductor, Metallisers, Universities, Food Packaging, Pharmaceutical and Government Research & Development Establishments. GBR is ISO 9002 registered, ensuring our dedication to quality, full batch traceability on all our products, with Health & Safety documents and certificates of conformity where required. Our extensive range of oils and greases is backed by full technical advice and personal service. The listed lubricants are normally all ex stock and any order received before 2.30 pm is dispatched the same day which saves customers having to hold stock unnecessarily. We also offer a full range of replacement diffusion pump heaters plus other vacuum spare parts.
All pump manufacturers recommend their own brand of pump fluids which in the majority of cases they buy in from a lubricant manufacturer. GBR offers a comprehensive series of equivalents and alternatives which are not only based on the required viscosity for the pump but also accommodate the various processes and conditions that the pump maybe handling.
Our experienced technical staff can discuss individual process problems, have degraded oils analysed, and suggest suitable solutions.
Refined Hydrocarbon Oils - for pumping air and non aggressive elements
Technical White Mineral Oils – for exposure to certain corrosive and reactive gases
Triple Hydrotreated Mineral Oils - have hydrophobic properties so can handle high levels of water vapour without emulsification
Food Grade White Oils – where direct or indirect contact with food specifies a pharmaceutical grade
Fully Synthetic Fluids – for thermal stability in aggressive environments
Perfluorinated Fluids (PFPE) – for full chemical resistance and high oxygen content processes
Your choice of fluid will depend on the application and the ultimate vacuum pressure your process requires. GBR offers both manufacturers’ and our own branded products.
Silicones – the most popular fluids offering a wide range of pressures.
Hydrocarbons – A cost effective group of fluids. Ideal for vapour booster pumps.
Polyphenyl Ethers – Thermally and chemically stable for UHV applications.
We stock a comprehensive range of greases all designed to have a low vapour pressure to work in vacuum environments including the popular Apiezon and Dow Corning products.
KRYTOX OVERVIEW (PDF)
High performance perfluoropolyether (PFPE) based oils and PTFE thickened greases.
Pioneered by DuPont and developed for NASA Space Mission in the 1960’s, now the lubrication solution of choice in conditions of temperature extremes, high oxygen content and chemical environments.
Krytox is chemically inert, has no reaction with oxygen, and is extremely high and low temperature stable.
