Barrier Fluids

Barrier Fluids

Summit Barrier Fluid lubricants are formulated from the highest quality synthetic base stocks and fortified with additives to provide a non-reactive, oxidatively stable fluid for seal service over an extremely wide temperature range.

These fluids have excellent low temperature fluidity and high temperature stability properties as well as the ability to efficiently transfer heat, and keep the seal face cool. Summit’s Barrier Fluids do not contain componants that are known catalyst poisons, and are compatible with most commonly used seal materials.


Barrier Fluids are recommended for convection or force flow systems and double mechanical seal applications.
