Royal Purple Inc was one of the first manufacturers of a complete line of High Film Strength Synthetic lubricants to meet today's industrial and automotive market demands.

Royal Purples synthetic lubricants excel in severe operating conditions and heavily loaded equipment in industries such as petrochemical plants, refineries, paper mills, steel mills, drilling rigs, cogeneration plants and marine shipping. Royal Purple is both approved and recommended by many Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM).

Royal Purple's high film strength lubricants significantly improve equipment reliability and efficiency. Upgrading to Royal Purple's clean, high film strength, energy-efficient, long-life lubricants is the easiest and fastest way to reduce maintenance and operating costs. Using Royal Purple lubricants will make your equipment run smoother, cooler, quieter, longer, and more efficiently.

Royal Purple's Barrier Fluid FDA® is a clean, pure, non-reactive fluid that provides very stable seal performance over an extremely wide temperature range, satisfying most seal service requirements whether for Double, Dual or Tandem mechanical seal designs.

Beats the Competition

A major mechanical seal manufacturer conducted extensive seal performance tests, and the results established that the Barrier Fluid FDA outperformed eighteen other leading competitive fluids. The Barrier Fluid FDA excelled with:

  • A very low seal face Delta T that is an excellent and precise measure of seal performance
  • An extremely low STD (i.e. Standard Temperature Deviation). This indicates maximum seal stability during operation
  • A minimal Ra value resulting in smoother seal faces with less wear

Extremely Clean

Double, Dual or Tandem Mechanical Seals feature opposing seal faces (stationary versus rotating), thus sealing the pump from the outside environment. The seal is lubricated and lubricated by a barrier fluid that circulates between the seal and seal pot. Some of the fluid is trapped between the opposing seal faces, forming an extremely thin fluid film that both lubricates and seals.

Most new fluids are relatively dirty, having ISO cleanliness grades of 20/18/14 or greater. Royal Purple Barrier Fluids are extremely clean, having a typical ISO Cleanliness Grade of only 14/13/11 (64 times cleaner).

Royal Purple FDA (i.e. food grade) products are also Halal certified by IFANCA (Islamic Food and Nutrition Council of America), Kosher & NSF H1. Thus, the Royal Purple provides a comprehensive range of premium lubricants that meet all high-level industry safety and cultural requirements, including those used in the food and processing industry.

Superior Cooling

In tests performed by another leading mechanical seal manufacturer, Barrier Fluid FDA 22 had 400% greater flow rates and removed 2 1/2 times more heat than a competitive fluid. The FDA 22 Barrier Fluid is inert, allowing usage with most gases, such as nitric acid, sulphuric acid, etc.

What Customers Say About Royal Purple

"Following replacement (of the Barrier fluid) the average temperature dropped to 79F, a reduction of 36 degrees."

" In this EG&G Sealol test, Barrier Fluid FDA® 22 removed heat from seal faces at 2 1/2 times the rate of popular turbine oil."

"In this extensive BW/IP evaluation, Barrier Fluid FDA® 22 showed superior cooling and lubricating properties. BW/IF frequently recommends the use of Royal Purple Barrier Fluid FDA."
